I would rate my Seattle Sports Basic Paddler’s Safety Kit review as a 4 out of 5 stars. With an MSRP of $59.95, this basic kayak and canoe safety kit is the perfect way to safely enjoy the water on a budget. While you can certainly find a nicer bilge pump, the action on the Seattle Sports pump is actually pretty smooth. It feels very solid in your hands, but still maintains a very light weight. For most paddler’s, this bilge pump will work perfectly as a safety backup.
The paddle float and safety whistle are also very nice quality. I really like the jumbo air bladders in the paddle float; it seems much more buoyant than others I’ve seen on the market. What can I say, the whistle is just a whistle, but it is nice quality and will do the job nicely as well. If you’re looking for a good and reliable safety kit for your canoe or kayak at an affordable price, look no further than the Seattle Sports Basic Paddler’s Safety Kit.
