The Standard Throwbag
Our “work horse” throwbag is made of a high-tech nylon fabric that is tough, long lasting, ultraviolet-resistant, and fast drying. There is a simple to grab handle over the top for accurate and smooth bucket throws and a reverse taper for easy loading. Internal flotation and floating rescue rope keeps the RQ3 bag on the surface where it is needed. The barrel-locked elastic drawstring makes for quick reloading and closure.
The Pro Throwbag
This throwbag was designed with advice from rescuers as to what would make a perfect bag. Based on the Standard bag it sports a side pocket to store a carabiner and reflective tape around the bag. We add an NFPA Omega Locking D carabiner with every Pro bag.
The Second Chance Throwbag
We designed the Second Change throwbag around the fact that cold slows you down. Cold dulls your nervous system, reducing feedback, reaction time and sensation. To this end, we used a bright throwbag, our most tactile rope, and put a Second Chance ball on the end. In addition to adding flotation, the ball is easy to grip even while wearing gloves or after cold reduces hand strength. The ball is also more easily seen than a coil of rope under all lighting conditions.
The Mini Throwbag
Small enough to stuff in your PFD so you have it on a moment’s notice but still big enough to do the job. At a low profile 7-1/2 by 4-1/2 inches, it’s the perfect sized personal throwbag with 50 feet of either 1/4 inch poly or 1/4 inch Ultraline rope. Made of high-tech nylon fabric that is tough, long lasting, ultraviolet-resistant, and fast drying. Internal flotation and floating rescue rope keeps the RQ3 bag on the surface where it is needed. The barrel-locked elastic drawstring makes for quick reloading and closure.
CLEAN ROPE IS A SAFETY PRACTICE THAT LEAVES OUT KNOTS WHENEVER POSSIBLE. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRINCIPLE, RESCUE SOURCE NO LONGER KNOTS THE HELD-END OF OUR THROWBAG ROPES.
