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.

    Q:

    I want to be able to put a large tent in a duffel, this one looks like it will work if the opening will accommodate getting the 23.5 in tent poles in the bag???? Will this one work?

      A:

      Yes, Molly, the Medium will work for that. Also look at the XXL Ricksack and Tuff Sack; they're about the same volume and less expensive.

      A:

      We each have one of these in large for our personal gear and clothes. Love them. I don't know about the dimensions, but we can fit all our individual clothes in them with room for a light sleeping bag on a two week trip. The wide mouth is great for finding stuff in the bag without doing gymnastics, or risk of suffocation (just kidding, you know what I mean). They abraid quite easily so be sure to pack them soft in transit. Gorilla tape is a perfect, cheap and permanent fix. My bad for letting it rub on the trailer.
      Hope this helps,
      Harry

      I forget what the measurements are: I have a 2 sizes in this
      bag. The small and the med. You could pack enough in the small bag
      for a couple of days on a warm summer trip. The med size bag is big
      enoughthat I use it for our week long spring trips when I need more
      warm layers for camp. Nothing gets wet, it is easy to pack and just
      a great bag!

      A:

      On dry bags with our StormStrip fold-down closure we measure the capacity when the bag when you can get three folds of the opening, which gives a good water resistant seal. So the answer to your question is Yes.

    I purchased two of these bags to strap to the back of my Kawasaki KLR650. They fit nicely, sideways, on the top stock rack. (I also have two aftermarket side frames which allow more strapping options) By putting my sleeping bag and tent in one and my sleep mat on top, I could strap it such a way that it acted as a much appreciated backrest. See picture. Two bags were enough to carry 1 weeks worth of supplies. Got caught in some nasty Canadian rain storms, but not a drop made it into the bags. Took a chance on these since they are designed for rafting. But they make great motorcycle luggage also.

    ONE WARNING: Obviously, keep away from your exhaust. Will easily melt.

        Comments about NRS Expedition DriDuffel - Dry Bag:

        I just got this bag for Christmas. I was nervous about the material in cold weather as I use this on my snowmobile.. The material stays flexible and appears durable. The medium bag is larger than I expected. I'm curious how the plastic d rings hold up as well as the plastic at the top of the opening. Stay tuned...

          Comments about NRS Expedition DriDuffel - Dry Bag:

          I ordered this dry duffle for a five day river raft trip. It was large enough to hold more clothes than I needed. We didn't dump the gear boat so it was not truly water tested, but it appears to be well-designed to keep the contents dry. Only difficulty was getting the edges lined up to fold in to seal the bag - that took practice. It was also easy to secure a rod case to the strap closures. Great Bag - much better than top load dry bags others were using.

              Comments about NRS Expedition DriDuffel - Dry Bag:

              I bought it in combination with the Paragon Pack and it's an amazing combo! I'm pretty sure that I replaced my camping pack for almost all trips! Other than desert trips, there is almost never a trip where you're not fighting to keep stuff dry (and light, hate that heavy wet pack!), and this combo is the answer, about the same volume, but no bagging EVERYTHING inside a wet pack, just one big dry pack :) and one happy camper. I find myself less hesitant to bring vulnerable items out when my whole pack is a dry bag.
