LEGENDARY DRY BAGS
The first NRS dry bags were constructed from heavy-duty truck tarp material and designed after military delousing bags. Although the designs have changed over the last decades, our dry bags are still known for durability and the keeping gear dry. The legendary Bill’s Bag can hold enough gear for a month-long excursion and handle the abuse gear goes through before, during, and after trips. The High Roll and Expedition Duffels deliver the same rugged dependability as the Bill’s Bags in a style that makes it easy to pack and find gear. Shop All Dry Bags Now »
