A light-weight, premium waterproofing answer.

Adventure and motorcycling are two worlds which have a lot in widespread. So it is smart that some merchandise designed for both may work nicely for the opposite. One of my favorite ‘Adventure’ bits of substances for motorcycling is the dry bag. As the title suggests, it’s a easy, sack-like waterproof bag that makes use of a roll-top closure to maintain your belongings dry. 

I like preserving a dry bag in my backpack as a result of it’s at all times good to have the safety of a water-resistant answer each time the necessity might arrive. This newest one comes from Australian Adventure firm Sea to Summit and the clear differentiator to the extra reasonably priced Dry Bags I’ve used previous to that is within the light-weight, versatile materials. Most decrease priced dry luggage are inbuilt a thick, rubberised materials, however the Big River bag from Sea to Summit makes use of a 420d ripstop Nylon materials that feels rather a lot lighter. There are a number of sizes obtainable, from 5 to 65 litres and I’ve been utilizing the 20-litre mannequin.

This one weighs simply 184gm and it’s straightforward to fold up and tuck away on the backside of my backpack if I don’t want it. The materials’s flexibility permits me to suit it in my most important 25-litre backpack or within the a lot smaller storage pocket of my hydration pack; this merely wasn’t potential with the thicker dry bag I used earlier than.

Hypalon loops enable it to be mounted to the bike.

I at all times use the dry bag inside a backpack, however it’s additionally potential to mount it to the backseat of a bike, or onto one other merchandise of baggage. You can do that through the use of the 4 tough-feeling hypalon loops which might be sewn into the edges of the baggage.

Rs 3,719 just isn’t a small quantity for a 20-litre drybag and there are significantly cheaper choices on the market. On the opposite hand, this bag is constructed of a high-quality materials that brings clear packaging and house administration benefits. At this worth, I’d have appreciated the inclusion of a one-way valve to simply purge trapped air from throughout the bag, however I’m in any other case proud of what it has to supply.
