This season DRE stepped up their throw bag game and took the trusted Down River Throw Bags to the next level! Still made with their reliable UV-resistant nylon and webbing, with a mesh bottom for easy draining and a foam insert for proper floatation, but they’ve added some upgrades! First, they installed a second grommet to the bottom of the bag allowing you to run your weight bearing knot so just the loop is exposed from the bag, and the rest of the knot is contained within the bag (See Photo). This system provides an easy attachment point for carabiners and mitigates the risk of entrapment by minimizing the amount of exposed rope. This system also contains the foam insert more securely. They’ve eliminated the loop bungee drawstring, and made it into two separate pieces of bungee, knotted on the end and fastened with a barrel lock to prevent the drawstring from wrapping around a limb. Finally, they tightened up the top webbing hand/attachment loop for easier buckle access and a tighter synch. These upgrades make for a much cleaner rescue tool.
