Watershed originally designed the Salmon Stowfloat Kayak Bag to aid a self-supported trip down the Grand Canyon during the winter. Since then, this flotation and storage bag has been redesigned to fit a variety of kayak shapes and sizes. Just put your gear in the bag, store the bag in your kayak, and inflate it with the long tube. Made from high-denier nylon with a polyurethane coating, this bag keeps whatever you have stored safe and secure during the entire trip, with Watershed's proprietary ZipDry seal and rolltop closure that keep your belongings dry. (To keep the ZipDry seal from drying out, Watershed suggests you lubricate the seal with the included 303 Protectant wipe or Armor All on an occasional basis.) Watershed also included a compression strap to give this bag an ideal fit for a wide range of stouter boats.
Watershed Salmon Stowfloat Kayak Float Bag - The Salmon Stowfloat Kayak Float Bag by Watershed adds buoyancy to the bow of your boat, and in a pinch it serves as a backup drybag. Float bags provide kayakers with ease of rescue if they swim, and the Salmon gives you the added benefit of a place to keep dry gear. The Salmon was originally designed for self-support winter Grand Canyon trips, and fits a wide range of boats. The Salmon is wider and longer than the Futa, with a larger opening. The tapered design easily slides in and out of boats. The inflation tube fills the bag with air for buoyancy. The patented ZipDry seal locks shut with an airtight, waterproof seal, even when submerged and under pressure. Polyurethane-coated nylon packcloth fabric offers 5 times the abrasion resistance of PVC, stays flexible in cold weather, and is more UV-stable and more environmentally friendly.
