Selway Stows (Super-urethane Nylon)

We use lightweight 200 denier nylon with a super-urethane coating for our Selway Stows and Selway Snack Sacks. This material has been pressure tested to 10 psi, has a breaking strength of 240 lbs./in., will survive low temperatures without cracking, flaking, or separating, and is mildew resistant. Seams are heat welded and nylon taped.

To prolong the life of your Selway Stows, protect them from abrasion and excess heat. The most common causes of abrasion on any float bag is sand in the boat and direct contact with foot pegs and other sharp objects. Keep them away from camp fires and other heat sources.

Wash in cold water with mild detergent. Hang dry
