This bag is HUGE! The one in the photo is the 16x33. The backpack straps are very comfortable and the top handle is perfect to grab if it is heavy load. Super burly waterproof material will keep all contents protected and dry. Pack it well and you can fit an enormous amount of gear inside.

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

At the urging a few friends that have this bag I picked one up for a recent river trip and boy am I glad I did. This thing is huge, I was able to fit everything I needed in here for a 4 day river trip with some room to spare. The PVC Bill's Bag is made out of is extremely thick and durable, it would really take a lot to break through this guy. The closure system allows for a very tight seal and good compression. The harness system is the best I've encountered on a dry bag. When you fill this to max capacity it can get very heavy and the harness system makes it easy and comfortable to carry. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an all encompassing dry bag for your next river trip.

The best dry bag/pack I have ever owned

First trip out, three hours down river in a canoe, my front man ran us over a stob sideways and the boat rolled us and gear into 56 F water. Later that evening we set up camp and EVERYTHING in my bag was bone dry...

That's all, nothing more to say...

Great classic dry bag

Great dry bag. This last summer it survived my flip in Hells Half Mile on the Green in Lodore canyon. It was underwater for probably 20 minutes and none of my gear got wet.

Only downfall - after using it on several trips, there are several rough patches on the bag. The material just isnt has heavy-duty as Jacks Plastic Welding dry bags I've had in the past. Still, great bag. The backpack straps are also a very nice feature.

Great Bag

This is my go-to pack when I go camping on the cahaba river. Nothing crazy but to get to my camping spot I have to swim. I use this bag as a float for me to swim with and the contents stay bone dry. The material is burly and absolutely bombproof. The two straps on top of the roll closure are fantastic for attaching an additional dry bag for added space and versatility. The shoulder straps are comfortable with lighter loads but I do wish this pack had a hip belt for heavier trips. Lack of a hip belt forced me to give it 4 stars.

Very sturdy

    I have had and used a HD bills bag (with the reinforced bottom) for 3 years of commercial guiding as well as getting stuffed with gear and strapped to the top of the car and it has stood the abuse very well and always kept everything dry and holds plenty of gear. I typically packed two sleeping bags, a sleeping pad, a backpack of clothes and plenty of room to spare. My wife has this bills bag and it has done just as well. NRS makes great dry bags that will stand up to heavy abuse.
