There are several places that make them Stitches, DRE, etc and they are all good quality. Something to consider is the dimensions you want. They will all have some flexibility to get a bit deeper by dropping the straps, but find the one with the flat dimensions that best fit the size bay you want.



Cheers,
Dave

Dry bags, poco pads etc get strapped to the decks.


Beautiful beer selection.

Is that turf on top of your rocket boxes in the captains compartment???!

It feels nice on the toes and is a nice tee box for wiffle ball golf at camp

Do you have a picture of the totes or bins that all those beers were in? Trying to find something that is more protective than the drop by itself.

You can fit 35 12oz beers in a rectangular plastic frosting pail from the Walmart bakery.

What do y'all pack in your drop bags?

I don't have dutch ovens, or milk crates of produce on most trips. Seems like a drop bag is good for 1 full size drybag, but in a drybox I am able to get much more stuff, and quicker access to it.

What am I missing?

Any photos of full, but open, drop bags? Show off your packing prowess!
personally I put camp chairs, sun shade with poles, tables and similar long awkward stuff, plus a spare pfd and any extra rope I have and other last minute clutter. Things that don't fit in dry box. I use a santa bag in back and I prefer to put all my dry bags in there.

Totes of beer, propane, water jugs, bocce, sand stake, unused pfd's-booties-wetsuits.


A drop bag is also a great way to rig a smaller cooler that doesn't fit well in your frame for overnights/large group daytrip lunches.
