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.

      A:

      The HydroLock bags are lighter than the RickSack. The RickSack is about
      the same weight as the TuffSack bags. I don't have a scale, but would
      guess that is the HydroLock is 12oz, the RickSack is around 18-20 oz.

      Hi fellow shopper;
      The measurement 12.5 H is with the black strip that holds the buckles, folded twice as stated in the product infor tab.
      "Sizes are measured fully packed and closed".
      My xs bag measures 19 inches high, when it is empty and unrolled. But packed and folded correctly it is about 12".

      A:

      Scott, we recommend three folds of the StormStrip closure to get a good watertight seal. The length dimension is taken when the bag is sealed this way.

    I now have this bag in several sizes. My first purchase survived incredible rapids and 16 days on the Colorado River!!! Everything stayed dry and it was easy to find my bag each day among the masses of bags. I use the smallest version for easy access to gloves, hat, and sunscreen, etc. when temperature changes during a trip.

    I purchased the XS small bag and was surprised by how much gear it holds. I thought I would really like this product to hold my camera and other gear while out kayaking. BUT, the first time I used the bag the clip jammed in the locked position. I had to ask for help in Morro Bay from a man repairing his sailboat to unjam the clip. I missed out on taking many good pictures because it was jammed a good 3/4ths of the time were were out with my camera inside.

          Comments about NRS Ricksack Dry Bag:

          This is a great day bag - not to mention for camping. I use it as my spare clothes bag for my day kayaking. It is waterproof if you follow the easy instructions [I had a small leak near the skeg and found out how waterproof they are!].

          These are good quality and heavy duty. I would recommend them to anyone.

          Service and delivery comments:

          What's to say. The service was, as usual, outstanding! Everything was as it was supposed to be. NRS is a really customer-centric company - and it shows in all of their interactions.

            The main reason for buying this product was the size. It is a perfect size for storage on my boat. I use a larger size for a "ditch bag", but that size does not store well. This one is perfect.

                This is a good sturdy dry bag and it's transparent so digging down for an item is relatively easy. I'm using the bag as a first-aid kit and it keeps everything dry and available.
