Hey Warfer

I used one of these, when we used to carry cameras and alike while swimming up Twin Falls gorge.

They worked well, we also used a plastic bin liner as well, I never lost a camera to water, but everything that was put in there was done so at the owners risk.

Cheers Steve

Have used something just about identical - much the same closure - mine is designated a 'Baja Bag' - came from Scout Outdoors I think - various sizes - quite robust and we trust valuables to it, in a wet environment - no drama to date.

G'day Warfer,

As with everything, some Dry Sacks are better than others.

I would make sure you test it, before trusting it with your valuables.
You can have a look at this site to get an idea what of the different bags and prices.

I have used these types of dry bags a lot over the years for white water and sea kayaking. My experience is that they will generally keep the water out when done up properly and if only partially or occasionally submerged, but may still let in dampness or moisture when submerged for long periods of time. If Iam caring electronics in a dry bag I try to put it in a clip lock bag or 2 as well to try and help keep out any damness or moisture.

Rafting companies generally use otter cases or such with hard cases and seals for storing clients valuable camera's etc. Can be a bit expencsive, but will keep things dry. Depends on how wet you get and how valuable your gear is I supose.

Have fun.

Thanks guys for all your input,I have learned one lesson,put all your electronic gear or anything you keep in your cabin and dont wont to get wet (even melways,there about $30-$40 bucks alone) in one waterproof grab bag.
Vehicles fill up quick at bonnet height with some river flow if you get stuck...

Even Dunny Rolls need to be in airtight bag (i keep in cabin),once wet bit's go through the carpet,speaker vents (ugly) ok when eventually dries out it blows out..

Its all a learning Adventure..Six months in the Biz isn't long but learning heaps..
