Findings: I have a few of these fabulous dry bags in various sizes. I use them kayaking and backpacking. Last summer I packed all my gear in storm sacks when I hiked the Narrows in Zion National Park. Despite being under water all day, my gear was all 100% dry. Others were hiking holding their packs over their heads to keep them dry. This can put you off balance and risk a fall. I wasn’t worried about my pack getting wet, so I was able to focus on balancing while hiking in the river. Who knew a dry bag could keep you from falling? I use these bags on land trips as well. They help to compress my clothes to save space in my pack. In Nicaragua, they kept 100% of bugs and dust from creeping into my clothes. This is a huge bonus–especially for your underwear! I really like the plastic loop at the top for tying bags together and the sewn on loop on the bottom for easy grabbing. After a year of pretty constant and heavy use, the lamination hasn’t cracked at all. I give these dry bags a hardy thumbs up!
