Share your thoughts
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bought this for my daughter to use on a canoeing/camping trip with the Girl Scouts - it kept all of her gear dry and had plenty of room for all the essentials, sleeping bag included.
Best for light use
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Let me start with saying I'm extremely tough on my gear. I am an Eagle Scout and have been camping since I was little and now camp more than ever. This bag held up for awhile yet isn't quite up to my expectations as far as durability or comfort. I would recommend using just the dry bags packed inside of your usual pack if you're considering a serious trip. Otherwise it's a great bag for light use best if you're only staying one night out at max.
New Material- Not Doin it
These bags have been awesome for me and all my paddling. I've loved seal line and the tougher bags they make. I've been wanting a pack version of the dry bags for a while and got the 35L size. The whole PVC free and saving a few ounces- not worth the lack in durability. The corners of the folds had wear spots after two uses- in the back of a car, nothing rough! I'm super disappointed and returned this for the old version- sans Black Canyon. Sorry SealLine, but I don't recommend any of your bags with the new material.
Why is there 3 dimensions? I need to know...
Why is there 3 dimensions? I need to know diameter and height.
length x width x height, i.e. this thing is not cylindrical
Sturdy and durable and pretty comfortable shoulder straps. Lots and lots of storage, but......be careful how you pack this bag. It can be a serious pain to get stuff out of it if it isn't on top. I had to share the bag with my boyfriend for the weekend and I had to pull out his clothes to get to mine. But no major problem that smart packing can't solve.
Everything they said and more......
Backpacks are the bomb...bought three for a Boy Scout Trip on the Moose River in Maine and some white water rafting...everything packed was kept dry. Excellent fastening system, good material and superb construction...some others had bought some similar bags at similar prices, but they didn't have the backpack straps...have already used the pack on other outings and all is well....Life is Good
Is the 115L bag big enough for a sleeping...
Is the 115L bag big enough for a sleeping bag to fit in?
Should be plenty. 115L is HUGE.
It's way too big. With a down bag, 115L would fit yours and about 3 or 4 of your friends'. If you're specifically looking for a waterproof stuff sack for just a sleeping bag, try this instead-
Tell us what kind of bag you have, and we'll tell you what size to get.
Yes, 115L is a TON of space. You could fit just about anything you would want to pack in it. In my opinion ,that is considered an expedition sized pack suitable for 2 Weeks worth of gear!
Don't get this if you just need it for a sleeping bag! Like the others said, it's huge, as in 'you could climb inside it' huge. If you need a sack for just a sleeping bag, you are looking for something around 10-15 liters.
can anyone comment on how this compares...
can anyone comment on how this compares to the regular boundary dry pack? thanks
It's great! I took one of these into the backcountry of Kentucky a couple weeks ago-- during some ridiculous rains and flooding-- I had no problems whatsoever and the ease of access is just like every other dry pack.
I have only had the chance to use its a few times and it has worked great for me.I got the middle sized bag its very big so your able to pack everything u will need for a day trip to a weekend trip. Have not used it while its been raining but after getting it i know it will have no problem keeping things dry. all in all i like it very much.
It appears the dimensions are incorrect...
It appears the dimensions are incorrect and the cm and in are switched around. Could someone verify this and make the correction?
Good call! Your right, dimensions should read:
[35L] 10 x 14.5 x 20in (25 x 37 x 51cm); [70L] 9 x 17.5 x 25in (23 x 44 x 64cm); [115L] 12.5 x 18.5 x 30in (32 x 47 x 76cm).
This spec will be updated soon.
