    Default Rafting Bag - Survey

    Hi,
    My name is Johan Karlsson and I'm currently doing my masters exam work in Industrial Design. I've done some rafting, but would consider myself a beginner and therefore I need you help with filling out a short survey.

    The project I'm thinking of doing would be a rafting-essentials-bag. A small bag that could contain or hold rafting/survival/emergency gear and be worn on yourself somehow. The gear within the bag would be specificly designed with rafters in mind, to best fit rafters foremost.
    Please help me out with my exam work by filling in my survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?s...Mbkk9Zjg_3d_3d
    Thank You for helping me out!

    Johan,

    I would not want to carry another item with me. Why not just design a life jacket that does all of this? In fact, why not design one with hunters in mind (pockets with loops for cartridges, etc). I think it would be an easier sell.

    I would somewhat echo Mikes comments. When doing whitewater, I have a throw-bag-on-a-belt, and coupled with a lifejacket and drysuit, I don't think I could carry anything else. I can have a extra biner or two in the belt-bag, and a few other items in the pockets of my high-float vest... But beyond that, I would rather not have the bulk of additional gear on me. Good luck with your project tho.
