Our Top Five Must-Have Products


#1 - Salamander Safety Throw Bag

The Salamander Safety Throw Bag is river tested, tried and true! This bag features a 500 Denier Cordura bag, tapered for easy stuffing with a bucket-style webbing handle. We recommend the Spectra core for most users, as typical river applications can often exceed the tensile strength of the Polypropylene rope.
