No, the outside zippered pocket is not waterproof, only splash-proof. For items you do not want to get wet, be sure to put it inside the dry bag, not in the outside zippered pocket.
Do not put any electronics in the outside zippered pocket. This additional storage is only meant to store for easy grab and go items that are okay to get wet, such as non-electronic keys, sunglasses, cards, etc. We also include a card with every order that reminds you not to store electronics in the outside zippered pocket.
Yes! Our dry bags are meant to float and stay atop of water so you'll never lose sight of your gear during kayak flips, etc. When you roll the top of your dry bag down, there should be a little bit of air in it giving it a "inflated" type of feel so it will always float to the surface if lost.
However, because our dry bags are meant to float, they are not fully submersible and should never be submerged underwater for longer than 5-10 seconds.
In order to use your dry bag properly, here are a few steps!
- Roll the top of the bag down 3-4 times
- Buckle the sides up so that you sort of made a “handle” for your bag
- Be sure to leave some air in the bag, as this is what keeps your gear buoyant in water and dry! ***It's important to note that our dry bags are not intended to be submerged underwater for more than a few seconds at a time, as our bags are designed to be buoyant and float above the water.
All of our dry bags are ranked at an IPX-6, being that our dry bags are protected against high pressure water streams from any angle.
