The All Purpose Storage Solution

In short a dry bag keeps everything you store in it dry. Rather than just a “waterproof bag” it keeps you electronics, clothes, valuables and more “dry” against ALL weather conditions. This means whatever you throw at it, water, snow, dirt or sand will be unable to damage what is in inside. The bags are quite simply a super-shield that enable you to get the most from every activity.

What makes them different?

What makes a dry bag different to any normal bag? Manufactured from 500D tarpaulin (a lightweight, flexible, hard wearing material) dry bags offer a different level of protection and storage to a typical bag. No puddle, ocean, ski slope or swamp will damage the bag or what you have stored inside. With a standard bag you are likely to either stain the bag, or damage the items inside as liquids are able to penetrate the fabrics.

Safe Inside and Out

Excellent at keeping stored items dry, they are equally good at storing wet items. For example a surf suit, set of swimming trunks, or a sweaty set of gym clothes. The dry bags are able to float, which means you can take them in the sea rather than leaving valuables on the beach, or confidently store valuables on a boat.

Functional, lightweight and versatile

Dry bags are easy to fold away and store, but equally effective at storing heavy items over your shoulder or via the carry handle all day. There lightweight properties make them ideal for packing in a suitcase for a long trip or holiday. There strength and weather resistance make them perfect for taking down the beach. Dry bag usage and benefits are endless, learn how a dry bag in you possession will help you make the most of every activity here.
