    Name is deceiving

    From the name “Throw raft” I assumed I was getting a raft. I didn’t realize this is just a square Inflatable lift preserver. Not sure what purpose this has vs regular throwable square personal floatation devices. In an emergency this would take longer to get ready than the square throwable one I already have attached to a rope and ready to go on my boat.

    Great idea and fits right in leaning post storage. Wouldn't take 2 seconds to have in hand in an emergency!

    Great product!

    We have placed it on the boat and took up less space.

    I Choose Throw Raft

    What can any member of my family throw? Throw Raft is compact and convenient. My ten year-old kid can throw it if I fall off the bow tending anchor, or slip on the swim step landing a fish.


    Thank you, Kevin! We appreciate your feedback! Happing boating and stay safe!

    Great Fit in a boat box or bag

    The size of this unit fits in our Hard load out box as well as several of our Soft sided boat bags. This allows us to to use it in not only our skiff but our river raft


    Thanks for your review! Designed to save space, creative to save lives. Glad you are finding multiple uses for the ThrowRaft Original!

    Just right.

    No more bulky, always in the way throwable on our boat. Providing the safety we need in a small, storable package is the best solution - the ThrowRaft is just what we needed.


    Awesome, Blair! Thank you for your feedback we love that you're enjoying it. Designed to save space, created to save lives!

    Can this be transported on a commercial airliner?

    Amazing product

    Amazing product that really gives you a piece of mind when off shore, or inland boating. Finally a product that combines everything you need to survive (at a price that every boater can afford) if you find yourself in a bad place. This also makes you much more visible for a Coast Guard Helicopter, or other rescue boats, and gives you the chance you need to make it home to boat another day! Thanks Throw Raft!

    Highly recommend this product for both fresh and saltwater

    Highly recommend this product for both fresh and saltwater. Replaced my moldy cumbersome boat cushion. Quality product. Have it in all boats so I never need to think about a throwable again. USCG approved. Space saver and convenient. Easy to repack.

    Great for any boat

    Great product. Replaced our throwable with this product. Its compact and we opted to use the mountable bracket to keep it readily available if needed. Would recommend it to any boater.

    I highly recommend this product

    This product is a life saver, literally! It takes up very little space on our already too small boat and is reusable. When thrown, the throwraft actually reaches the person, unlike the seat cushion. I highly recommend this product!
