The NRS K.O.S.S. was created with a singular purpose in mind: to be able to shove all those odd sized river possessions into one massive container. Everything, including the kitchen sink, fits easily into this behemoth of a dry bag. (We can't guarantee you can hook up the kitchen sink; wilderness plumbing is hard to come by.)
  • Traditional roll-down closure is covered by an overlapping cover that fastens down with quick-release buckles for unparalleled splash protection.
  • Rubberized handle grips make lugging heavier gear much easier on your digits.
  • The K.O.S.S. Bag also makes a great place for that trip member who keeps complaining about getting wet! Or your cooking.
  • Sizes are measured fully packed and closed. 22" x 18" x 23", 9108 cu. in., 149 liters, weight 7.3 lbs.

    Q:

    What does K.O.S.S. stand for? Can we see some more pictures - even the thumbnail image sheds more light on the closure system than the actual product images do.

      Kitchen and other strange stuff and I have the pleasure to own one.......yahoo

      A:

      I don't remember what KOSS stands for, but I really like this bag. It closes the same way that all other dry bags close with two halves coming together and then rolling up on itself. However, it also contains a separate square top that then covers the top like a compression sack. When you look at the picture you cannot see the rolled part of the bag actually sealing it up, only the compression top. It is a great bag and I took it on a week long whitewater trip with my family (2 adults + 2 kids under 10). We put the tent; sleeping bags; kitchenware; jackets; tools like hatchet, first aid, featherlight stove and such all in it and there was room for more. It fit nicely between the thwarts of the canoe adjacent to a ~50 qt cooler.
      I thought it was expensive, but it held as much or more than a few smaller bags. I would buy it again.

      It stands for "Kitchens and Other Strange Stuff"!. One group I boated with on the Grand Canyon used theirs to hold all their cast iron skillets. Dutch ovens and other pots and pans. Lordy, it held a wealth of kitchen gear!

      It is an awesome, stand-up waterproof back with a typical roll and clip
      type of closure, but with the addition of a lid/flap that cinches down
      over the roll closure. Great, heavy duty "soft" bag for kitchen stuff,
      firewood, of a bunch of soft goods. the flat bottom is good for attaching
      to decks. Hope this helps.

      I think KOSS stand for something like Kitchen and Other Strange Stuff. This a really big bag with a really large opening. I use mine to transport a large bbq and nesting firepan on the river.

      A:

      The closure mechanism is a single velcro strip ~3 in long. This aligns the
      two ends and then it is a simple roll top bag with a buckle to keep
      everything together. Then there are 3 side buckles to cinch it closed. I
      love this bag. It is huge and very strong.

      Comments about NRS KOSS Kitchen Bag:

      This replaces our plastic storage crate. Doubles as support between thwart and bottom for better river maneuvering. Can be hoisted into trees away from bears. Would like to see bright yellow in case boat flipped.
