Paddling in whitewater or the sea, this sponge will lift out sand and moisture from the bottom of your boat that traditional bilge pumps leave behind. It can be used with a bilge pump or on its own to keep your boat dry and clean. The Deluxe Sponge can absorb up to 24 oz of water at a time and has a soft terry cloth cover.

While there is nothing wrong with the sponge I am not really convinced that it beats a standard "car washing" sponge. If you don't have a large sponge around and you are already placing an order it's a good addition due to the loop on it etc to keep it around after a capsize... but if you already have a sponge laying around I am not convinced you should run out and buy this specific one given it's price tag of $9 I do think it's a great idea to have a sponge of some kind in your kayak... and I do like the loop and the look... so I probably would have bought it anyway even though I don't consider it "high performance" which is what I thought it would be.
This sponge is excellent as a small puddle bailer for my kayak. I needed something to soak up the residual that the main hand pump would not evacuate and this sponge works great. It is a hardy sponge, not prone to crumbling or fragmenting, hey soaks up a lot of H2O. Very lightweight when dry. Great asset to the boat.
NRS boat sponge - we love this sponge! Buy this, or keep buying regular sponges. Sand taps off easy and it quickly dries.
