keeping stuff dry

I'm after two or three waterproof holdalls, and wondered what folks found worked best on a Rib.

Any advice very welcome.

Thanks

These are the absolute mutts nuts. I bought one to try it, got some sand in it on Bembridge beach and filled it with water to flush it. Not even a drop leaked out til it fell over.

Nos4r2, I guess you are talking about Ortlieb rather then Exped?
I was thinking of getting the Ortlieb Packsac Drybag L as XL would be too big for my small boat.

Would definitely recommend Ortlieb, having tried a cheaper make which didn't stand up to much shoving in and out of hatches!

Also recommend ones with the rucksack-style shoulder straps if you are buying large bags for overnight clothes, etc as much easier to carry when trekking up the hill to the hotel! I also have a natty little hand held one which I use as my 'boat handbag' but I guess the fellas won't be needing one of those!

This is what we use: http://www.sailgb.com/p/ortlieb_xplorer_kit_bag/

Yes Didn't notice the others below it. I found mine at a local surplus store.

Many thanks Louise, danilo & nos4r2 - these all look the business, and exactly what I'm after.

Now just got to find a way of stopping the kids depositing the dry contents on the wet deck!

I have a couple of Compass 24 dry bags (see top item on http://www.compass24.com/watersports...aterproof+Bags). They are very good quality, especially for the price. They also do one in a traditional holdall style, which I have not seen anywhere else.

Thought I'd post a link to the 'handbag-style' one as it could be used as a grab bag (and just in case any lady boaters are interested!): http://www.wiggle.co.uk/ProductDetai...20Travel%20Bag
I also noticed that www.wiggle.co.uk offer a wide range of Ortlieb bags - just about every shape and size you could ever need!
