Not the greatest picture, but per request above, here is my NRS Otter 140 with a Tuff River Stuff drop bag.
That's Great! Thank you so much for posting the picture!

I'll see if I can get those dimensions later for you.
If you order from our web site there is a place to enter your frame dimensions. We always call to chat with you, double check dimensions and make sure it's exactly what you want. We usually recommend 10-12" of drop and try to take into account floor lift from the water.

mts3212- I'll be curious to know how deep we sewed yours!

Yes it does touch the floor, but since there is a soft bag, it is hard not to have a bag touch the floor. The weight of the bag however rests on the frame. After three seasons with 60+ river days, I have not seen any wear on the floor in the area of the drop bag.

Mine is 40"x16"x10". It could easily be a few inches wider, I was being conservative. As TriBri1 reports, I also have no visible wear on the floor from it sitting on the floor, and I have comparable river days as him. If I were to do it over again if probably get a slightly shallower bag and use the straps to lower it if needed. That said, I have no intention of replacing it with another size, it doesn't seem to cause any harm.
