Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been through lots of different dry bags over the years and will now only use the SeaLine Baja bags. My primary use of the bags is for extended canoe trips (including the 260-mile Texas Water Safari), which invariably result in the bags sitting in the water that accumulates in the bottom of the boat.

These aren't the lightest bags out there, nor are they very supple, but they are tough and don't leak. The tough vinyl material stands up to abuse from boats, rocks, and whatever else you might encounter on the water. It seems every other bag I have used has leaked to some extent, but not the Baja bags.

After suffering through several pairs of more sandal-like water shoes, I began looking for a more sneaker-type shoe and decided on the McKenzies. I have worn them on about ten river trips over the last few months and really like them. They are durable, comfortable, and very versatile. They dry fairly quickly and are good for off-river hiking. I used them on a 3-day trip on the Devils River in Texas, which is known for its extremely sharp and coarse limestone. These shoes help up very well while dragging boats across shallow spots in the river and were great for side hikes over nasty, rocky terrain.
