Watershed Duffel drybags

Anyone have one of these? Do they stay dry? I'm thinking of ordering one for a GC trip and I would hate to find out on day two that they don't keep water out. Thanks!


here it is on NRS Watershed Colorado Dry Duffel

They are pricey but pretty much bomb proof, you will probably love it. These are kinda like the Mercedes of dry bags, they are definitely dry.

Order it, or two, you will not be disappointed. They are worth the extra money.

My wife gave me one as a wedding present and I've flip tested it. It works beautifully!

Get one and you won't be disappointed, just make sure seal it up correctly.

buy it!!

during a trip down the grand in 2002 our party had a flipped raft in lava. all the watershed bags on board were completely dry and all of the traditional roll down bags were soaked inside. coincidence, i think not. i've been an advocate of these bags for awhile, but a few words of caution: first if you buy one make sure you read the instructions on how to open them, sounds funny but you can bust the zippers on 'em pretty (scarily) easily. get some armor-all for the zippers as well. Second, baby the hell out of them too, they aren't made of the quality material like jacks plastic bags are made of.

I have five of them and they're the best bags I've ever had. You won't be disappointed.

as with all drybags they are only as good as the dude who closes it but by far the best design and most effective of any bag on the market. haven't heard any thing negative on em. Good company. The fleece liner is money for camera equipment as well.

Worth the money!!!

I have 3: The Colorado, Chattooga and Ocoee. They are worth the money. I find them easier to pack. They are tougher than they look. I've used my Colorado for 3 full seasons guiding on the middle fork, throwing my bag on the ground, dragging them, etc etc, and I have yet to punch a hole in them. Definitely keep the zipper lubed with 303/armor all. They are worth the extra cash and will not dissappoint. I will never buy a roll down bag again...
