The PEAKUK throwline comes in 15m, 20m or 25m lengths. The one we have here is the smallest 15m version.
The throwline comes equipped with 15m of 9.5mm floating rope. Compared to the 18m of 7.5mm rope used in the HF weasel and 18m of 8mm line used within the Palm Equipment Lightning throw bags. So although it is very slightly shorter the thicker rope means that the system is much easier to handle when under load.
It is World First Aid day, so it seems an appropriate time for the superb Dirty First Aid series.
We all love to kayak, sure. It has some things we love and some we hate. First Aid often becomes the elephant in the room.
When was the last time you or your peers did a course or a workshop? Do you keep ‘up to speed’ on developments?
In this series I am pleased to offer a ‘dirty’ First Aid approach. This is suited to kayakers and river users. Using a ‘find it fix it’ approach to incident care and management.
This first article will lay the foundations of rapid emergency aid. It’s a simple approach that a basic personal First Aid kit and things carried on you can deal with. Now is not the time to discuss what you should or should not carry in your kit. Read the series and make your own mind up.
After a few years in development Palm Equipment has revealed the Shuck helmet. I tried out a 3D printed Shuck almost two years ago but was sworn to secrecy. It took a few days to print and was super heavy.
Roll on a couple of years and the Shuck has been released into the world.
