A hand pump is an essential piece of equipment for sea kayakers and paddlers of any craft with an enclosed compartment (cockpit or hatch). The Sea to Summit Solution Gear Bilge Pump is designed specifically for canoes and kayaks. It is 46cm long - stow it under the shockcord (bungee elastic) on the deck or down the side of your seat - somewhere you can get to it easily. If you need more reach in a canoe a hose can be attached to the outlet.
The pump is surrounded by a big bright foam sleeve that will keep it floating and visible if you drop it overboard.
The pump capacity is approximately 400ml per pump. The construction is robust - marine grade screws and anodised aluminium in the body to reduce flex.
