Whetman Sea Bean Elite 14m
Designed to be super compact, simple to use, mega strong yet easy to repack
How small can a sea kayak towline be and still work? Well the answer is about the size of a large Cornish pasty or Croissant or Empanada or Calzone!14 metre floating braided line connects to a shockcord fixed into the bag.
The line is anchored to the bag using a stainless D ring, mega strong polyester webbing and high tensile bar tack stitching.
The ergonomic panel shape assures the bag holds open to allow hands free to focus on a quick repack of the line.
The yellow internal polyester webbing is anchored through the bag to bind with the 40mm waist belt using industrial bar tacks and high tensile thread.
The 40mm waist belt has a quick release buckle & toggle & is adjustable to set the buckle centred in front of you for access.
To close the bag the shape naturally lends itself to fold and capture the line in one simple movement.
The Elite has two additional aspects. The line is spliced onto the karabiner & so offers a low profile. It is also coated in rubber which wraps around the connector giving 100mm of grip extension. There is a stainless D ring to park the connector. The D ring stands proud of the webbing & is set rigid thus will not misbehave & swivel down when you need to clip.
