Check previous topics on this, eg see 'what kit do you carry on your SIB' linked in the sticky above. Pelicase for the important stuff, drybag for clothes, food etc.

I have an underseat bag and a couple of dry bags. I clip the dry bags to the all around rope with karabiners. Wouldn't want to lose lunch in the chop.

One dry bag is a 30l draper that I got for a tenner

the other is a 30l cheap chinease ebay special that I got for 3.

Heavy/vaulable stuff in the Draper, Jumpers etc in the cheapo.

My under seat is a sunsport that I got for 30 in the middle of winter. Nice foam seat cushion too.

Hi SIBer the underseat bag looks good for storage and i believe they are detachable from the seat cushion,I have been looking at Bow bags on ebay from the USA.
bartiny,your waterproof toolbox looks good too,is that better than a pelicase?just want something completely waterproof for phones cameras radios etc

In our SR4, I have a plastic former olive storage barrel. Grey , tough and water tight. It's strapped to the seat back. Spot on. :-)

Sorry for the late reply, I have been getting ready for a few days camping and sibbing at Shell Island

I do not know enough about Pelicases except that they are pricey.

My 28" Fat Max is Very strong, Light weight, Waterproof, and I think the 28" one will have more than enough room for your equipment.
