We first made a post about Kokatat releasing a new throw bag way back in 2019. It has only been quite recently that the Huck began to appear in stores.
The Huck is a compact, mantis green coloured throw bag packed with 50 feet (15m) of ¼-inch floating polyethylene core rope with a maximum strength of 1,450 pounds. A 70 feet (21m) bag is also available.
The Huck can be purchased with or without the Kokatat belt and the one I have here was purchased with the belt. However the Huck works well on the other throw bag belts that I have here at Unsponsored HQ.
The quick-release, adjustable nylon belt allows the paddler to comfortably wear the bag on the back of their waist or in their lap.
The bag also has a slight curve which helps it sit against your body.
The bag itself is made out of a combination of 500D Cordura, mesh, and a lighter weight ripstop nylon. The main panels are filled with foam for buoyancy and has some reflective piping located above the mesh panel.
The closure of the bag has a draw cord and then a QR strap across the top.
The bag throws well and it relatively easy to repack given its size.
After throwing and repacking a few times the rope still fits easily within the bag.
This isn’t always the case for all throw bags.
