The HF Weasel is HF’s smallest and most compact throw bag. If space within your boat is at a premium then this bag may be the one for you. The Weasel fits even in the smallest kayak or can be fixed and carried on a waist belt (HF Swifty Belt).
If a throw bag is needed in a emergency you probably won’t have any time for a second go! Therefore the most important factors when using a throwbag is how well it throws, and how easy it is to get the bag to land on target. In both cases the HF Weasel fits the bill. I found the bag easy to throw both under and over arm. The rope pays out nicely during a throw and is also easy to repack if you do need (or have time) to have a second go.
As yet the HF Weasel has only been carried in the bungee cord on my Liquid Logic seat, but I am keen to get hold of a belt system to wear it around the waist. Experience has taught me that the times I need a throw bag tend to be the times when my boat has gone on a solo mission after a wet exit.
Available in the classic colour combination of red-yellow or in high contrast black-yellow (not sure about that combo as it seems little counter-intuitive).
