Waterproof Duffel?

Recommended Posts

NECarson

It's time for me to suck it up and buy a waterproof duffel. I think... 

 

Something in the 125+/-liter size. Preferably with backpack straps as well. 

 

What do you guys have that you like (or dislike)?

I've done that before... Awkward to carry!

This might be of some interest Simms Bag.  I have the smaller backpack size and like it.

I have a couple Seal Line Boundary packs and my only complaint is it's shape which makes for tedious entry/exit. Kinda like packing a stove pipe. Friends have REI or Cabela's duffles (body bags) which I like better as they open on the long and you can carry it like a backpack using the handles although not too far comfortably.

Once you go "Contractor Bag", you'll never go back to those lightweights.😁

I've got a "few" rolls laying around.  If you can't afford to upgrade, I'd be happy to send a couple to ME.

Must it be truly waterproof? I love the patagonia black hole duffles. The Thule 70L bag is awesome also.

 

I'd not get one quite so big as >100L though, if full, it will be real hard to carry on your back.

Man, if it was a little smaller! I've got a Simms backpack that I love.

Not submersible like the Yeti bags, but freeway in a storm waterproof... 

 

I definitely won't be carrying it far... A week's worth of clothes, plus boots. Easy to transport luggage (well, for me) not a backpack.

I did 6 days in a canoe on the Allagash wilderness waterway with this one.  It is a little big for weekend trips but it’s nice to have the room for the longer trips

 

Waterproof pack

Northwest River Systems has a number of good dry bags -  the only really waterproof type of duffel.

I have a Sealine zip duffel 75 I use to carry gear back and forth to my boat on a mooring. I googled it and found one for $175 from one site. Absolutely waterproof

Any dry bag with shoulder straps.

 

Check out Watershed. I use one of their waterproof duffels for guiding multi-days on rivers. No shoulder straps on mine but they likely have a unit like that.

I have two of the Black Hole bags from Patagonia and two Eagle Creek No Matter What bags - both types are great. The Eagle Creek No Matter What bags seem more durable and beefy, but the Patagonia bags seem more watertight at the zippers, have backpack straps, and are lighter weight.
