So, “What are the advantages of using a dry bag?” we hear you ask!If you are a water sports practitioner, then this blog is for you! Whether you’re a commercial diver, professional surfer, amateur kayaker, or just out for a walk in the elements, we are going to explain why you absolutely must have a Dry Bag on your water-related adventures. In fact, a Dry Bag is a must-have for the water-addicted, and here’s why: First of all, what are Dry Bags? Well, they are tough, reliable bags made from durable waterproof materials with the ability to protect anything that is submerged in water. From your phone to your clothes, you will be protected from the elements during any adventure. Ultradry Bags even backs up as a float if you need it in the water. Now that we have covered the basic of a Dry Bag, it’s time to dive into its advantages.
The safer alternativeThe first advantage is that it allows you to bring your phone with you. No matter what the elements or where you are: kayaking down river, walking in the rain, climbing Mt. Everest – A Dry Bag is an essential that you simply can’t do without. Why? Because you never know what will happen during your day out or expedition (hopefully, you will be home without any problem!), but if something goes wrong, you need to be able to call for rescue. This is why waterproof Dry Bags are absolute fundamental part of your equipment. They allow you to be safer out there and give peace of mind to anyone who may be waiting for you or who may have to rescue you, meaning you can make that 999 call if you have to.
Dry food = edible foodIf you practice a sport, like extreme swimming, where you are in the deep blue for hours, you will need to sustain your energy throughout. How can you do that if your food is soggy, or worse you didn’t take any in the first place because you didn’t think you could keep it dry? And no, a Tupperware won’t help. To be able to drink and eat during your activity, you will need a quality, reliable, durable waterproof Dry Bag. Being able to store food in a water-protected bag or waterproof pouch is something every water sports enthusiast will tell you is a high priority – probably 2nd after keeping their phone and equipment dry. No one wants to bite into a saturated sandwich or a mushy protein bar during a swim. Dry bags allow you to keep your food and drink completely water-free and, therefore, are a great way to allow you to extend your training or adventure in a safer way. Dry food = edible food. Edible food = sustained energy for you to keep going.
Your best friend to protect clothes & equipmentNobody, and we mean NOBODY, wants moist clothes, damp with leaked water that could have been avoided. Or worse, your clothes or equipment fall overboard and are completely submerged. You know when you grab your spare clothes thinking about how warm and dry you’re going to be – not crying in despair because they’re sopping wet, cold and useless. If you practice surf in a very crowded area, for instance, your clothes might not even be where you left them when you exit the water – anything left out is a target for thieves. But, an Ultradry waterproof bag can be your best friend when it comes to protecting your clothes. Putting clothes or equipment into the dry bag is extremely easy and ensures protection all day long. Of course, there are many other benefits and advantages of using dry bags while practising your favourite water sport. We suggest you try them for different use and decide which one is the best for you.
