Kayak Deck Bag
A kayak deck bag, that's easy to attach and remove, is the perfect solution for an often-cluttered cockpit area.

Pack in all on-the-water paddling essentials that might be required at a moment’s notice, in a tote that is water-resistant. Kayak bags with window-view access or multiple organizer pockets, or handy mesh pockets within the main compartment, all allow for ease in locating gear.

Bags are lashed to a deck with multiple bungees, tie-down points, D-rings and side straps to offer ease in attachment and added security - all in a universal anchoring system to fit most sit in and sit-on-top kayaks. It is also an option to attach a flashlight, map or other such useful kit to a bag. Some of these deck bags will also float if accidently knocked or dropped into a river.

Either attachment is possible at the bow or stern position, although bags offering a low profile, or aerodynamic design are more suited to bow installation. Constructed in a rugged nylon, or nylon polyurethane coated body, with seams that are RF-welded to ensure water is locked out in case of submersion, splashing or rainfall.

A larger organizer can be outfitted with a roof top pouch for quick access, holsters to hold a paddle float or bilge pump, a mounting platform for a compass, or even a waterproof and a viewable compartment to conceal a GPS unit - and that's crucial if water keeps washing over.

Deck bags can be universal and adapt to all kayaking adventures, such as storing snacks, Kayak Deck Bagrepair kits or a spare pump or those more specific to a day or fishing, with multiple pockets to hold standard fly boxes to all other fishing gear. In addition, some of these bags can even function in a similar way to a backpack, with carry handle and straps, once shore-side.

Kayak accessories also feature a strap-on compass, a paddle leash, grips, to a kayak seat cushion or a hoist or trailer for storage and winterization. Also, heavy-duty dry bags are a versatile and durable alternative for storing kit that needs to be kept dry, this time inside a raft, and secured with a D-ring.

A kayaking deck bag is perfect for storing an assorting of essentials all from direct water exposure above deck on an overnight or multi-day canoe or kayak trip.
