    Both bags are large enough to cover the entire stern of a large whitewater creek boat. Was surprised the internal compartment ran the entire length, enough room for all items needed for camping, safety, etc. would definitely purchase again.

    Great sto-floats for overnighter whitewater trips!

    The best of the currently available kayak storage float bags. I've tried them all - including the premium bags from another company. The challenge with using the various bags for whitewater kayak overnighters is having the bag fulfill several things: 1) pliability so it can fit past often narrow openings rear of the seat; 2) Big enough to fit a reasonable amount of gear; and 3) Durability. All the other bags I have tried had deficiencies in one or more of these areas. After using the Salamander bags for a 7-day wilderness whitewater trip, I can say the tradeoffs are minimal. They seem sturdy, they are pliable so they fit easily into the boat, and they expand in the right places to fit a good amount of gear.

    Overall, I was very very excited to finally find a bag that works without compromise.

    Do it

    More like a 4.5/5 -- everything I expected, good product. We'll see how they hold up; construction seems solid and in line with the price. I assume the similar bag from NRS might be nicer but it also costs significantly more.

    In considering traditional float bags and dry bags, and how those fit in a river runner, this option is certainly practical. As compared to float bags alone, the extra money to have a dual purpose bag, was worth it to me. Easy access to the bag contents, perhaps the hose could stand to be 5-6" longer (not deal breaker).

    From what I can tell, the smalls generally fill up the stern of my 80gal, 8ft river runner (Diesel). The nice thing is, I can roll up the bag more and half-inflate them for my more slicey 51gal, Big EZ.

    If you can catch these at 15-20% off like I did, it's a no-brainier, imo.

    Salamander UltraNighter Float bags

    These bags are easy to use and worked well for us on a 3 night kayak trip. The outside surfaces are tough and durable and the closures are easy to use while the bag is partially stuffed into the boat. It would be nice if the surfaces of the inner bladders were not so rubbery as the sticky surface can make it difficult to slide loose items all the way to the bottom of the bag.

    Other float bags we have owned had similar plastic filler hoses and they became hard and brittle with age. So I have re-fitted these bags with very flexible silicone hoses to keep that from happening.

    We purchased bags of both sizes and found that there is a big difference in capacity. The large size was a good fit for our Mamba 81. (77gal) and Karma Med (86gal) but we found it necessary to finish stuffing the bag after it was partially in the boat. The small Salamander bag fit easily even when it was fully stuffed and we used other small dry bags to contain the remaining gear without the need to wrestle them into the boat.

    Overall we are very happy with these bags.
