Gear Check: Seal Line Compression Dry Sack

Here's a quick review of a dry bag that's suitable for kayak fishing.

Gear Check: Seal Line Compression Dry Sack

Seal Line Compression Dry Sack

Of the many useful items used when kayak fishing a dry bag of some sort is a must-have.

Now there are a ton of choices out there and the design on most is very effective and simplistic.

Almost any bag out there will get the job done but, every once and a while there is something that catches your attention.

That’s the case for the Seal Line Compression Dry Sack.


The first thing I noticed was how large this bag was — the 20 liters of storage allowed me to add a full rain suit, a change of clothes and a pair of shoes with room to spare.


Next, the stitching and sealed seams throughout the bag appear that they will last a very long time. The bag has the traditional ridged top seal with clips that are designed to be rolled down and then clipped to secure your items inside. But that is not where this bag stops.

Additionally, there is a purge seal that allows air to escape as you roll down the top of the bag further adding to its compactness.

The Seal Line Dry sack gets better still. Included is a rain guard-style cover for the top and bottom that integrates straps that can be used for carrying on your shoulder or a point of securing or tying down during transport.

I cannot say enough about this bag. Sometimes you don’t realize how great something so simple can be until it is right in front of you and this does just that. Seriously impressive and is now my all-time favorite dry bag.


PROS

  • Size of bag
  • Bright color with reflective straps for visibility
  • Purge air valve
  • Straps for carrying
  • Overall quality of bag is excellent

CONS

  • None, really.
