If you’re half serious about water sports then you need a dry bag – here’s why…
To be honest I need to be outdoors for as much of my life as possible. I just never feel alive unless I’m outside. I dont mind getting wet either – whether it’s a short downpoor or being drenched to being fully emersed below the waterline…
Infact, the more extreme the conditions the more alive I feel and the better my life seems to work for me. It creates a sense of balance and an overriding peace that nothing else can give me as part of a daily fix.
“There’s only one condition that I attach to all of this though and that is that I get dry and warm as soon as possible afterwards – this means dry kit and a hot cuppa if possible…“
Being a fanatical browser of the internet and spending most of my hours researching for inspiration, my attention is mostly drawn to water environments and there’s always one item of kit that unites hard-core water dwelling athletes or those who have to face an aquatic environment daily – that is a Dry Bag.
Although seemingly insignificant this item plays a major role with water users so bear with me…
Here’s the problem…
Whether you’re a long distance swimmer, professional surfer, kayaker, or just a leisure walker who walks their dog in the elements, Lets make the logical case for the humble dry bag, especially if you’re a bit more of a hardcore fanatic.
What are Dry Bags? I respect the fact that you may not have even heard of them.
Dry Bags are tough, durable bags made from waterproof materials. The major advantage of which is the ability to protect contents when being submerged in water – a major advantage if you need to keep your effects dry in all weathers and during waterborn activities.
