Seattle Sports Super Latitude duffel dry bag

I wouldn't put these into the same category as the Watershed or probably even the NRS Expedition duffel, but these are an inexpensive alternative and a quality item. I have a few of these in different sizes and when rolled properly they are dry. I think that they roll up easier and tighter than other roll-up bags and the air purge valve lets you really compress them. For the money you certainly won't go wrong with these. Just passing along other options.

Has anybody used the zip close NRS duffel bags? Looks like a drysuit zipper on them.

my .02$ - even if the watershed seals are bomber in theory, practice using them with frozen fingers, after consuming multiple adult beverages and covered in sand before you commit your valuables to them. Roll tops are much easier to close under duress and once you get them buckled, you generally don't have to worry about them. Not dissing them, obviously they have worked well for lots of people (see above), just pointing out some potential issues.

I wrapped a raft once for about an hour that had an NRS dry bag clipped to it. The bag was submerged and getting worked the whole time in the middle of a heavy flow class 4. Once I got the boat off, everything in the bag was still dry. Now it sits in my kayak with me and is always getting wet and still no problems.
