All About Dry Bags – Here’s Why You Should Read Reviews Before Buying Them

If you are about to buy dry bags, you should know that there are many brands out there that offer the same type of product. However, just like anything else, they are not created alike. And there are brands that are better than others. Of course, if you are like most people, you want to have your money in the right place by buying the better products. But how do you find these better products?

Well, that is easy. You do it by reading the different reviews on the different dry bags in the market. If you would only search for “dry bag reviews” on Google or any other search engine, you will see the many different brands out there that have made it to the top ten list of different websites. Examples of these products that are in the top ten lists include Big River, SealLine, and Sea to Summit.

To find the best product for you, what you want to do is to read the different reviews. Don’t be content with just looking at the average star ratings. Read what customers are saying about. Is it good, bad or ugly?  Of course, if a product has an average star rating of at least four stars, you can expect for the product to be great, at least to the majority of its buyers. Great, in this case, means that the bag is totally waterproof, and not even the slightest hint of moisture can be seen or felt after sleeping the night outdoors.
But more than the quality of the experience, you will want to read the reviews to know how other people are using it. You might just be surprised, but there are people who use these waterproof bags to store just about anything during their trips, including food and Kindle readers and other electronics.
How much do dry bags cost? Well, that depends on the size of the bag. The smallest item with the smallest capacity of one liter is around ten dollars. While bags that can accommodate  20 liters cost around $65. If that sounds pricey, it is, especially when you consider that the price of ordinary can be as low as $20. However, you do get what you pay for. And what you get are totally waterproof bags that you can store just about anything in.

The thing about dry bags is that while they can keep moisture and water out on land, they are not meant to be submersible in water. If you are going on a rafting trip, use a river bag, which is made of thicker material, and is made to protect your most valuable items when it’s submerged in water.

Are dry bags safe to clean inside a washing machine? We look at the Q&A section on Amazon and found out that it is. But again, this depends on the brand. The brand we were looking at was Sea to Summit.
