Looking for reusable, water proof/resistant bag
« on: February 10, 2014, 02:05:35 PM »
I'm looking for a reusable bag, about the size of a 1-gallon freezer ziploc bag would be good. Currently I do use a 1-gallon ziploc and it works fine except they wear out pretty quickly and tear. Something that will last a while and be mostly rain resistant/proof. Something that will last a while. With a zipper maybe? I could probably go smaller than 1 gal depending on the particulars.

I plan to put a container in it that needs to mostly stay dry but *could* stand up to a little moisture. Worst-case: I won't be losing anything terribly valuable if I lost the whole thing but I am looking for a regular, long term solution that will more or less work. "It" will live outside and will be exposed to (but partially protected from) rain.

Any thoughts?

Sounds like you're looking for a dry bag.  Sea to Summit makes different sizes and waterproofness - from waterproofed sil-nylon to rubberized bags.

There are an abundance of watertight bags out there of that size sold by Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Cabela's, and REI.

aLoksak is what you're looking for.  I've taken my phone, wallet, and passport in one while diving in Mexico.  Everything remained dry.  I did double bag them but had no leakage in either layer.

Many, many sizes are available from wallet to long gun.
