Liferaft Services offers several ditch bag options comprised of essential equipment needed in an emergency or when being forced to abandon ship.

A ditch bag, or abandon ship bag, is a boater’s essential survival kit when emergency strikes.  Stocked with emergency medical supplies, signalling devices, rations and more, a well-though-out ditch bag can be the key to successful survival at sea.
