Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


A compact and cost-effective way to meet legal requirements, and a device with real-world application for sea kayaking safety. The Micro has the same bag style as the Northwater regular tow line but is about 2/3 the size. It’s a waist-worn system with a pre-set but adjustable short or long tow.

  • Two wide-gate stainless steel carabiners anchored on either side for immediate access. Unclip one for a short tow, unclip both for a long tow
