ThrowRaft has created the world's first inflatable, compact and throwable Type IV that's approved by the United States Coast Guard (Approval 160.049/275/0). Meets Type IV Carriage Requirement for all recreational vessels in US waters, so it can replace your boat's square cushion or ring buoy.

Key Features

  • Can be manually inflated with a pull of the toggle, or will inflate automatically when submerged in the water
  • Can be easily repacked and reused multiple times with a standard 24gr cylinder
  • Just like an inflatable PFD, the ThrowRaft is self inspected
  • Very compact and easier to throw, with packed dimensions of 11" x 4"
  • Can be thrown either packed (up to 40 feet) or fully inflated
  • Packed size is five times smaller than a square cushion, nine times smaller than a ring buoy
  • Higher buoyancy (20lb. - 90N) and larger deployed size that a throwable cushion (22" x 21")
  • Highly visible in a search and rescue operation
  • Made in the USA


Product Testing

There are over 35 U.S. Coast Guard tests conducted to achieve and maintain ThrowRaft's TD2401 approval. Testing is continuous in every manufacturing step to ensure each device exceeds U.S. Coast Guard requirements. A few tests include:

  • Puncture Resistance: Similar to USCG approved inflatable life jackets, the device must resist being punctured when inflated
  • Throw Tests: The device must be thrown with accuracy in the inflated and packed position
  • Water Spray Test: The device is exposed to water spray in the packed position and cannot unintentionally inflate
  • Uninflated Buoyancy Test: The device is unarmed and submerged underwater for an extended period of time. It is then released and must float to the surface unassisted
  • Grab Strap Tensile Test: The device’s grab straps must suspend 150 lbs of weight off the ground for an extended period of time
  • Rearm and Repack Test: The device must be rearmed and repacked by an unfamiliar user with ease
  • Drop Test: The device must auto inflate after being dropped into water from 110 feet

We know you have options when it comes to purchasing your new equipment, but we're confident that we will exceed your expectations, and here's why...

We're real people!  Our team is made up of real outdoor-loving people, just like you, and we want to share our knowledge.  We don't just sell these products, we use them ourselves or have close friends and family that do.  We do this every day, and we love answering questions.  Contact us here.

More than a .com:  We're not just another drop-shipping pop-up site that the kid down the street started in his mom's basement (yes, that's really a thing).  We started our business the old-fashioned way and we've got the physical locations and warehouse to prove it.  Check out our locations here.

We service what we sell: We operate two USCG approved liferaft servicing facilities, and we're manufacturer certified for more than 10 liferaft brands, EPIRBs and PLBs, immersion suits, life jackets and more.  So, when you have a question or want the inside scoop about what's what, you'll know that you're talking to someone that's actually seen the raft, worn the PFD, or tested the EPIRB themselves.  Check out our service department here.

We take it personally: We truly do take it personally if you're not 100% satisfied with your experience.  We want to earn your business, not just for today, but for many years to come.  We understand the power of good relationships and the trust that can only be created from following through on the big and little things alike.  We're still human and we make mistakes, but it's how we handle them that makes us different.
