We Say – I used these bags to keep my books, electrics and cameras dry during a 3 week backpacking trip recently. It rained a fair bit andÂ the atmosphere in the tent was quite damp at times, so these bags helped a lot to keep the moisture out. The tops are easy to roll down and secure, they vary in size and can hold my SLR camera and the average A5 size book, and they keep things completely watertight.
I found the colour coding useful; it let me know exactly where things were (my books were in blue, electrics in red and cameras in yellow) when things got in a bit of a mess inside the tent (as they do, frequently, on backpacking tours).
I’ll definately use them again on future backpacking tours, and also when I go out in my canoe, to keep my valuables safe, dry and easy to locate.
