Looks like it will have to be the Musto bag! Ideally, I would like something I could wear as a back pack so that I could ride to the boat on my bycycle.

Any thoughts?

The shoulder strap on the Musto bag looks just the ticket.

Thanks.

The rucsac style shoulder straps are excellent, and save a lot of struggling up ramps and slipways with your hands full of luggage and gear.

Stockists aren't particularly easy to find - we ended up getting them from a cycle shop in Manchester - I think it was here: www.withingtoncycles.co.uk
These Ortliebs (as described by my other half, above) are great! I notice the Musto bag only has one shoulder strap which would be more awkward on a bike than the Ortlieb which is more like a true rucksack.

P.S. They're not difficult to find on the net - just put 'ortlieb x-plorer' into Google and there are plenty of stockists.

I use a brand name Ralftech

I really like the expedition line which is total waterproof and RED

1) http://www.ralftech.com/

2) Press the english flag (You know which on)

3) Press products, on the top left corner

4) Find and press "HEAVY DUTY" picture of men with inflatible.

5) Press "Expedition Tech Line"

I use the Expedition Red 5L to my wallet, phone and other personal items.
and then I have both the Expedition Red 90 and 120, for my and the crew clothing.

I have written a number on each bag. Then each crew or guest get their own bag. When I have new guest on board they will each recieve a bag with a dedicated number on it. Inside the bag there will be a Inflatible lift west, sailing clothes or survival suit, depending on the time of year, then the guest can change and put thier own clothes inside the bag, this way they will be nice and dry when we return.

I also get a nice price on them

I might be able to source some if your interested.

Rene
