Dry Bags and Duffels
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 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 packing and finding gear easy. Shop All Dry Bags & Cases »

About NRS: Northwest River Supplies
In 1972, with only $2,000 in his personal savings, Bill Parks started Northwest River Supplies with one mission: to help others raft. 42 years later, Bill sold NRS to its employees. Today, the 100% employee-owned business strives to continue Bill’s legacy helping people pursue passions on the water. At our Moscow, Idaho headquarters you’ll find passionate water-lovers just like you, from rafters to whitewater kayakers, sea kayakers to stand up paddlers, kayak anglers to fly fishermen. Our lives, and livelihoods, are drawn to water.
