You can't find a new one because they don't make them anymore. Most folks who have them won't part with them. Good luck in your search.

I am lucky to have a york box, wish I could find another one as well.

Here is a good sub for a york box that I use as a cook box. Bigger than york boxes but much dryer.

Dry Box Products Page

The rubber cord system looks risky but has survived a raft flip. I added a couple cam straps over the rubber cords just to be on the safe side but the dry box designer sez not necessary.

I've also hear they are no longer made. I'm lucky to have two, one of each size. But I just Googled "York Pack" and this site came up and appeared willing to let me order one: Canoe and Kayak Padding Specialties - York Pack for CANOEING & KAYAKING So maybe they're still around? If anybody finds them let me know. thx

i sent them an email last year asking if they had considered making a smaller size, advising that there would be a sustainable market for them, but never got a response.

Hard to tell from that small picture, but it sure looks like my York 200, just without the harness. You may be on to something. Maybe I'll have to shoot them an e-mail for more info & better pictures.

just got this reply

Hey Matt,

Unfortunately we do not have any York Packs for retail; however, we do have a few in rental. If you're looking to use one in this neck of the woods, then let us know.

We do have the Harmony Barrell Packs (60L and 30L) in stock for retail. Let us know if you're intersted in one of these.

Thanks,
Brian

I've seen a couple of those barrels in action; they were old, and were semi-dry. I suspect when they were new they were pretty good, but use and sun exposure had taken their toll. But for their price ($55-80), they may be well worth it for stuff that doesn't have to stay absolutely dry.

I have been aware that the boxes aren't made anymore, I guess if someone did have one for sale it might start a bidding war. Maybe we will see them around again one day.
