Cool, small, camera-safe drybag.

I take a camera with me for most days on the rio. Sometimes I use my Watershed Ocoee, other times I use a Patagucci flyfishing bag. Those both work great, and are utterly dry inside.

They're also pretty big.

Of late I've been using one of these.

Really fits the bill for when I need something smallish. Easy access, but also utterly dry inside. Bonus that it comes with a variety of mounting options, including a shoulder strap for side hikes.

This topic comes up about once a year, here. Just thought I'd share a new option.

Looked great until I saw that little bag's price. Take $100 off and I'd probably get one. You can get a 1400-1500 series pelican or another medium sized Watershed bag for the same price. Hahaa....I guess Rafting isn't the only sport where they double the price of things just because its "designed for" use in that sport.

We all get to decide what's worth it to us, right?

I wouldn't take a pelican case for free, because it doesn't work in my application.

I'm unaware of a Watershed bag that's anywhere close to this size. If there was one I'd already own it.

Fair enough...I was just pointing out that its awfully expensive for what it offers compared to other items in the same class.

And that's part of why I shared it -- there isn't anything else this size, that's totally waterproof, and that isn't a hard case.

Sounds like your Testosterone cycles are getting a little close together.

I'm interested because it uses a new kind of waterproof zipper : TITEX, the home of Tizip waterproof zippers

Cool stuff if you're a seamster ( Not related to Teamster )

A Yard long piece for a drysuit is about $70 here : https://www.scubastore.com/scuba-div...90-cm/660274/p
So, about $25 for a foot long piece maybe.

I didn't immediately find any lengths shorter than drysuit applications, but sure there will be some coming.

Sorry to rant.

Looking further.

Selling on Ebay for about $ 125 : https://www.ebay.com/itm/Zorb-2M-Wal...-/282551427654

But I noticed they don't mention or show an inside pull to get out :0

Remark
1.Professional auto hot welding machine, never tear off.
2.Pure raw international standard 0.8mm PVC/TPU films which have high tensile strength, excellent abrasion resistance, outstanding flexibility, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
3.Widely used for family, backyard, playing center, amusement park, water games, holiday events, swimming pool and seashore scenic spot.
4.Can bear the weight of 180kg.
5.The ball may be tied a rope outside.
6.Must be accompanied by an adult,Within 30 minutes of playing time.

So, drag the kids around the lake and if they crash, they can't get out.

And the supervision within 30 minutes by an adult. Because asphyxiation ?

Is this what they do in China for summer fun ? WTF ?

Thanks for sharing that Mike, looks like something I might be able to put to good use. Could possibly be a little small though. What camera system are you carrying in it? Not sure that it will fit a DSLR with battery grip and an extra lens....
