Yes. Our Zip Duffle is made with a YKK zipper with injection-molded teeth, which is the same kind used in dry suits. It is indeed submersible (meets IP-67: 1 meter submersion for 30 minutes), and the zipper is protected from abrasion by a vinyl over-flap. This helps make the Zip Duffle our most protective product.
We recommend a minimum of 3 folds (aka “rolls”) to properly seal a roll-top dry pack or duffle. For an optimal seal:
All of the dimensions we list for our roll-top dry packs and duffles are the dimensions of the product when it has been properly sealed (tops rolled down three times and secured).
Our dry packs, dry daypacks, and duffles are sized volumetrically in liters. To help illustrate how those volumes translate to real world use, here are some general ideas of what fits in various sizes of our packs and duffles:
Here's an infographic to help you choose the right gear.
Our Pro Dry Pack has a height-adjustable suspension system that allows you to fine-tune adjustment to fit your torso length. Small = 17in, Medium = 19in, Large = 21in
To adjust the torso length of the Pro Dry Pack:
All of our Boundary and Black Canyon dry packs have removable shoulder straps. If you would like to remove the shoulder straps for transport (e.g., securing pack to the roof of a vehicle or in the bed of a truck, or to streamline the pack for airline travel), follow these steps:
In simplest terms, folding the top corners of the pack inward before closing it will help improve your visibility when looking over your shoulder. There’s one technique in particular that we’re fond of—we call it the “Burrito roll”:
SealLine products use three ratings to describe water resistance:
With such ratings, water resistance depends on the user carefully and properly sealing the closure. For roll-top closures, this means a minimum of three tight, wrinkle-free rolls. For zipper closures, the zipper must be completely and properly closed.
Polyurethane-coated (aka, PVC-free) dry packs and dry daypacks offer greater puncture and abrasion resistance than vinyl-coated packs, while also being lightweight. Also, PVC-free polyurethane coatings are less harmful to the environment than vinyl coatings.
Vinyl-coated dry packs and duffles are more economical and are resistant to punctures, tears, and mildew. They remain pliable at low temperatures and resist cracking.
Our exclusive DrySeal roll-top closure is easily identified by its two separate stiffening strips below the opening of a roll-top product. This makes it easier and more intuitive to achieve an optimal seal—for the first “roll” in closing the top, simply fold the top over between the two strips of material, then roll closed at least two more times.
This design also amplifies protection from the elements by adding an additional “virtual” roll.
Welded seams use radio frequencies (RF) to join two pieces of coated fabric together at the molecular level, effectively bonding them together as one. This strong, reliably waterproof construction method is far superior to sewn-and-taped seams.
With sewn-and-taped seams, two pieces of coated fabric are held together with thread and a piece of protective tape is placed over the threads and seam to provide water protection. A RF welded seam can withstand up to 2x more stress than a sewn-and-taped seam, resulting in a more protective and longer-lasting seam. This is why we use welded seams with all of our dry bags.
Regularly cleaning and maintaining your dry pack, dry daypack, or duffle will substantially increase its life.
After each use, clean and air-dry your dry pack, dry daypack, or duffle. Dirty packs or duffles should be washed with a soapy sponge and rinsed, allowing them to air dry. Store clean packs or duffles completely dry, inside out. Avoid any direct contact with insect repellents or solvents—if contact occurs, wash the pack or duffle thoroughly with a soapy sponge.
For vinyl-coated dry packs or duffles, such as our Boundary™ Dry Packs, Zip™ Duffle, or WideMouth™ Duffle, an occasional wipe down with a vinyl preservative, such as Armor All®, will help maintain the vinyl-coated pack or duffle’s suppleness. (Armor All® is an Armor All Products registered trademark.) Do not use a vinyl preservative for polyurethane-coated (aka, PVC-free) dry packs, dry daypacks, or duffles.
