“ Manufacturer: Scubapro / Type: Dry bags „
The Scubapro Dry bag is exactly what it says. It's a waterproof bag that can be sealed watertight allowing either dry things to be taken into wet situations, or your wet gear to be placed inside it to stop your car or however else you travel from getting soaked.
I primarily use this to store wet gear in. After a dive, snorkel or surf if you put your wetsuits straight in the boot of your car, the carpeting gets soaked with seawater and stinks when it dries out (I'll admit my car doesn't smell very nice). The 125 Litre capacity is quite large and means you can squeeze in a couple of wet wetsuits, boots, gloves, hoods, rash vest and pretty much everything you've been using.
The bag uses waterproof coil zippers which are good for keeping water in or out. On the main compartments there is a double zipper for even more security.
The zippers tags are not that strong gut you could put a padlock through them if you wanted to secure the bag, and it could easily be used as a standard bag for travelling.
When not in use, the bag folds (or better to roll) up nicely to be stored. Give it a rinse though or seawater will degrade the material and it won;t stay waterproof for ever. Being a lightweight (i.e. thin) material is does fold up quite small although I just tend to throw it in the loft as it is until I need to use it.
It has a shoulder strap or handles giving a choice of ways to carry the bag depending on how much weight you have in the bag. I like the options as the handles come in useful for throwing it about and you can stick it over your shoulder leaving your hands free to carry other equipment if you need to.
The bag is available in a range of sizes with this 125L being the largest. As I normally have quite a bit of wet gear it is the perfect size and means I don;t have to squeeze everything in. If you don;t have too much gear, the 75L bag is probably sufficient. If you have more gear, maybe look at the larger bags with wheels although these push the price up a lot.
The build quality is very good. The seams are well put together and haven;t developed any leaks with quite a bit of useage. The material is thin and lightweight, but appears to be good quality and resistant to scuffing and damage.
There doesn't seem to be a choice of colours available. It comes in black with white detailing including the scubapro logo. As its use is as a functional bag I don't think the style is too important and It looks good enough.
Selling for just over £50 it is quite expensive compared to the type of dry bag which is more like a sack where you roll the end up and seal it using clips, however as it's much easier to carry about I think it's worth the extra money.
