Rated 1 out of 5áby kayakerone Seattle Sports bilge pump in Kayakers Safety Kit
I bought this safety kit last year and the bilge pump worked well initially but the plastic warped during the summer so that it was curved and would not pump anymore. I returned it to L.L. Bean and they replaced it with another. Customer service quickly mailed me a replacement. This spring the same thing happened to the replacement bilge pump. After kayking a couple of times this spring in warm, not hot, weather I tried to use the bilge pump and it wouldn't work ... again it was warped!!!. I contacted L.L. Bean and they are going to refund my money when I return the pump. This time I am not replacing it with the same brand but I am researching reliable brand bilge pumps elsewhere since L.L. Bean only carries this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BassFishingLady Love the Kayaker's Safety Kit
I used the hand bilge pump the day my kit arrived to remove a foot of rain water from my boat cover. It is sturdy and works like a charm. The next day I was out fishing in my kayak with my safety kit on board. I'm glad I didn't need to use it, but it's great just knowing I have it ready. The contents were recommended in the LLBean Kayak class. The instructors demonstrated how to use the paddle float to get back in the kayak while on the water. It's a great item at a good price. Very satisfied;))

I like that it came in a mess bag. I can toss it in my boat and am able to grab it when I need it. A must have for any kayaker.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WA2TQI Kayaker's Safety Kit
I purchased this safety kit for my Kayak. Everyone should have one of these. I used it the first weekend out on the river to pump out my kayak after I hit some whitewater. the pump worked great. Luckily I haven't had to use the paddle float yet but I did set it up to make sure it worked OK. I would recommend this this for anyone out on the water with a Kayak.

I wished the pump had a small hose attached to make sure the water is expelled completely out of the kayak.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MeJP Must be working because I am still alive
Luckily I havent had to use this yet. I did check everything when I first got it to ensure it worked properly. Everything seemed well made, cant say this is the best thing but it is a necessity. All in all a good purchase. Quality seems good doesnt seem to be any better than anything else I've seen or used.

Rated 5 out of 5áby kayaksforfun High quality product
This item comes as described, with all individual components well made. I especially like that it's all packed together in the slim mesh bag. It's easy to just grab and place under the rear rigging. I may never have to use it, but nice to know it's there.

This is a very nice kit--the pieces in it are quality and I am sure they would help you if you needed to get back into a kayak and bail it out. Very nice. Highly recommend.
