The NRS Whitewater Kayak Sherpa allows you to quickly and easily strap your kayak to your back. If you are looking at a long hike, make sure the Kayak Sherpa is in your gear pile... it will save you a lot of hassle and the sore shoulders before the run starts. The Whitewater Kayak Sherpa Features: Fits most current whitewater kayaks, positioned bow or stern up, and with your back against either the bottom or the deck of the boat. Adjustable, padded shoulder straps and waist belt spread the boat's weight between the shoulders and hips, increasing carry comfort. Three long, heavy duty 1 12in. webbing straps that clip around the boat give you great versatility for attaching your kayak to the pack. Leaves your hands free for carrying other gear, for balancing, or for holding onto a bow strap for longer boats. When you get to the water, stow the Sherpa behind your seat or up in the bow.
