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.

      A:

      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.

    Q:

    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?

      A:

      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.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      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.

    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.

              I have used NRS Tuff Sacks for years. Great bags, period. Primarily being a camping fisherman, I float rivers in small cats where proper weight distribution is important. Using one large bag so as to accommodate the longer items puts to much weight in one spot. These bags eliminate that problem and make me.......a happy camper!

              Great for storing dry stuff as long as it doesn't go under water for longer than five minutes. It does keep things dry in the boat and for quick dunks.
