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.

  • NRS System 5 Dry Bag

    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?

      A:

      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.

            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.

                  Comments about NRS System 5 Dry Bag:

                  I used this bag on two back to back trips down the Grand Canyon during the winter. The bag sealed well and kept everything dry. Lots of capacity in this bag which comes in handy depending on the use. Personally I would have liked the Bill's bag in combination with other smaller dry bags rather than carrying everything in this large bag. The backpack straps on the Bill's bag would be helpful. It can be difficult to get gear in and out of the bag due to its size. But all in all it kept my gear dry and held together very well.
