- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I recently bought this bag in the 20L size for canyoneering. I trusted my iPhone inside the bag, and it held up nicely. No water got through, no cracks formed like others have said at the creases, and it performed flawlessly. There are only a few drawbacks I can think of:
1) The bag is really heavy. It's made from REALLY thick vinyl, and it's heavy, but it's burly, bombproof, and really feels completely waterproof.
2) Because of the thick material, it's a bit stiff when rolling up to close.
The black color is really nice, and 20L was big enough for a few snacks, my phone, a change of dry clothes, and a few other small things.
The only bag to buy
- 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.
Seems very Sturdy
I just picked this dry bag up for a wilderness survival course I'm taking. I haven't field tested it yet but I have used a number of Sealine dry bags in the past and this is no different from them. It's made from a very thick vinyl and looks like it'll take a lot of abuse, which is good for what I'll be using it for. I got the green which is a great color that contrasts well with anything found in nature making it very visible in case you tip your raft or canoe and have to retrieve it. I'll update once I've taken it out into the field.
High Quality Bag
Can't wait to try it out. The way the top of the bag rolls over a few time should keep all water out. Very pleased
Vinyl material makes for a heavier bag. It does it's job superbly! Kept everything dry on the boat. Priced great! Plenty of room for all my gear needs. Not the best for hiking or backpacking because it's a thicker material, but It's great for kayaking, boating.

Sea kayaking is my gig and I am anal about gear performance.
Of all the drybags I have (like 20!) these ones are the most dependable.
While not exactly supple and a little bit chunky I see no abrasion/wear after prolonged use. The slightly sticky fabric seals well when rolled down properly. Not submersible leakproof but no drybag is, nor intended to be.

I'm a serving Peace Corps Volunteer with a 13" Macbook Pro (13"x9"x1") that I'd like to protect in a dry bag. I'm not sure what size would be appropriate to fit the laptop. Could someone help me work this out?
Hey Jen, this is definitely a bag I'd trust to protect my Macbook. It's a bit on the heavy side, but the durability gives peace of mind. I own the 30L which easily fits a 13" pro along with tons of other gear. If you're just looking to keep your Mac in it and no other gear, the 30L is probably way too big. I'd guess the 20L would still have a wide enough opening to fit the 13" pro in, but I can't say for sure. Hope this helps.
Burly Dry Bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you are looking for a durable, heavy duty dry bag look no further than the SealLine Baja Dry Bag. I have the 5-liter version and this thing is bomber. As soon as I picked it up I could tell that the material was legit. That is a good feeling, and in the many times I have used it since it has held up to my expectations. Get one, it'll keep yo stuff dry!
Good dry bag, toughness a little exaggerated
I'd say that these are a good compromise between nylon bags and the heavier pvc ones like those that NRS makes. As others have said, they're too heavy and stiff for backpacking, but they're great for canoeing and kayaking. Lots of people are saying that these bags are really tough; I'd say that they're pretty abrasion resistant except that they develop weak spots under the stress of creases / tight bends in the material. I actually put a hole in one pretty quickly by jamming it (somewhat violently) into the back of my playboat. If you treat them a little more gently, they hold up.
Tough As Nails!
Would by this bag over and over again in other lives if I had a choice. Amazing durability and well built. In need of a dry bag? This will be your best decisions of your adventurous life.
I love this bag! When I need to keep stuff dry and safe this is the bag I grab. I use mine for camping trips in the canoe and on my ATV, its just to bulky for backpacking, but I have a rain cover for that and rarely do I take an impromptu swim when Im hiking. If you want a bag to strap to your ATV rack or to act as a canoe seat for a five year old you cant go wrong. Mine typically is covered in dirt and mud or laying in a small pool of splash water. About a year ago I wore a small hole in the side due to vibrations on the four wheeler rack. I purchased the Seal line repair kit for a few bucks, because I hate to give up on anything, and to my surprise my old-dirty-beat-up-trusty bag was back to taking abuse in no time. I didnt plan on getting two years out of this bag the way I treat it but here we are still keeping my stuff dry. If one day my bag fails beyond repair (I still have three patches left) I will probably give it a funeral with full honors and immediately get another.
Quality Dry Bag
Used two of these for a camping kayak trip to Shoshone Lake, Yellowstone. The fabric is strong and thick, seems taped well, easy to close and open, keeps the water out; stuff stays dry. Easy to hang by handle in the trees with rope (from bears.) Works well. Recomend
Great Dry Bag
Worked great for stuffing in the compartment of a sea kayak for a 6 day paddle. 20L size. Easy to seal.
Note: other uses include being a pillow when stuffed with extra clothing
Seallines are a must have for all kayakers and canoeists. I went to a camp where just about everybody there is using to sealline to keep their personal gear dry on river trips and boundary water trips. I never heard one complaint or story about a broken sealline. They are simple to use and are always reliable. Also, I HAVE heard about broken sea-to-summit dry bags. There is nothing worse than a faulty personal bag and a WET SLEEPING BAG on a trip so stick with sealline.
Recent fishing trip in Gulf of Mexico all gear dry as can be after 3 days in salt air.
used the bag on my motorcycle trip to maine. Excellent. I got rained on several times during the trip and my clothes and valuables stayed dry. Excellent bag and color also. Made me more visible to other cars

Are the dimensions the full length of the bag, or the length when the bag is full closed and sealed? And diameter or with as laying flat?
Any canoeist should have this
These are the toughest dry bags that I know of. Thick, durable rubber all over ensures a complete seal from water, rocks and other snags. I use my 4 bajas particularly in the BWCA, where when something gets wet, kiss it goodbye. The D rings make them easy to hang from bears, and just as easy to attach to the canoe to prevent a loss. The toughness of them also poses a problem when I try to bring them on a pack trip, as they aren't as flexible and compact as nylon drybags. But still, nothing compares on the water.
durable and waterproof
i have a variety of sizes of bags that i took on a canoe trip in the boundary waters. as long as you close it correctly, i have never had a leak. although i never left it submerged for a long period of time, there was never any condensation on the inside of the bag.

I was wondering if you have the sealline "drybag" that has a neck rope, and would be the size for a small camera? als wondern gwhat size I would need for my sleeping bag, like a seira design -7 mummy size? Thanks, Joan
