I'm all for supporting local, both up and coming or established companies. Do your drybag manufacturing friends build their own products here in the united states, or do they order a shipping container of put this logo on a plastic roll top bag from china, Walmart ect ??

Here's a real drybag made in America, possibly the "best dry bags" in the world.

The best dry bags are my homemade ones, any size I want any strap I want, just a quick order from Denver fabric, a cheap plastic welder, and yes they are made in USA. I'd encourage everyone to make their own. It's time in the garage away from the wife and a few beers to boot.

And about the cheap plastic welder. I've sewn my own drybags and used seam seal, but plastic welding sounds much better. Another good place for fabric is Petersen Canvas in Fort Collins. Most of the fabric I got was scraps which they sold to me super cheap.

You salty smucks

One of the true reasons why I love this digital community. Thank you to all that help companies from the ground up when they use a good new product, get a fair warranty, never have to use a warranty, find a company serving a nitch never thought profitable, and still willing to call out a start-up that has no direct intention on serving the community try and poach free publicity. Kudo to you people, speakers of the truth.

Just got a watershed back from a torn handle strap that they actually repaired. Lets you know that they take pride in their product and still have the in country facilities to do work.

Let the roast continue...
