Dry Bags & Dry Boxes

Waterproof drybags and dry boxes for rafters and kayakers, including Pelican, NRS, Ortlieb, AIRE, Innova, and military issue products, are in this section.

If you are looking for a waterproof camera pouch, those are on our general accessory page. We also have a number of oddball drybags in quantities too small to feature on this page, so if you want a shape, size, or style you don't see listed email us with a good description of what you are after. Some closeout bags our on our Used boat page. Updated April of 2012.

How fancy you get keeping things dry depends on what you are keeping dry, how many days you'll be paddling, and what type of boating you do. Day trips across a lake may only merit a large plastic bag, but expedition boaters running heavy seas or tough whitewater should invest a little more - especially if their gear includes down sleeping bags, tents, cameras, and the lone set of dry clothes. Regardless of how much you spend on dry storage, we urge you to use a "back-up" system. Most drybags leak eventually and they rarely do it at a convenient time. By using garbage bags for liners you need not worry about pinholes or the one rookie in the group who couldn't quite get the part about rolling down the closure. Likewise, gasket rings on dryboxes will either over-compress (store them with the lids open when they're not in use) or get sand particles embedded in them. Either way they can leak too, so a 5-cent ziplock bag is cheap insurance for your Nikon. As a general rule of thumb, "lock-top" style drybags won't be as leak proof as drybags with multiple closure straps, and new abs plastic dryboxes always seal better than old military ammo boxes.
