Looking for a lightweight stuff sack to keep your clothing, food or gear dry and organized? The NRS MightyLight Dry Sack provides watertight protection that won't weigh you down and is easy on the wallet.
  • Super lightweight silicone-impregnated ripstop nylon stays soft and supple and the smooth outer surface slides easily inside other bags and kayak hatches.
  • A great way to organize your gear inside a larger dry bag, backpack, duffel or dry box.
  • Unlike any other lightweight dry bag manufacturer, we tape the seams for a superior watertight seal.
  • Avoid contact with sharp objects or subjecting the sack to high abrasion, as this could compromise the waterproof fabric.
  • The MightyLight isn't designed to be the sole watertight barrier for sensitive electronics, cameras and other items vulnerable to water damage. For maximum protection of these items, use of a hard or soft case with a totally waterproof seal is recommended.
  • The sack must be closed properly to prevent water from getting in. Begin by folding the top strip over, and then fold (rather than roll) at least three more times before closing the buckle.
  • Our fold-down StormStrip™ closure doubles as a carry handle.
  • A D-ring on the quick-release buckle provides a handy attachment point.

Looking for a lightweight stuff sack to keep your clothing, food or gear dry and organized? The NRS MightyLight Dry Sack performs much like heavier dry bags at a fraction of the weight and cost.

video: How To: Seal a Dry Bag

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 MightyLight Dry Sack

    Q:

    Hi do you recommend these dry sacks for holding dry items like a sleeping bag or clothing inside a kayak - but not inside another dry bag? I'm just wondering if they are durable and/or dry enough for a use like this.
    Thanks!

      A:

      I would not expect this bag to keep items 100% dry if the bag and it's contents were to be completely submerged in whitewater. If I was going to use this while whitewater kayaking, I would place it inside another true dry bag/box (i.e. a Watershed, Pelican Box, etc.).
      I have used this bag to keep items dry inside my hiking backpack many times, and it has worked excellent for that scenario.

      I've found mine to be very dry, just make sure you roll the top down several times. Denny

      Mark, they aren't as durable as some of the heavier bags, but they're quite waterproof when closed properly.

      I am very satisfied with dry bag but I have had no immersion situations.

      A:

      I have used them as kayak dry bags on four week-long expeditions on the Mississippi River in various weather conditions. Nothing but good results. I like mine and depend on them to be waterproof. The bag (10 Liter) is just barely large enough to serve as a stuff sack for my cold weather sleeping bag. The stitching has so far held up to the force of stuffing the sleeping bag tightly into it. Watch that you don't cut or abrade them on any sharp hardware inside the kayak.

      Mark,
      I bought this type of dry bag for adventure racing so I'm always sliding them into a pack. They are incredibly light compared to other dry bags, but definitely not as durable. If you are cramming them into a boat, they would definitely abrade and wear more quickly, so not as durable long term.

      Hi Mark,
      I paddle Native kayaks and the bags have been good so far.
      Haven't tried stuffing them into an enclosed kayak.
