The Hydraulic™ Dry Bag is the burliest dry bag we make. It is designed for demanding conditions where rough and tough treatment is to be expected. The 600D heavy duty abrasion resistant TPU laminated fabric and RF welded construction throughout give the Hydraulic its superior strength. The interlocking non-wicking roll-top makes it easier to close the large format closure, and RF welded lash loops provide secure attachment points. An oval base means the dry bag won’t roll away when you set it down. All models use our Field Repair Buckles, which can be replaced in seconds using a Philips screwdriver.
ARE HYDRAULIC DRY BAGS...?
Suitable for paddle sports? Absolutely. The tough TPU laminate is perfectly suited to watersports use, even in environments where sharp/abrasive surfaces may be present.
Waterproof? The fabric is more than adequately waterproof (10,000 mm hydrostatic head) – just avoid submersion, as water can seep through the roll-top closure of any dry bag.
Suitable for canyoneering? Yes and no. Canyoneering is extremely hard on equipment – a Hydraulic Dry Bag is unlikely to survive more than a couple of seasons without needing to be retired.
