The Flip Line Bag is designed to help flip your raft back over into the proper position in the event that it turns over in rough waters. The Flip Line Bag contains 12 ft. of poly-rope that you tie to the outside D-rings on your whitewater raft. In the case of a flip, unfurl the 12ft. line, pull the line over the inverted bottom of your raft, and pull the raft back over onto it's right side.
These flip lines have an elastic drawstring so you can quickly pull out the flip line and get your boat flipped back over before the next rapid. When you're on top of an upside down boat floating down river you need to be able to reach down and just pull on it without worrying about getting the bag open. If you've flipped on the Lochsa River then you know this. :-)
A very much needed rope. Have not had to use it yet, but nice to have it tied to the frame incase I do. I really like the high visibility of both the bag and rope.
