I'm buying a second one of these bags to handle my paddles. The inside is scratch-preventing fleece and there's a sleeve for the first paddle so that the blades don't make contact with the other paddles. There's also a seperator inside that makes sure that the paddles don't knock into each other. I've had one of these for 3 years and it takes wear and tear very well. Definitely don't skimp on protecting your valuable paddles.
Peace of mind

I own an expensive Werner kayak paddle and was concerned about protecting it, especially when I travel to Vancouver Island this fall for a paddling trip to the Broken Group Islands. I did a lot of looking before buying this NRS bag. There are multiple inner straps to keep my two piece paddle in place, the padding is thick and snug, and the bag is lightweight and easy to carry thanks to the adjustable shoulder strap.

Very Impressive !

As soon as the bag came I put both my Camano paddles in. I had just purchased the carbon Camano and I wanted to make sure it was protected. It is 240cm and fit perfectly.
Awesome travel bag

I recently bought this bag to transport my $300 paddle on camping trips. Not only is it well made, it offers superior protection. Now I don't have to worry about damaging my paddle when throwing it in the back of my SUV with the rest of my camping gear.

I have been continuously using this paddle bag for the last year and it is still in perfect condition. It offers great protection and is a very functional design. I have recommended it to several of my kayaking friends.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
almost strong enough

took my wife's paddle to patagonia. it was convenient, easy to carry, and easy to spot on the luggage carousel. wasn't quite strong enough to stand up to the baggage handler's abuse. they managed to almost rip the handle off. luckily we were able to use the included shoulder strap. that old commercial with the gorilla baggage handler must be true. maybe they use elephant seals in patagonia.Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Great value
As Good As they Say

this really is a great paddle bag. I have used and own a lot of NRS products over the years and this might be my favorite. I carry a 215 Werner bent shaft and a 210 Werner straight shaft and both fit with room to spare. In fact, if I could change one thing about this bag it would be to make it a bit shorter. If I was a low angle paddler I might not be saying that. all in all this bag is a MUST HAVE if you are like me and have spent way too much money on carbon paddles and want to be able to store and transport them and not worry about getting them dinged up. I too highly recommend this paddle bag by NRS.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Lasts forever, Performance, looks cool, Cons: one size fits all is long
You can quit looking now.

Really like this bag. Inner locking straps keep handles from clanking into each other. Protects paddles from getting buried and damaged in car. Soft blade pockets and padding. Pocket on front perfect for gloves.
Excellent Bag: I recommend it

The NRS paddle bag is an excellent product. I own a 2-piece Werner paddle and want to protect my investment. The bag has good padding, straps, and pockets to keep the sections firmly in place. The bag has no flaws: excellent workmanship. I recommend the bag to anyone seeking to protect their paddle.
Great Paddle bag!

I use it for my dragon boat paddles. The locking straps keep the handles from moving, with a protective flap in between. I've used it to transport 4 paddles and it has done the job.
