Dry Bag Reviews
As its name implies, a dry bag is designed to keep your belongings dry, whether while fishing, kayaking, boating, camping, or otherwise. They come in a variety of sizes, allowing you to keep your clothing, gear, electronics, and food out of the water and the elements. Made of durable, abrasion-resistant, and moisture-repellant materials, dry bags are essential pieces of gear for any outdoor excursion in, on, or near the water. Dry bags are typically constructed of either vinyl or nylon materials. Vinyl is usually reserved to make smaller dry bags for small, personal items. Medium and larger sized dry bags are typically constructed of nylon, as it is more durable and can be coated with CORDURA silicone for waterproofing and abrasion-resistance. The seams on dry bags are also reinforced as to not allow any water to slip in through the stitching. Most dry bags close with a hypalon roll top, wherein you roll the top of the bag several times then secure it with a buckle to create an air and water tight bag with a convenient carrying handle. Other bags employ the use of a press-and-seal zipper mechanism that is also effective at keeping water out, but typically reserved for smaller bags.
