Eventually, every canoe tips. And the unpleasantness of this eventuality is inversely related to how much you prepared for it. Meaning, stuff all your clothing and bedding in dry bags—and make ‘em good ones. SealLine’s 70L Pro duffel not only keeps your things dry, but has the added advantage of quick, easy entry. Unlike classic drybags, which involve extensive folding, clipping, and digging, the PRO unzips on the long end, so you can sift through the contents without effort. The carry handles double as backpack straps for portaging and dayhikes from camp. Numerous other features and thoughtful touches—characteristic of SealLine—make this the waterproof bag by which all others are measured.
