    Dry bags

    I'm currently using exped dry bags, which I'm very happy with. However I need more and exped are expensive for what they are so:
    What dry bags do you use?
    Where do you get them from?
    And how much do you pay?
    Cheers Dave

    Got mine off ebay. I am not taking them swimming so they do not nned to be so high quallity, and I use them mainly to organize my stuff, with the added bonus that they will probably keep my things dry trough a rain or sleet storm. So I just get the cheapest I can find on ebay, including shipping.

    I get my dry bags from different places but as already said I also have a large dry bag inside my bergan and use smaller ones for other stuff and place them inside the large dry bag oh also write on the smaller ones what is inside them, and a separate dry bag for my sleeping bag.

    I also go for one branded bag that lines the rucksack (name escapes me just now) but then use Mountain Warehouse drybags to neatly organise everything. I buy the bags when they have them on a BOGOF but must admit that I don't rely on them for their waterproof abilities as they just don't feel up to it.

    I use a heavy plastic bergen liner with cheapo dry sacks from a site called Banggood (strange site name but pretty good) - be warned though, being chinese website that waterproof in the description does always mean waterproof

    Hi Jefferson ... As mentioned by the other guys I use one huge sac

    in my Karrimore SF 60-100 ... Got it from local Army Surplus / supplies

    just happens to be an EXPED dry bag too ... Have several in different sizes

    for different jobs and the set in different colours for easy I.D. of contents ...

    A lot of my bags are all black ... not so easy to write on ...

    but I use a tag fastened into the final roll and clip ...

    I also have some Sea to Summit Ultra - Sil Dry sacs ...

    They feel quite flimsy next to the Exped bags but are made from siliconised

    cordura with an internal polyurethane fully taped coating ...

    They're as good as the Exped bags but don't have the handy bottom grab strap ...

    Have had them all for years so all durable but couldn't guess at prices of them !!!

    With things like this its all try it and see what suits you and the rest of your gear !!!

    Cheers Whistle

    I have two Sea To Summit 2l dry bags and a 4l dry-compression sack, bought from a local outdoor supply store. Pretty sure I paid about $12 each for the dry bags and $25 for the dry-compression sack. When the stores don't have it, Amazon is my best friend .
