Flip Bag - Oar Raft

Price: $36.00


Product is out of stock


The Solgear Flip Bag is a unique flip bag. It is not just a bag with rope in it. It is designed to be in place on your raft and available in the event of a raft flip. Girth Hitch the small loop of webbing onto your raft's frame and then clip the Flip Bag onto the loop so that the carabineer (included) will open and allow the bag to slide off of the carabineer without removing the carabineer from the raft. This flip bag includes a screwlock keylock carabineer so there is no "tooth" to hook as you slide the flip bag off of the carabineer. Once the flip bag has been removed, pull out the webbing to use in levering your raft back over. There is a piece of clear vinyl tubing on the handle that is used to keep the webbing tucked into the bag. The 1" tubular webbing (included) is stronger than most conventional flip bag ropes and should last longer. This webbing is then also available for use in pin situations. Most Oar rafts will require 2 bags used by 2 people and some boaters prefer to have a bag at each corner (4 total) for quick use in overturning a raft in either direction. THIS BAG WILL NOT PREVENT A RAFT FLIP AND WILL ONLY WORK AS WELL AS THE OPERATOR. Practice is key and training in a formal Swiftwater, Whitewater, or River Rescue class is advised. Purchase of this device is subject to the Solgear Terms and Conditions.
