Dry bags do one thing exceptionally well, and that’s combatting moisture. That’s why these types of bags are great for outdoor activities like hiking and fishing, where you’re exposed to everything from torrential downpours to roaring rivers.
Without a dry bag, you pose the risk of your supplies getting ruined—food, camera/video equipment, journals, clothes, you name it.
Filson Dry Bags for Hiking and Fishing
Filson’s dry bags are the creme de la creme when it comes to strong, water-resistant gear. Each bag below is made with waterproof, abrasion-resistant 840D nylon TPU. They’re able to withstand being fully submerged in water and still keep your gear as dry as a bale of hale.
Each of these products is available in a Flame (orange) color and an Olive color. Read more to get a breakdown of our favorite Filson dry bags!
MEDIUM DRY DUFFLE BAG
The Medium Dry Duffle is a great travel bag to store clothes and shoes in. Bring it with you on your next fly fishing trip or take it with you for a weekend in the big city. It measures 25 x 12.5 x 12.5in and has a nifty rolltop feature you can hardly notice.
LARGE DRY BAG
The Large Dry Bag is a solid grab-and-go bag to keep on the boat or in your truck bed. It measures 29-1/4in x 12-1/2in x 7-1/2in and holds up to 27L, which is ideal for holding tools, snacks, hoodies, extra pairs of socks, and more. The Large Dry can be carried by its side grab handle or by its removable adjustable shoulder strap.
The Dry Backpack is ideal for activities like hiking and kayaking. It features a single compartment that holds an impressive 28L. (there’s also a small zippered pocket on the front). It measures 20in x 12 ½in x 6 ½in and features padded shoulder straps and a padded back panel.
BACKPACK DRY BAG
For a more traditional bag, we recommend the Backpack Dry Bag. It measures 18-3/4in x 10-1/4in x 8-1/4in and holds up to 28L like the Dry Backpack. Our favorite features of this backpack are the extra pockets, the elastic shell loops on the hip belt (holds up to six 12-gauge shells), and the removable adjustable hip belt. This is an ideal bag for longer hiking trails and for hunting.
