Watershed Futa Stowfloat Kayak Float Bag - The Futa Stowfloat Kayak Float Bag by Watershed serves two key purposes for kayakers - gear storage and flotation. Intended primarily for kayak sterns, the tapered construction allows for easy sliding in and out of your boat while filled with gear. The inflation tube is used to fill the bag with air for buoyancy in case of mishaps. The patented ZipDry seal is similar to a heavy-duty freezer bag's zipper. It locks shut, keeping out moisture with an airtight, waterproof seal, even when submerged and under pressure. Polyurethane-coated 420-denier nylon pack cloth fabric offers 5 times the abrasion resistance of PVC, stays flexible in cold weather, and is more UV-stable and more environmentally friendly. Radio-frequency welding bonds the multiple layers of fabric into a single piece of material, eliminating leaks. Three external lash points and four deck attachment points keep the bag in place, and over-the-top compression straps allow the bag to be sized down to fit contents and the stern of the boat. Through intensive quality assurance, including prolonged inflation testing, Watershed produces truly waterproof bags that are guaranteed to be free of leaks. If you need bombproof dry protection for your gear, look no further than the Futa Sto(more...)

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 boats.
