A clear solid choice
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Made of a very durable and thick PVC. Seeing everything you can pack is convenient. It does it's job wonderfully. Worked wonderfully on a week long trip through Gates of Lodore.
Great to see your gear, pretty sturdy.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use these for sea kayak touring along the New England coast in summer and this past winter. I've dunked mine a few times and they've been solid. As long as you FOLD them about twice over, you can fully submerge and your stuff stays dry. They feel more sturdy than many of the lightweight bags on the market, but not quite as sturdy as the non-transparent SealLine bags.
I particularly like to keep my DSLR camera equipment in these so I can find what I need on the fly. I always pad them in with pack towels to absorb any small bit of moisture, but I've dunked this with camera gear inside and it's kept the moisture out.
I've also thrown them around on the beach and used them bike touring. I don't seem to have the same issue with dirt attraction as the previous poster. Although if you have two of them side-by-side, they tend to stick together a bit so that shoving them in a kayak hatch is sometimes harder than using the non-transparent versions. Not a big deal though...
For environmental reasons, I got the Ecosee dry bag to replace a ripped vinyl See Dry bag. The transparent urethane has the unusual trait that it attracts dirt and dust like a magnet from both inside and outside the tent.
