Lightweight gear for heavy-duty protection.
Sure—it’s not necessarily likely to happen, but if you do sustain an injury while you’re paddling through the Waimak’ Gorge, you’re going to get a bit chilly waiting for rescue teams to arrive. With the Emergency Foil Survival Bag, at least you won’t need to worry about hypothermia while you wait for extraction.
Made from a mylar heat-reflective foil, this bag will reflect 90% of your body heat, preventing the early onset of hypothermia if you’re already wet or if the weather takes a turn for the worse. As soon as you climb in, it will deflect any rain or biting wind coming from 360 degrees around you. Light and compact, this bag will fit into any backpack, or even the pocket of your life jacket, with ease. While this bag is a great asset in any paddler’s kit, it’s a popular buy for those competing in the Coast to Coast.
