my old bag was beyond repair and this new one was just what I expected it to be. It was of the same quality and I expect it will last as long , I never leave it on the boat exposed to the weather and sun when I'm done sailing, I stow it away below, I have always put away my toys the right way. If you cover your sails with a sun cover, why not stow your Lifesling, your not going to save someone at the dock.

I bought this replacement LifeSling bag two years ago because the old bag disintegrated, literally cracked and pieces fell into the water. We are sailing in the Caribbean, so it must be UV damage. However, sailbags, hatch covers, bimini covers, and other Sunbrella has outlasted whatever they make this cover out of by a factor of 10 times longer. This product is designed to be accessible for crew overboard situations, so it must live outside. If I pay [$] for a bag for the LifeSling I expect a longer lifespan. Why don't they make this out of Sunbrella or another sturdy material? I think we will have to make our own bag.

    Im restoring a 34' sailboat and this was something I need to replace or update.
    The bag hanging on the hand rail 7/24 gets the max exposure to the elements .
    This replacement bag worked perfectly

    Comments about Replacement Storage Bag for Original Lifesling:

    The original cover lasted over 10 years. Now we are needing to buy one every season. It just does not hold up to the UV. Just a poor selection of materials for a product that lives in the sun. Make your own, you will be much happier.

        If you have a life ring and you leave it out in the sun, a new bag will eventually be in your future. The question becomes, 1 do you replace the entire system (I understand Lifering 2 is now USCG) or just get the bag. The bag is about 1/3 the cost of a new system, so a bit pricey. If you need a USCG approved throw-able I would upgrade instead, however for me the slight cost savings was better. as the rest of my unit is in good shape.

            Why can't Lifesling make a product that will last outdoors? Seems every customer has the same problem.

              Stay away from this. Oh, wait, we can't because we own Lifeslings that need replacement covers and this is the only option! My boat sits in South Carolina waters. This cover disintegrated in two years, maybe less. Another owner wrote of the same experience. West Marine should demand much better quality from their suppliers before foisting that product on us. Shameful.

                  It was great to be able to buy the storage bag for the lifesling. The Colorado sun had taken a toll on the old bag and I was going to buy a new lifesling.
                  Now I have my peace of mind back when I have guests on the boat. Great sailboat rescue system!

                  Its just a cover. It appears to have been manufactured by the same entity that made the bag for my Revere MOB rescue system. Its made of a ripstop material covered with vinyl. The graphics are exactly the same in format. The entire module barely cost more than this replacement bag. I see nothing that justifies such a high price. Its just a cover

                    This replacement bag will fall apart within 2 years. The one I bought fell apart just after 2 seasons. It sits in the boat during the Winter.
                    I called West Marine to try for a Warranty replacement and got the run around. Asked for a contact for Life Sling and got nowhere.
