Recent Dry Pack Reviews

SealLine Pro Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars Used in BWCA for an 11-day trip. No problems! My wife and I used this pack on an 11-day trip in the Boundary Waters. During this time she and I both portaged loads in excess of 70 lbs, covering distances of up to one mile. While this pack has nowhere near the amount of support needed to to use as a dedicated backpack, for a portage pack, I haven't found anything better. The hip belt and shoulder harness are adequate to the task for short (.25-1.5 mile) hauls that one typically encounters while on… Full review

Watershed Animas

rated 5 of 5 stars Great bag! I love this bag! I've taken my laptop camping with me and it even survived a kayak tour. Couldn't be more happy with this brand compared to some of the junk ones I've seen. Full review

Sea to Summit Rapid 26L Dry Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Sea to Summit Rapid 26 L Dry Pack is a well-constructed and featured day pack that happens to also double as a dry bag. I was impressed with its versatility in functioning in wet conditions and also meeting my needs as a day pack, even as an overnight pack. It handles loads up to 20 lbs quite well but begs to be loaded with more than just a few pieces of clothing, as I found that the top roll can unravel if not sufficiently stuffed and compressed. The universal fit worked pretty well for my… Full review

Watershed Animas

rated 5 of 5 stars This is in my opinion the best dry backpack that $$ can buy. Here is a video review: I also really like the clear version of it to find all my stuff. I find the closer system of watershed packs to be the most trustworthy and the material is far more rugged then traditional dry bags. They cost a little more money, but they last forever. Look no farther if you are in the market for a dry bag. Full review

Outdoor Research Drycomp Ridge Sack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A well built summit pack that is able to carry the essentials and tools when bagging peaks from a base camp. I sought out this pack to fill a unique need. I wanted a summit bag that held about 30 liters, could hold tools like ice axes, crampons, and skis, and be frameless so that it could stuff inside a multiday pack. The OR DryComp Ridge Sack hit every one of those categories. For tool capability, the pack includes an external mesh pouch which holds crampons well. There are also two compression… Full review

Outdoor Research Dry Peak Bagger

rated 5 of 5 stars The Dry Peak Bagger is an excellent 'extra' pack to bring along on those long winter hikes where your main pack is heavy — filled with all the necessary emergency gear. I use this ultralight waterproof pack to stuff with essential gear at the base of a summit resulting with a much lighter pack for the steep push to the top. This pack has been a little 'gem' in both winter and summer. In the winter it is a must to keep your extra gear dry and using this as a 'summit' pack works perfectly. It is… Full review

Granite Gear Immersion Waterproof

rated 4 of 5 stars The Immersion is a welded waterproof portage pack; waterproof pack that offers the comfort of a back pack which is ideal for rocky areas such as the BWCA. This is the ideal pack for the BWCA. Welded vinyl packs just don't have a reputation of holding up to use in the rugged, rocky BWCA. It is actually waterproof (while portaging I slipped and in went the pack) and not hyped "waterproof" or "water resistant." Thank goodness the manufacturer was correct or I would have had one wet sleeping bag which… Full review

Granite Gear Immersion Waterproof

rated 5 of 5 stars Wow. For early spring, late fall multi-days canoe trips in Ontario. Superb carrier, great waistbelt, expandable chestbelt. Very comfortable on the back, even fully loaded.  A great portage pack.  Great in the rain...as advertised. I'm not much for bells and whistles so there are very few outside pockets or fancy gizmos... add some carabiners to the outside if you need to. Just finished a grueling trip in Algonquin with several 2k portages. The Immersion was a beast. The design was by someone… Full review

SealLine Urban Backpack

rated 0.5 of 5 stars My personal experience with THIS backpack: in the beginning we noticed how uncomfortable the backpack straps are, behind your neck/head area, it continuously grabs and hangs on your skin. This is due to the “handle” built out of the backpack straps which instead of separating, unite instead. After 2 weeks of usage in easy, light-weight day trips the backpack BROKE. A HOLE was made by the rupture of the backpack fabric right where the seam/rubber patch holds the back-straps to the fabric. This… Full review
