Bulletproof Solution To Water Protection

By Michael
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2018-10-02

I bought this in preparation for a hike up the Narrows in Zion National Park, which, as most know, is essentially walking in a river. I was very nervous about taking my 5DSr and 24-105 on the hike, so decided to use this. Once it arrived, I was feeling good about the water protection, but was unsure if the hassle of opening and closing it would preclude me from using my camera anyway. While I cannot speak to what happens upon total immersion (fortunately, I did not 'swim' at all on the hike), I ended up with an absolutely dry camera, plus all my other items I placed in the bag. Furthermore, I found in practice that the opening and sealing of the bag is actually a very quick procedure once you get that hang of it. I now feel like I have a totally safe bag to take my camera on many excursions where I might have worried before (small boats, any water related activities, etc.) One last comment - it is also important to realize what this bag is not. It is not a typical camera bag, as it has no compartments of any kind inside. It is a just a bare, waterproof bag, configured as a pack. They make 3 sizes, and the 30L model I got is plenty big enough to put lots of stuff in, but you have to figure out how to organize the stuff inside the bag to be both safe and accessible for your needs. But if you want a way to comfortably carry gear around water without worrying about it getting wet (short of swimming) this bag deserves a look. I love mine.

Looking to take sony a1 and a7IV cameras + Sony 100-400mm GM and 16-35mm lens onboard zodiacs. They recommend waterproof bags just in case the bags go overboard. Wondering if 20L will accomodate these or if I need to go with 30L?
Asked by: Karen
I would go for the 30L. It would more comfortably fit both your camera bodies, both lenses and extra things like batteries, cables. filters etc.
