Both sides of the bag have one solid holder; paddlers can simply put in their pump and paddle float without adjusting sloppy mesh. To remove gear, simply click the strap to release the buckle. Bag can fit 3 liter hydration system, with tube hole design that provides easy access. A hidden handle beneath the bag eliminates the possibility of confusing spray skirt with deck bag when capsized. Mesh compartment proves storage inside deck bag and allows water to easily drain out when taking the bag up. Bag fastens to the deck with four buckles. The buckles allow for installing and unleashing with ease, with no need to pair and route for the buckle like conventional deck bags. Dimensions: 44 x 25 x 10 cm.

Featuring an EVA hard bottom shaped into the brand’s signature ProTek Tip silhouette that provides significant improved protection. Full padding with a perfect width is designed to provide a 360° protection. Side zipper, and webbing adjuster improved paddlers’ user experience. Paddlers can now take their paddles on a plane trip without worrying damage the paddles. Full protection, and better traveling experience with Gearlab sticks!

The Gearlab Paddle Float

Gearlab’s Paddle Float is an essential safety tool to carry on every kayak outing. The Paddle Float meets all safety requirements for both Greenland style and Euro-blade paddles. Constructed with quality materials, it provides excellent buoyancy and leverage to re-enter a kayak. Pump and Paddle float are essential life savers when paddlers encounter difficulties on the water. With its innovative new design, Gearlab has taken the deck bag to the next level of safety. A key safety tool, Gearlab’s Paddle Float is ideal for self-rescue, as well as for practice learning new rolls and mastering a balance brace. It is adaptable for use with both Greenland and Euro-style blades. A single blow-up valve inflates both chambers of the float, making it quick and easy to deploy. The float is constructed with quality materials, and the bright yellow color and reflective strip provide greater visibility in the water. USD$49

Gearlab Kayak Dry Bag (KDB) is both lightweight and durable, making it ideal for sea kayaking and long expeditions. The Kayak Dry Bag is shaped and tapered for efficient storage. It offers less weight at the top of the bag, allowing for an easy roll-top closure. The lower shell is fashioned from a more durable TPU fabric. The KDB is available in three sizes: 10 Liter, 14 Liter, and 18 Liter.

GL-Gear Bag

The Kayak Dry Bag includes tote-style handles with top webbing and a bottom handle designed for quick cabin grab and removal. The KDB’s unique design also allows dual zones for dry and wet storage. The bag’s bottom half enclosure is designed for dry goods, and the top half provides an open-air stuffing zone for wet goods. The two-tone heather fabric features dual sides coated with TPU and a PU top to allow for a quick spray-down cleaning. While its innovative high-tech design makes it perfectly suited for outdoor pursuits on the water, the Cabin Dry Bag also features a handsome two-tone design that will allow it to carry over for urban lifestyles.
