A duffel-style dry bag that really does seal out water.
Unlike most duffel style dry bags, the Watershed Ocoee Dry Bag has enough room for extra clothing, lunch, and a first aid kit, and it will actually keep all your gear dry. We know, it's amazing that this product actually does what it promises, but in a world filled with failed dry bags, it's amazing that this one lives up to its name. Made from high-denier nylon with a polyurethane coating, this bag keeps whatever you have stored safe and secure during the entire trip, with Watershed's proprietary ZipDry seal and rolltop closure that keep your belongings dry. (To keep the ZipDry seal from drying out, Watershed suggests you lubricate the seal with the included 303 Protectant wipe or Armor All on an occasional basis.) Several hard lash points and multiple compression straps help you store this small bag below the deck of a kayak or under a boat seat.

Man purse for raft guides
I carry my man purse on the river everyday in summer. It's super fashionable: holds all your stuff, still look tough. It's great to have your phone protected to get in touch when bad times happen. Protects wallet, trip notes, etc. Pro Tip: 303 the closure for both preservation and ease of operation.
The best waterproof bag money can buy!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
If you ever plan on taking anything of value that can't get wet with you with paddling, it better be in a Watershed. They are bomb proof. There is a reason so many boater trust there gear, especially cameras, in them. I swam a class 5 slide a few weeks ago with my bag strapped into my boat. I was carrying my DSLR and lenses in it, they were dry and safe when I recovered my boat in the eddy below.
The bags are made of a super tough nylon with a protective coating that I believe would be near impossible to rear. The seal is heavy duty and easy to open and close. Just take care of and it won't leak. Make sure to apply 303 every once in a while to the rubber to keep it from drying out, just like your gaskets on your dry gear. The clips on the compression straps are well made and can take a beating. It has hard loops that are allow you to throw a carabiner through and secure into your boat. A fully loaded bag can stuff right behind your back band in most creek boats. There is a soft flap that velcros around the carrying straps that creates a nice handle to allow you to keep a firm grip on your gear, definitely helpful during those sketchy portages. I would recommend, if you plan on using it for camera gear, getting the padded liner that fits right inside the bag. It creates a nice extra layer of protection from gravity.
Watershed makes a great product and you can't go wrong with any of there bags. The Ocoee is the perfect size for carrying those few extra essential items needed on your river trips. There is a reason most every kayaker you see has one of these in there boat or in their hand!
