I used a Pacific River Bag on a borrowed raft for a Grand trip and loved it. The Pacific River bag doesn't have a zipper closure but a draw tight rope closure. I liked the clam shell lid, as it provided as extra layer of assurance that nothing was ever going to come out. It also holds the load tight if you end up upside down (as someone else pointed out). It survived a flip in Crystal just fine. The lid probably isn't necessary, though, if you tie a good knot and don't overfill the bag.

That being said, when I get a raft I'll be buying a Pacific River Bag (or something like it from Stitches' or Tuff River Stuff) and will seriously consider adding a lid if it doesn't have one. It looks to me like the Cargo Thing from Stitches' uses cam straps for the draw closure, which I really like the idea of.

I'm a fan of the Pacific River Bag and have had it for over two years. Sometimes the cam straps can be a little short with a big load, but you can easily add an extention. I've seen one person flip with it and he didn't lose anything. I feel confident that my gear will stay with the boat when I have a flip... someday.
