Most of those so called Dry Sacks are over rated & over priced !! I bought some Cheap Ass stuff/compression ones years ago off camofire.com !! Outdoor Products is the name of them, they have never failed !! I have one in my pack with my down jacket & a few survival items still as dry as when I put it in there 5 years ago !!Anyone had bad luck with dry sacks failing? Cheap ones? Do you use smaller sacks or big 30 liter sacks as a liner? Your uses for them? Thanks
I am looking for sacks to put my gear in that is already inside my big pack....just to make sure certain items don't get wet....just an insurance policy for things to be dry. I'm guessing by the responses, I may just go with the Amazon suggested bags and keep it on the cheap side. I won't be spending the money on the NRS bags as that would be extreme overkill for my purpose. I appreciate all your feedback. Good luck this year in the draws!There is quite the difference between keeping your gear dry in a pack during a rain storm and having it submerged for a period of time in moving water.
Hands down NRS and even then you want to double bag if it has to stay dry.
The sea to summit ones work good, decent price you can find on sale if you look, and I second the BRIGHT colors, keeps you from leaving one on the ground when packing up in the dark. Always wondered about camo flashlights and headlamps, like why ?
