Get a Grip on Your River Throw Bag

By: Pete Zimowsky, McClatchy Newspapers

(MCT) - Sometimes it's pretty difficult to get a good grip on a river throw bag, especially with the adrenaline flowing in an emergency.

The WRSI (Whitewater Research Safety Institute) Hail Mary Rescue Bag looks like a small football.

When it is thrown underhand, like traditional rescue ropes, it has an aerodynamic shape which adds more distance to the throw.

It can also be thrown over hand like a football. The bag is complete with raised threads just like a real football. The Super Grippy fabric is easy to grip.

Cost: $50; whitewaterhelmet.com.
