I have been wanting to get hold of a new dry bag to carry gear in the back of my kayak for a forthcoming trip this summer. I have used loads of bags in the past but have always had to double bag gear as the roll top systems deployed on must bags will fail at some point . Usually in my case this has been due to user error!
So I needed a bag that would be easy to store, would seal well and fit the back of my kayak really well.
First up is the Watershed Futa Stowfloat, kayak dry bag. This is a drybag/airbag combo designed to store gear and provide flotation in the back of a kayak.
Now all of the Watershed gear that I have ordered in is black. That is a personal preference. The Watershed Futa Stowfloat is available in Black, Blue, Coyote (Brown) and Orange.
You are looking at around £100 (Sterling) for this single bag. So what do you get?
The Balkan river systems is Europe’s true freshwater biodiversity hotspot. There are 69 fish species endemic to the area and over 40% of all Europe’s endangered freshwater mollusc species can be found in a Balkan river.
This paradise is under threat, these last great free flowing rivers of Europe will be lost in our lifetime unless we act.
Welcome to Movie Monday 19 March 2018 here at Unsponsored.
We have a great selection of edits to distract you away from the start of the working week.
Right here right now – 2018 Hurley Classic Freestyle And Inter Services Championships.
Way back in 2006 WRSI was a new company and we had one of the first Current helmets off the production line. At that time Unsponsored was looking at importing the WRSI Current into Europe but it was not going to be viable at the time. We used the WRSI Current for a couple of years on and off before moving to another brand.
Move forward 12 years and we have the WRSI Current Pro helmet in for review.
The 2018 Hurley Classic starts tomorrow. A live feed is available for the flood lit final.
1930 – 2030 (GMT) Saturday 17 March 2018.
Prijon have recently released some images of the new Prijon 2B Duo/Tandem kayak. As with all Prijon kayaks the 2B is blow moulded and starts life as a tube.
When I first saw Paul’s photo (below) I initially thought that the PFD looked like a FX or FX R in a funky new colour. But there is clearly a different zip and an additional zipped side pocket.
The jacket looks new as well!
The NRS Zen Rescue PFD is a low-profile rescue jacket with all the features essential to assist guides and experienced paddlers in a swiftwater rescue situation. Modeled after the popular NRS Ninja PFD, the low-profile design of the Zen allows unrestricted range of motion.
We’ve had a few details sent through to Unsponsored about the new Prijon 2B kayak and have even seen a mini printed model. So if you are after a Duo or Tandem whitewater kayak you now have a little bit more choice.
Spade Kayaks have recently released more images and specifications of the new Royal Flush. Check them out.
