How To: Seal a Dry Bag (2:07)

NRS rafting guru Clyde Nicely shows you how to properly roll up your waterproof dry bag in this short instructional video. There are just a few simple steps you need to follow to get the best water-tight seal. Push out most of the air, then fold, rather than roll, the bag top. (Folding creates more sharp bends to block water entry.) Fold the top of the dry bag at least three times, then snap the buckle shut. Closed properly, NRS Drybags keep your gear dry while rafting, kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddling. The StormStrip closure on NRS dry bags is time- and boater-tested to protect your water sports gear. The StormStrip closure is used on the NRS Bill's Bag, Outfitter Bag, System 5 Bag, Expedition DriDuffel, Day Pack, Access Duffel, Tuff Sack, Ricksack and Dri-Stow Bag. It also protects and backs up the waterproof zip seal on HydroLock Dry Bags.

          Used the System 5 bag for a 10 day white water canoe trip down the Salmon River in Idaho and it worked great. Even when submerged for 15 to 20 minutes and sitting in a canoe with water coming over more often than not in the rapids. Only a slight water intrusion after full submersion.

              This bag is BIG! I have enough room to put 3 sleeping bags in waterproof bags inside this and 3 more small drybags for my each one of my family. Have been on the Colorado River twice in a canoe and everything stayed bone dry. Was very happy how fast it shipped, because the first trip was on really short notice. Thanks NRS.

                Q:

                Might sound weird but I am looking for a waterproof bag to store stuff on the roof of my car during trips. I want it to be fully waterproof so I don't have to worry about rain or snow. I am looking at bags specifically for that purpose but it seems like this might work and would give me more options for use for camping too. I am also looking at the NRS KOSS bag. Any thoughts?

                  It worked fine on a rafting trip in New Mexico in the rain. It is very
                  sturdy. I think it would be OK on a car roof but don't come to my house with
                  revenge in mind if it doesn't work.

                  This bag is great. Huge and Totally waterproof.
                  I actually use it to carry an acoustic guitar in and I
                  strap it down to my motorcycle. Great on all kinds of
                  weather. Durable too.

                  Shawn, when the StormStrip opening is properly folded and cinched it should keep your gear dry. When putting bag on the roof, orient the opening to the rear. The System 5 would have less wind resistance than the KOSS.

                Q:

                How much does this bag weigh? I need to travel by air and so I need to understand how much of the weight limit is consumed by the bag alone. I have a boat that weighs 41 lbs and I am dealing with a 45 lbs per bag checked bag limit.

                Q:

                What class waterproof is the NRS System Dry Bag. Also, does it come with a shoulder strap, or is it sold seperately. Finally, I am looking for a black color, is it readily available in that color?

                  The StormStrip closure is very watertight. The bag does come with a padded shoulder strap. It's not available in black, it's in assorted red, blue, green and yellow.
