Mountainsmith Modular System On Sale

I know it's a popular item for raft trips so I thought I'd mention Backcountry has the three cube version marked down from $89.95 to $35.98 for Cyber Monday. http://www.backcountry.com/mountains...BHZWFyOjE6Mjc6 I've wanted one for years but could never remember the name to search for it. Even with shipping it was only $41. Pretty stoked to finally get one. Seems like a great way to organize stuff in a dry box among other places.

These aren't water proof, are they? So you are just looking to use these in place of dividers in your dry box?

I'd be super stoked about using them if they were waterproof and didn't need to be placed inside a dry box.

Right. I've always thought it'd be perfect for putting food, smaller dishes etc., things that tend to get lost, into to keep safe and organized in the dry box then carry up to camp as needed. Great for car camping too; pretty much anything really.

I've used these things for 7-8 years now - they're great as long as you recognize limitations. Used one for several years as my "lunch bag" - holds a good size cutting board, Tupperware with various silverware & a few spices, roll of paper towels in a gallon ziplock, small container of hand sanitizer, etc. I rig it on top of my load, behind where I sit on boat, (unashamed to admit usually just carabinered in) and it has survived major hits on Grand and other trips. Usually get 2-3 years out of a cube, it's UV that does them in, the zipper will separate from the fabric and then it's toast.
Can also rig below decks and they are "splash-proof" but not "submerge-proof." Great for organizing food on long multi-days. I also use one to carry drysuit/rain gear, again just 'binered into load behind me, easy to get to and open.
If you want to use to carry stuff up to camp, one in each hand w/carry handles will hold as much as I've ever wanted to lift. But if you're going for car camping or expect to use in the carry bag, stay with the 3 unit, much easier to manuever and will hold as much as you ever need. I have both the 3 and 4 cube carry bags, the 4 unit one has lived in garage forever... the three bay one we use infrequently for car camping. Mostly the cubes are just handy to organize stuff and totally rainproof except in gale force winds - then you get a drop or two past the zippers, which have tunnel protectors.

We use them to pack food by day or meals or condiments in our dry box. Don't overload them. On last years GC trip with a day's worth of dry goods(cans) for a 15 person trip, I lifted it by the strap and the side seam tore. Other than that, they're fantastic. About 7 years ago, my wife found a bunch of red ones for something like $6-7. Haven't seen that deal since.

After a trip down the ditch I was sold on these... link below! We made them ourselves, haha rephrase I did not make them, my boyfriend at the time made them for our trip. When we were looking at bringing in new items I thought they would be perfect for boaters far and wide. I had our food organized with all I needed in each bag by the day which made cook crew days easy and they are great for off the river grocery trips too. ADORE and they are super tough so you don't have to worry about over loading them. The one in the photo was actually a homemade one from our trip. There are my two pennies for ya! Happy Holidays ~ Renee
