No experience with the others but I used seal line until a friend bought me an Outdoors Products dry bag from walmart.

I stayed away from them at first, but really they have held up great (I dare say better than my seal lines?).

I now own several OP ones and they have served me VERY well for several years. I think the 40L is typically $39.99 and the 20L is $19.99, but awhile back I caught them on sale for $20 and $10 (I still wonder if they mis-labeled that week- ALL of their dry gear was crazy cheap so I stocked up).

Worth looking into IMO, and I feel they are more durable (definitely thicker) than my seal line bags.

I still have my first Watershed Colorado that I bought back in the late 1990s, the material was thicker and there are no thumb loops--but that bag is still going strong. In 2001 a friend flipped his boat in Alaska and short story long--after being pinned and upside down under a huge sweeper tree--the only thing dry and not full of silt was his Watershed Colorado--that, after 2 days and nights under water before we could arrange for a helicopter to find and extricate his boat.

Which reminds me, one of my chores today is to package and send one of my Colorado's back for repairs--I tore it under the zipper opening it incorrectly.
