Combining the convenience of a duffle bag with the water proof integrity of a dry bag, the Zip Duffle by SealLine is built with the same kind of zipper used on dry suits. The zipper runs diagonally across the top for quick access and has a vinyl flap for added protection. Webbing handles stay together with a Velcro grip, and convenient end handles make ship-to-shore transfer easy. Its low-profile shape is great for close quarters; the Zip Duffle 40 even fits through the back hatch of most kayaks. Also great for motorcycle touring and riding on outside luggage racks regardless of the weather. Available in two sizes.

An awesome water proof bag!!!!!I recently purchased the 40L zip duffle in blue. I like it a lot but was dissapointed when I first got it because the product deion said it had side handles. Apparently the side handles only come on the larger more expensive 75L model. Despite this let down I still like it a lot beter than my friends roll duffle because its a lot easier to get to my stuff in a hurry. The zipper on this bag is super convenient and even makes it more water proof than the bags with a roll top closure. This bad is rated to withstand being submerged for 30 minutes in 3 meters of water.

ACHTUNG! Be careful with the zipper!It's nice to have that zipper so you don't have to pull everything out of your drybag to get your camera or whatever out from the bottom. But be careful with the zipper! Day 2 of a 5 day river trip, I stuffed my gear into this bag. I actually over-stuffed it. I yanked hard on the zipper to try to get it to close, and pop! I split the zipper. It was a bummer. The zipper looks tough and hefty, but give it a little more consideration than I did. Don't overstuff the bag!

This dry bag worked great!I took this dry bag with me on a kayak trip in the Back Water Canoe Area in MN. This dry bag worked great. I strapped this bag onto the back of Kayak and paddled all day and in the evening when I opened it up to set up camp my stuff was still bone dry. I was also surprised to see how well this bag was made. It will certainly take a beating and keep on going. I would recommend this to anyone doing some recreational Kayaking.

You'll have no regrets with this bag!I used this type of bag for 5 seasons as a River Ranger for the US Fish & Wildlife Service in Alaska. We used several other waterproof bags as well but this turned one turned out to be the most functional. It costs a little more than some of the others but it's well worth it.
