NRS Split Kayak Flotation
Long and narrow flotation bags fit on either side of a kayak's center support pillar. The full set includes two bow bags and two stern bags. Bow bags fit forward of the foot area of most kayaks longer than 8'. We are now using 10-gauge Urethane fabric which won't leak or delaminate! Stern Dimensions: 33.5"L x 13"W at top, 3"W at bottom Bow Dimensions: 23"L x 10"W at top, 3"W at bottom To determine the correct size of float bag for your boat, measure the inside compartment and order a bag that is slightly larger in dimensions to fill the space in your boat completely.

Bags have held up well for two seasons now. Valves are airtight. There is no nylon shell to delaminate like on some other flotation bags. Lash points are durable. Good purchase.

Tough, functional, and easy to use
These bags are made out of a fairly tough urethane which is just a thinner version of that used in many outfitter rafts and inflatable kayaks. It should be able to take a substantial amount of abuse. The filling tubes don't kink too badly and are long enough to allow for filling of the bladders without removing them from the boat. The valves are easy to open and close, but they don't leak at all. These are sold individually at most stores and buying them all separately isn't cheap. Altrec cuts you a very nice deal when you opt to buy them in a set. NRS is USA-based (in Idaho) and one of the very best gear companies out there, and when it comes to protecting yourself and your kayak, it's worth buying quality equipment like this.

Great fit and very durable
These flotation bags are very easy to fit and they are very easy to inflate. They seem to hold up very well and add plenty of flotation to my boat.
