Best foul weather bag anyone makes.,
October 17, 2013
By: Kootfish
from Libby, Montana
"Okay, we took the three bags to Mongolia. Each of us used them for our daily raft transfer bags. We did not pack our bags into the gear rafts, and hoped that the camp staff would be easy on them. Didn't matter at all. Nothing got wet inside the bags, no handles or straps ripped off, no holes poked into them, and we got some great rub marks to remind us of the incredible trip we shared on the Delger River."

Most Versatile Waterproof Bag,
April 25, 2013
By: Kootfish
from Libby, Montana
"I bought three of these bags for my fishing buddies and for me as a surprise for our planned trip to Mongolia this coming August. We got our first test on Wyoming's North Platte two weeks ago. 40-mph upstream winds (ambient was 24F) threw water all over the drift boat as we drug the boat down river wading against the wind. Ice formed on everything, including the outside of the bags. Nothing wet inside. Cinch straps were still easy to work with frozen fingers after busting off the ice. Thank goodness we had a warm home to go to, but we now know that those bags are not only waterproof, but ice-bullet proof. Mongolia, here we come!"

Great Canoe Bag,

"After a rather wet day on the Gander River I began looking for a good bag to throw in the bottom of a boat to hold all my gear and keep it dry. This is it. Works great."

Great duffel for the boat,
September 20, 2012
By: Steelychick
"I took this bag on a striper fly-fishing trip in Maine. It kept an extra coat and rain gear dry throughout my days on the water. Although I think the bag could additionally benefit from an exterior zip pocket for smaller must-get-to-easily items, it's a great and flexible bag. I look forward to testing it on other trips to in the future!"
