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 have a lot of these bags in all sizes. I spend a lot of time on rivers of all kinds. I like to use more bags of smaller size than one big bag. I believe they make everything easier from loading boats to keeping track of my stuff. For example one bag for tent, another for regular clothes, another for cold weather gear, one for the sun shade, etc. Easy to label and find - I also get multiple colors. They make a great bag for my "pin kit", first aid kit, etc. I have never had one leak. I believe they are easier to role (more supple) than other brands. Can't go wrong here. Definitely recommend.

      Comments about NRS Tuff Sack Dry Bag:

      I was looking for a Waterproof Bag that I did not have to worry about. This is it! Very well constructed, good seal, easy to use and easy to carry. I would not recommend it for hiking as it is built on the heavy duty side (weight). But it worked perfect for me in my open sailboat. I will buy this again in the future. Worth the money!

        Comments about NRS Tuff Sack Dry Bag:

        I ordered three dry bags to replace my old Seattle Sports bags that had come apart after considerable use. The NRS bags are well constructed and in my own dunk test worked well. I stuffed them full of paper towel rolls and threw them in my backyard pond and the next morning, opened them up and I can still use the paper towels because there was zero leakage. I don't plan on tipping my kayak over any time soon (don't we all), but this little test showed me that even thought I get a bit of water in my kayaks dry hatch, I'm not gonna worry. A good dry bag is only as good as the stitching or welding and of course, how well you roll the closure. I highly recommend them, and a big plus is that the shipping was FAST.

        Fast shipping, thanks!

            I have a few older dry bags and bought this one based on its size. My older bags are much thicker and wanted to see how this would compare. Personally I don't think you need any heavier of a dry bag than this. Works great, hasn't shown any wear and is lighter than others.

                A:

                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.

                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:

                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.

                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.
