Keeping electronics safe and dry is of utmost importance when we are out on the beach or adventuring internationally. We found in our travels how important of an item like a dry bag really is. In fact, since our recent trip to Costa Rica, we’ve been keen on bringing at least one in our luggage to keep things like our external hard drive and camera dry.
For starters, Amazon offers the most reasonable dry bags between $10 to $15 USD for the smallest 2Liter, or in relevant terms, enough to fit a mobile phone. Although we can’t vouch for a sea-to-summit dry bag. Amazon offers a great deal on them. However, if you have a higher budget here are a few top Dry Bags to consider:
The Panga Submersible Duffel is Yeti’s first non-insulated piece of gear that lives up to the standard of being built for the wild. This is the duffel bag designed for extended backcountry stays, fly fishing that takes you to the most remote rivers, and hunts that almost seem too wild to believe. The airtight closure makes this bag absolutely waterproof and keeps moisture (and whatever else you might come across) out.
The Wet and Dry Elite backpack from Hurley features a waterproof main compartment specially divided so you can carry both wet and dry items together, allowing you to carry one bag as you go to and from the beach. The fully welded construction helps keep gear dry while tie-down straps on the bottom add more storage options for when you’re on the go.
Here’s a reasonable option: Hurley Wet Dry Elite Roll Top Cinch Sack
In my opinion, Dakine Cyclone Dry Pack is the coolest looking backpack and my personal favorite on the list! Having experienced using two DaKine dry bags in the past, they are extremely reliable and passed the test of open water kayaking (kayak flipped over and things were still dry). The only reason I had to buy a replacement was the wife giving it away to family in the Philippines.
Here’s a reasonable option: Dakine Men’s Cyclone Backpack
