Large Waterproof Bag/Holdall

Can anyone recomend a large waterproof holdall/bag for use on the Priory Bay BBQ.

Would like cheap and something that will float if I need to swim ashore with all my stuff.

Cheers in advance Nick R.

I have a couple of these and they are brilliant.

Or something like this looks even better:

Nick,

We don't sell them, but take a look at Ortlieb products. I was impressed when I looked at them.

Not the cheapest but should last.

Try these people: http://www.traveldri-plus.co.uk/rucksacks.html

They have a good range, from cheap to expensive. I bought a 50 litre Ortlieb Rack-Pack from them and it's a really good bit of kit.

Update

I ordered a couple of dry bags off the site Rich (Laser) recomended.

A 60 litre for a drysuit and the mega 150 litre. Both seem to be of the same quality as the crewsaver ones I have. The material is pretty heavy duty.

In the large one I've managed to pack a sleeping bag, sleeping mat, folding camp chair and pillow so far with loads of space left to put the tent and many other things.

Below is a piccie of the large bag. For some idea of size the wheel next to it is a 13 inch one from my trailer.

Apologies for quality it was on my camera phone.
