Why do i need a Drybag?

If you’re a lover of the great outdoors why let the rain stop your next adventure? Don’t let an adverse weather situation deter you from going out and making some memories on your paddleboard or out in nature. We say the dampness shouldn’t have to dampen your upcoming plans and with all of the right gear, they won’t. Instead, keep your belongings safe and dry in a Dry Bag. Not heard of one before or convinced that you don’t need one? Think again! Read on and let us persuade you…


What is a Dry Bag?

A Dry Bag is a flexible, waterproof bag made of either Tarpaulin or PVC. They have a rolltop closure and a secure buckle to seal your belongings inside. A Dry Bag is mainly used for watersport activities but, they are also ideal for so many other outdoor activities and adventures.

As long as you seal your dry bag properly, everything inside will stay as dry as when you put it in, no matter how wet the outside of the bag gets.

Why choose a Dry Bag?

There’s no question about it, Dry Bags are the most versatile bags on the market, in terms of size and capacity. But, their real USP? They’re waterproof and ideal for protecting your belongings against adverse elements such as water and dust to a considerable standard.

Dry Bags are available in various sizes meaning they’re compact enough to pop inside your bag or suitcase if you’re off on an adventure a bit further afield. Plus, because they are waterproof this means that they can easily be wiped clean.

What can I use my Dry Bag for?

Dry Bags really are some of the most versatile bags out there in the market. They have so many different uses that most owners wouldn’t even think of.

They’re an epic piece of gear if you’re off on a hiking adventure, simply pop your belongings in it, seal it securely and hay presto your belongings are protected from the elements. No matter what mother nature decides to throw at you!

They’re the ultimate watersports companion. Simply attach by cable and tow behind your paddle board or kayak or attach via the D-Rings to keep your bag and belongings safe. Or if canoeing is more up your street (or river), stash in the bow of your canoe.

Your Dry Bag can also be used as a great saddle bag on your horse or pony. Or, even on the back of your motorbike to protect your belongings wherever your next adventure takes you.

Why buy a Saltie Dry Bag?

With so many Dry Bags on the market, it can be hard to choose the best one for you. Drybags come in various shapes and sizes and are not all made with as much love and care (resulting in them not doing their job as well as others). So, choosing one that will protect all of your belongings is super important. That’s where Saltie steps in…

Here at Saltie, we stock two types of Dry Bags. Both are as waterproof and versatile as each other although one is more lightweight and crafted from PVC, perfect for those family days out on the water and the other, our Saltie Dry Bag Elite is built from a thick tarpaulin, built to withstand even the most adventurous experiences.

Our Saltie Bags both float, something that is so important if you plan on using them out on the water. Even though you can easily connect your Dry Bag to your Kayak, Paddleboard or Canoe we all know how easy it is to drop in the water, so having a floating Dry Bag makes it a lot easier to retrieve from the water. A Saltie Dry Bag can even back up as a float if you need it in the water.
