Which dry bag should you choose for your next adventure?

Dry bags are the unsung hero of your gear list. Keeping your gear dry, clean and organised is essential for any trip and they can help make packing a breeze. 

However with so many dry bag options to choose from how do you pick which one is best for you?

Read on for our ultimate dry bag guide.


Fast and Light Adventures

From Fastpacking to lightweight hiking or any time where every gram counts - you need a dry bag which will protect your gear without weighing you down. 

Using lightweight Ultra-Sil fabrics our lightest dry bags weigh as little as 30 grams - so you will hardly notice the weight while reaping the benefits of using an ultra-lightweight dry bag.

Ultra Sil Dry Bag

Made with lightweight, waterproof bluesign® approved 30D Ultra-Sil fabric featuring Cordura® yarns, it's the perfect choice to organise your gear inside your backpack-like a pro.

The semi-translucent fabric makes it’s easy to see what’s in each dry bag too - making life on the road easier.

Watersports, Bikepacking and extreme adventures

If your trip takes you to rough terrains or you will be encountering water you need a dry bag which can protect your gear, even if it is exposed to wet or rough conditions.

Equally if you are strapping your gear to your bike you need some heavy duty protection to keep your gear free from mud and dust, whilst protecting from debris. 

Big River Dry Bag

These tough environments are what the Big River was made for!

Big River Dry Bags are a durable and abrasion resistant option that uses a strong 420D nylon fabric.

 A white interior laminate affords greater visibility, and lash loops allow secure stacking or attachment to watercraft, bikes and other equipment.
