Important safety notice: Using a cowtail for gear recovery from your kayak can be extremely risky! Attempt this only if you have practiced that before and be aware of the high forces on your body and the cowtail/PFD harness system when attached to a kayak full of water! We do not recommend cowtail use for gear recovery!
