    Dry Pak waterproof duffel (Large)

    I wanted something to use for the vstrom as the twisted throttle dry spec bag is just a little too wide and with a jacket and back armor it pushes too much against my back.

    So, I thought I'd try this link out that I've been saving for a couple years and see if the bag was any good. Enter the Dry Pak bag.

    This bag is about $50 delivered which is an incredible deal given the type and quality of the bag. It's the same type of waterproof vinyl construction of all the other higher-priced bags.

    The dimensions of the bag (large) are 24x12x12. But, a couple things that really set this one apart are:

    1 - The bottom is formed and semi-rigid and has extra protection so it should ensure a long life.
    2 - The opening on this bag is huge - most roll-top bags have narrow openings and sometimes makes it a pain to pack, you could probably pack one of these bags inside another due to how large it opens up.

    If you want a high quality bag but at a discount price, this is the one. The amazon picture shows it to look like a brushed cotton material but in person it's actually all shiny black.

    Some additional photos.

    You'll see how large the opening is comparing it to the Twisted Throttle Dry Spec 38 bag.

    Also, the formed base and there's also a drain hole for the base apparently. It's not for the bag as it's air tight. The base is just an extra welded section for protection.

    No problem, there are a thousand bags out there that will work just fine for what WE need one for so sometimes you just take a leap and get what seems to fit and it will work.
