The Lifesling2 storage bag (MFG Part# WMLS2-DXB) is made of a bright blue sunbrella type material and is more durable than the standard vinyl bag (MFG Part# WMLS2-B).

The only negative feedback I have is the color. The bright blue color clashes with the navy blue canvas on my sailboat.

Material of construction unable to resist Florida sun. When I originally bought the Lifesling2 at WM, it came in Yellow bag which lasted about 3 times as long, Will have to obtain some type of UV protection to extend life.

Salvaged my Lifesling 2 with a new civer

    Comments about Replacement Storage Bags for Lifesling2:

    Bought a used boat with the original Lifesling 2 in white tarp-like storage bag. When I took it apart the white thing disintegrated from UC damage and the sling was stuck. It would not have served well in a MOB. I tossed the bag and cleaned everything up repacked it. Now it's ready to use. And the blue canvas bag looks much nicer than the old white one. If you've never unpacked or practiced with your Lifesling, get it out and make sure it's ready to go. I recommend this bag, I'm hoping that this canvas one will be more UV resistant than the plastic tarp stuff.

        Bags must be replaced every two years. Product should stand up better than that, and I'm surprised West Marine would carry a product that only lasts two years.

            I was disappointed how soon the original bag deteriorated. This replacement seems more durable but was pricey.

            tremendous upgrade for old delapidated original

            Comments about Replacement Storage Bags for Lifesling2:

            The original Life Sling case of many, many years was starting to shed its outer coating. It was then I realized how old and unsightly it was. The new case is solid in construction and appearance. It seems more rigid than the original, making it a bit more functional for deploying the Sling and line inside.
            Last, and most important to the wife(!) is that it is spanking new and dresses up the cockpit area of our Sabre 38.

              Sunbrella will last longer than the traditional vinyl cover.

                  I have gone through three of the regular covers which deteriorate rapidly in the sun. The canvas cover is a welcome improvement and I expect it will last much longer. If I was buying new I'd up for the hard shell case which will outlast the others.

                      Our previous LIfesling storage bags were made of fabric that quickly deteriorated. This one is made of what seems to be a much more durable material. Time will tell!
