Summary

This is in my opinion the best dry backpack that $$ can buy.

Pros

  • You can trust your gear will stay dry
  • Clear material makes it easy to find
  • Very rugged material
  • Lifetime warranty

Cons

  • You have to make sure it is closed properly
  • More expensive than other drybags

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.

Watershed Animas Dry Backpack - The Animas Dry Backpack by Watershed is great for kayaking, canyoneering or scrambling around in the rainforest, because sometimes a hike can become unexpectedly wet. The patented ZipDry seal is similar to a heavy-duty freezer bags zipper. It locks shut, keeping out moisture with an airtight, waterproof seal, even when submerged and under pressure. The top-loading cylinder shape with side compression straps allows you to adjust the height when loaded. The polyurethane-coated 420-denier nylon pack cloth fabric offers 5 times the abrasion resistance of PVC, stays flexible in cold weather, is UV-stable, and more environmentally friendly. Radio-frequency welding bonds the multiple layers of fabric into a single piece of material, eliminating leaks. Padded, removable shoulder straps and the waist strap help to evenly distribute your load and offers you all the comforts of a backpack. Through intensive quality assurance, including prolonged inflation testing, Watershed produces truly waterproof bags that are guaranteed to be free of leaks. When you need room for a couple of days worth of gear, along with the convenience of a backpack, you have found it with the Animas Dry Backpack by Watershed.

The Watershed Animas Backpack has enough space for a couple days' worth of gear whether you're paddling, fishing, or looking to store some valuables in a dry bag for backcountry ski sessions. Made with high-denier nylon and a polyurethane coating, this bag keeps whatever you have stored safe and secure during the entire trip, with a 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.) There are padded shoulder straps and a waist-belt for easy carrying to rivers or up the mountain, and you can remove them when you need to store the pack in your kayak. There's also a top lug handle so you can move it around while you're fishing.
