Dry bags aren't just for the river anymore. The Westwater Backpack protects your valuables from splash, spray, or the unexpected rain storm during a portage or overnight camp.

All seams are RF welded and guaranteed to be free of leaks. Padded shoulder straps with grip strips are strategically sewn in to prevent slippage. Waist straps help distribute your load for a more comfortable ride. Size: 32" x 24" x 11", 4900 cu. In., 80 liters. To ensure you receive the best continued performance from your ZipDry Seal, Watershed recommends periodic lubrication with a non-petroleum based product such as 303 UV Protectant, Armor-All or Burt's Bees hand salve.

Dry Bags and Gear Checklist

Get a bag larger than you need : At least 1/3 of the dry bag will be "empty", even when full, so get one larger than you think you need.
Make sure you have a small, separate one for all those pesky little things : Such as keys, wallet, snack, the list is endless....
Protect Your Electronics! If you take electronic items out on the river, protect them...rivers and iPods are a poor mix.
Don't forget the rope. You need something to lash dry bags down to your raft or canoe. And keep it lashed at ALL times!!
See Through Bag? No privacy for your stuff, and it looks bad, but it's highly functional. Especially handy for smaller bags you go in and out of frequently.
