what are the best drybag/floatbag for a Nomad 8.5

trying to decide between the watershed futa float bag and the water wasser float/dry bag. Also heard the sea to summit brand works well too. What have you used? What would you recommend? Thx.

I just got a futa bag, and so far it's working well. The zipper is fast and easy to use and it holds air nicely. My only complaint is that the bag opening is a little too wide and kind of an awkward fit for my pyranha m3. I did take a look at the wildwasser bags, which are less than half the price, but the seal construction didn't look very substantial.

However if I needed two bags, I probably would have gone with the wildwassers rather than having to spend more than my boat is worth on futa bags.

YMMV

Futa are solid been using mine for 4 years now, love it. Only thing I would complain about other than the price is they are heavy. If I were in the market I would check these out too:

But being out of stock from the manufacturer they might prove elusive to find.
