Everything you need for a great day on the river can fit in this bag and stay dry. Even better not many people can figure out how to open it so your snacks are safe. This bag fits perfect in little boats too.

You can't go wrong with any of the watershed drybags, they are tough, come in a variety of sizes and colors, and most importantly they are the driest bags on the market. I specifically use my ocoee drybag for a camera case for my DSLR camera, I use the watershed liner (http://www.coloradokayak.com/Watershed-Ocoee-Duffel-Liner?sc=26&category=14482) and it works perfectly to protect my camera on the gnarliest of runs. They also work great for a day bag for day trips, keeping some things accessible on overnight rafting of kayaking trips, or just protecting your gear from rain on side hikes. Overall this is the drybag use to protect your gear!

If you want your gear to stay dry, watershed bags are the only option. The ziploc closure system plus the normal rolling puts them many steps ahead of there competition. The fabric is probably the most durable as well. I was skeptical to move camera equipment from hard storage, but these bags, with the proper padding are just as dry and protected if not more so then the various boxes out there. Much easier to pack and transport as well. The weight is probably the only drawback over other dry bags especially when you have to carry your boat for long distances.

This is a great bag for a camera. Get something to pad it inside and you have a really easy camera bag. It's even small enough to strap to the waterbottle holder on the center beam in front of your seat. The watershed bags are so dry, and very durable too.

Bone dry. Not a "moist bag", which is what I refer to the roll top bags as. If you have electronics, this is the only way to go. The Pelican case is nice for conservative rivers, but it is not nearly as dry as the Watershed bag.

I have submerged overnight both a pelican case and this bag. This bag stayed perfectly dry. The pelican case leaked a little. I trust this bag and have heard about cameras staying dry after spending two days behind a waterfall getting continuously pounded. Props to watershed.
My only complaint is I wish it came in different smaller sizes. My camera takes up only about 1/3 of the bag. The flip side is it collapses fairly well once you get the air out.
The Watershed Ocoee Drybag is a must have if you have equipment that needs to stay dry. The Ocoee Duffel is the perfect size for a day bag on the river or lake. Pack all your camp gear away and use the Ocoee to access your: camera, sunscreen, rain coat and extra layers. The Ocoee Dry Duffel can also be paired with the Ocoee Liner for extra padding if you are handling movie cameras or other fragile items.

Keep your gear dry even when submerged! Easy-to-use ZipDry® Seal presses shut like a freezer bag.
840 denier fabric with a heavy matte PU finish for abrasion resistance and overall strength.

Wide mouth for easy access.
If you transport fragile equipment in your duffel, a liner is a must: constructed of a 200 denier nylon outer shell, minicell foam cushioning, and an interior fleece lining, will reliably protect your gear.
