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.

People who say they leak are most likely Sealing them up wrong. I see too many people squeezing all the air out before rolling and clipping it shut. the right way to do it is to leave a little air in, so that when you roll it shut, you have the air pressure pushing out against the rolls causing the airtight seal. I have all sizes and 18 years of use. And not one leak.

works pretty good

the small fits well in my kayak, but as a beginner, i, uh, swim occasionally, and the bag does take in a bit of water when my boat is swamped.

      Comments about NRS Tuff Sack Dry Bag:

      I work for a humanitarian aid organization. We use this product to hold our First Aid kits. These kits travel with teams to remote and rustic communities all over the world. The do a great job of protecting their contents from weather, water and dirt etc... The kits are subject to a significant amount of wear and tear. They may return home for restocking dirty and a bit battered, but the integrity of the bag remains durable and in good shape. It is a great product that can be used and reused over and over again. The bags come in their own small clear tuff sack that is usable for other things as well. It's all good!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Completely useful items. Great service. Prompt delivery.

            Comments about NRS Tuff Sack Dry Bag:

            Bought these for a late season crossing of Lake Erie's South Passage to Camp on Kelly's Island, which I had to forego because of very adverse wind and waves during my two week window. (Went to PA, instead, to paddle the Middle Yough.) So, while I haven't used them yet, I feel I can confidently say - after packing and handling - that they are so well made, and rugged, that there is no need for the higher priced bags; unless you want shoulder straps for portaging.

                        Jessica, the height of the bag listed is with the StormStrip closure folded down three times. And the measurement is to the top of the bag, not up to the buckle/handle.

                        I don't know how much it weighs, but it's a heavy vinyl, not suitable for a backpacker. You want one of those Sealline or other lightweight bags if you are worried about weight.

                      dumb question i suppose, but are the lengths shown for the dry bag measurements with the bag rolled up as far as it will roll, or is it completely open, or somewhere in between?

                        The instructions for sealing a bag with our StormStrip closure is to fold it down at least three times. The measurements are made when the bag is sealed like this. The bag is then at it's largest dry volume.

                        I believe that all the measurements are with 3 folds on the top. That makes these bags completely waterproof. You can do more folds if needed, but 3 turns seems to be the minimum.
