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.

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 use this on my SUP when I need to carry more gear - summer for extra tick clothes if I want to beach the board and hike in the woods. As it get's colder, I'll carry extra layers, towels, cell phone, compass, wetsuit. Since starting with the SUP last year, I have bought all my gear from NRS, as it is "seaworthy", made really well, always the best for the job - clothes seam perfect, gear, seam waterproof, as good as it gets. And the one time a seam ripped, they send me replacement, received w/I 24 hours. A class act and I am particular! I will continue with them for all my gear.

          We use these for our clothing on river trips and car camping trips where rain and/or dust are an issue. Cloths stay dry and clean, as long as they are in the bag. I am a fan of the roll-top. I have never had one leak on me. The kids use the small one, and mom and dad use the bigger one. Sizes are perfect.

            I have only used this on a 7 day river trip. Initially, it seemed the closure was stiff, but this resolved after only a couple of days. I can't really comment on durability, but it seems well made.

              Comments about NRS Expedition DriDuffel - Dry Bag:

              Medium bag is perfect clothes bag for a week long trip. I chose this over the zipper seal bags because of cost and I've heard sand and dirt can keep the zippers from sealing good. This bag was more difficult to learn how to seal but got better after a few tries. More colors would be awsome to help organize. Nobody in Utah buys a black bag when it's 105 degrees on the water.

                Q:

                Considering getting the small bag to use as a carry on and extras bag for a Sea Kayaking trip to Mexico. Does anyone know if the small version will fit in an airline's overhead compartment? Was also considering the 2.2 Bill's Bag as well, but it's dimensions are slightly larger than the small duffel. Please let me know anyone who has flown with this bag before and put it into an overhead storage compartment. Thanks.

                  I have never flown with this bag but I am pretty certain that it should fit in the overhead compartment when full, especially if it contains clothing, ie. more pliable items which can be pushed to fit in the overhead.

                  I have flown several times with this bag as a carry on, and it works great
                  for that purpose and for river trips as well. An excellent choice.

                  A:

                  I have the medium, and I have used it as a carryon many times. It might not fit if it was packed full, but I never had a problem. When loosely packed it is easier to stow than a roller board. The small would definitely work, but I would just assume have a little more room.

                  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.

                  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 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!

                  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.
