Float bags are an essential piece of gear that often get overlooked by more experienced boaters. And if you’re just starting out boating, they’re doubly important. In case you didn’t know, float bags are just airbags that you blow up to occupy the volume in the stern (and sometimes the bow) of your kayak or canoe so that in the event of a capsize, your boat doesn’t sink. Seems pretty essential, right? It’s all about protecting the investment that you’ve made in your boat or perhaps of a borrowed boat. But whether it’s your boat or a friend’s, the last thing you want is to see your boat filled with water, floating away or pinned against a rock because you didn’t take the time to put in float bags. And yes, even experienced boaters swim! Make the one time purchase of a pair of float bags so that you can have that peace of mind. The Outfitters Shop has every size of float bag that you could need to properly outfit your boat, from rodeo flotation for short stubby boats, all the way to full size canoe floatation and lots in between.
