Dry Cases

Dry Cases

The GSI Lexan dry cases we carry come in 5 sizes: Extra-small, Small, Medium, Large, and an XL size that includes a handle. The little ones are for first aid supplies, wallets, cameras, cell phones, keys, maps, munchies, or sometimes boat repair items. The large and XL boxes will hold lunches, large body cameras, camp-critical items like water filters, small stoves, flashlights, or medical supplies. All sizes are made of lexan, and while they are not as thick-walled as Pelican brand dryboxes, they are very resistant to breaking and have held up great for our customers over the years. Some of our photos show red cases but we tend to get mostly the clear these days, which have a slight greenish tint.

Sometimes gasket rings on waterproof boxes will over-compress (better to store them with the lids open when they're not in use) or get sand particles embedded in them. The nice thing with the GSI cases is that the gaskets can be removed and cleaned, or flipped over. If you keep them free of grit, a good dry case is usually the most waterproof option compared to drybags or metal military boxes. If you are really worried you can always put the contents in a zip-lock bag first and then in the dry case, but this is almost always unneeded.

Dry cases are smaller plastic dryboxes designed for goodies like first aid supplies, wallets, cameras, cell phones, keys, maps, munchies, or sometimes boat repair items. Sometimes gasket rings on dryboxes can 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 develop leaks, so a 5-cent ziplock bag is cheap insurance for your Nikon. If you keep them clean and store them open though, a good drycase is usually the most waterproof option compared to drybags or military boxes.
