Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $69 Aust dollars

Pros

  • Practical and well made with great features
  • Attaches well onto deck bungees

Cons

  • Tiny gap in end of closed zipper

I love this deck bag and once attached with velcro and straps it is so sturdy I can open it easy with one hand and no movement from bag at all. Great idea of dry bag that velcro tabs inside so can be removed if one desires. Also great to have bungees on top of bag for extra storage.

Summary

Good deck bag for keeping bare essentials at hand. Minimizes wind/water drag over bulkier designs.

Pros

  • Low wind profile
  • 2 different ways to secure it: velcro and nylon straps
  • Reflective accents to increase safety

Cons

  • Outer bag isn't water-tight
  • Both are required to minimize movement

I've used this deck bag in high-wind situations, where a more bulky design would have caught and created excess weather-cocking. The bag was big enough for a small 1st aid kit, beach blanket, and my point & shoot camera. There was room for some small snacks and a water bottle, too. There is an internal framesheet that keeps the rounded shape of the bag. This also makes it harder to stow-away, as it doesn't compress down.

The straps on the outside were needed to stabilize the bag, in addition to the velcro underneath. However, I also was able to rig it so that I could secure my bilge pump with those straps by looping them around my kayak's existing bungee cords a few times in a friction pattern, then securing the bilge pump with 2 loops around.

The main pack isn't meant to be waterproof, even though it does advertise the zipper as being waterproof. When zippered closed, there is a 1/4" gap that can't be closed because of seam construction. The outer bag material tests out to be mostly water-tight (leaks from the seams), so would be wave-proof. However, I haven't tried rolling with it yet. The internal stuff-sack is both removable and waterproof (and bright orange).
