The NFPA Throw Line is a double braid consisting of a polypropylene cover and a high-strenght Dyneema® core. This construction makes the NFPA Throw Line extremely strong and versatile. Designed to be light, strong, and easily packable, it also floats indefinitely due to its materials. In addition, the rope offers a good hand and a high visibility cover in bright yellow.

NFPA Throw Line meets the strict standards of NFPA 1983:2012 as a floating throw line. The rope is an industry standard throw line used globally for decades. It has an extremely high strength to weight ratio yet packs down super small due to its size. For this reason, it is the rope in many of the commercially available throw bags on the market today.

NFPA Throw Line is perfect for rafting, boating, river crossing, swimming, diving or any other applications where a water rescue may be required. Remember, the rule is, Reach, Throw, Row, Go. Keep this line readily available.
