Show Description

Kayak flotation that doubles as storage for items that absolutely must stay dry. (Hardcore creekers love it.) A tapered shape and top compression strap let it slip into the sterns of whitewater and sea kayaks or the bows of wider/double boats. Named after Chile’s Futa river, one of the most demanding whitewater runs in the world.

  • Ripstop Cordura nylon with heavy-duty TPU matte coating is waterproof and abrasion resistant.
  • Radio-frequency welded seams are watertight.
  • ZipDry closure is submersible to over 90m; way more watertight than roll-tops.
  • Long inflation/deflation tube for adjusting volume and buoyancy once bag is in place.
  • Tip grommet and external lash points allow securing in place above or below decks.
  • Opening size is 40.6cm.
