  • NRS HydroLock Dry Bag

    Q:

    Is the Large 23" in height unfolded or folded? My concern is, would the Large accommodate a portable tent pack at a length of 22 inches and still stay waterproof if towed behind a kayak?

      A:

      the dry bag is good for keeping everything dry but is not designed to be durable enough to be towed.

      A:

      The 23 inches is with the bag filled and closed. Yes, it would be waterproof.

      A:

      The 23" is the height folded. I ordered the Medium Hydrolock drybag, which
      is spec'd 20" high. The side walls are 26" high unfolded, leaving 6" to
      roll up when sealing. I assume the Large bag is similarly generous, and
      will hold a 22" tent.
      I don't understand what you mean by towed behind a kayak. Sounds like a lot
      of drag. I haven't actually used my new bag in the water yet. It looks
      waterproof, but I wouldn't leave it submerged indefinitely.

      I'm not sure of the dimensions is the sack but I can tell you that is works very well at keeping contents dry. I highly recommend this dry bag.

      A:

      Our bags are measured filled with three folds of the StormStrip closure, the minimum we recommend for a good seal.

      It's very visible which is very important and helpful if it winds up in the
      water.

    Q:

    Is the HydroLock seal easy to close when it is cold (e.g., less than 40 degrees F)? I ask because my map case seal is very difficult to seal when it is cold.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      I'd say it's a bit more difficult because it gets a little stiffer. Lubricating the seal with something like 303 Protectant makes it much easier at any temperature.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      It's never real easy warm or cold but it's not really hard either. It just takes a little time and firm pressure. I haven't used it below 50 and rarely use it any how. I just use the bag without the extra seal.

    Q:

    Does this product float when packed with regular items, ie. jacket, keys, wallet, etc.?
    Asked on 11/25/2013 by Kevin from United States

    3 answers

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Yes. The bag seal is very watertight, so as long as the overall density of the items in the bag is less than that of water, it will float. Even when the items in the bag are more dense than water (they would sink if you threw them in the water by themselves) there is typically enough trapped air in the sealed bag that the overall density is less than that of water and the bag floats.
      ....hope this helps

      Answered on 11/26/2013 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The bag will float if it is sealed properly and the density of the items packed doesn't exceed the density of the liquid you're boatin' on.
      I like to squeeze a sealed dry bag after closing to ensure a good seal. If the bag compresses or you hear air hissing, one should reseal.
      If you're floating a river and the internal volume of the bag is 1 liter, don't exceed 1 kilogram of mass (~2.2 pounds) or it won't float....(the density of fresh water is 1 gm/mL or 1kg/L. As long as your "packed density" is less than that...it will float).
      Good Luck
      P.S. We use this bag for clothes, and normally place it sealed inside a larger Bill's Bag for double protection.

      Yes. This product works exactly as you would expect. We don't go kayaking without it.
      We pack our keys, wallet and cell phone. I know there are different sizes so you may want a larger one for jackets.
      It's super easy to use. We do always make sure to leave a lot of air in it when we seal it up - almost like a balloon.

      These bags are awesome. I have two of them and have been working in and out of a boat almost every day for three and a half months straight. They get thrown around our boat, dropped on the ground, and poked by sharp corners. My gear hasn't gotten wet once during the whole time. I don't use the hydrolock feature very often at all, I think the bag is plenty waterproof without it but I may use it in a scenario were I was certain the bag would be submerged. The only downside to the bags are their slender shape which makes you work to get out items at the bottom of the bag but the window on the side makes it so much easier. I highly recommend this bag, NRS did a great job.

      Has a zipper like a zip lock bag. I am not sure how watertight it will be. It is not obvious when you have closed it completely and my fear is not closing it completely. My hands are not as strong as they used to be due to arthritus.

      OK for my mid level camera, but I wouldn't trust it for a digital SLR.

          Nice balance between being to thick a material that it is bulky and two thin a meterial that it will not hold up. You can see inside which make it easy to find things.

              The small size is perfect for a lunch and water bottle. The Med size will fit a lunch and extra clothes. The zipper seal is a great idea, and I'd never buy a dry bag with out one. I'll buy more.. I also get these for gifts for other kayakers.

                    Only gave it a 4 star because I haven't used it on any big water yet. So far, it has performed well,and I like the zip closure...this adds another level of protection. Although I have had no problems with NRS products, I am a little weary of the clear plastic front material, as I have had similar material on other bags tear easily.
