GEAR REVIEW: Sea to Summit Lightweight Dry Sacks

“A less expensive and less bulky alternative to traditional dry bags. You can squash these into spots ordinary heavy dry bags won’t go. It fits into little corners of a sea kayak and it’s light enough to take backpacking or adventure traveling. These bags are suitable to keep contents dry in any wet situation where the bag is not submerged. They come in 1, 2, 4, 8, 13, 20, 35 L options and a variety of neon colors.”

The Sea to Summit Lightweight Dry Sacks are great if you’re trying to pack light, but don’t count on them to keep your stuff dry. I’m on my 3rd bag because I can’t afford the extra weight. If you’re canoe camping or day tripping I strongly recommend a heavier, more traditional dry bag like the Sea to Summit Hydraulic Dry Bag. They last longer, can take more of a beating and are more likely to keepyour stuff dry.
