- Used for 3 years Review by Gerry
OverallI bought the grey one in medium size over 3 years ago.
I have used it many, many times in all sorts of weather and terrain.
This is a great bag, has never let me down, stuff is always dry. When not in use can be rolled up and takes up less room than a "dry" bag. I also have a small sports car, with tiny boot, so I often bungee this on top of the boot on a rack, while my important kit goes in the boot. Has never let water/rain/mud in either! It is well made, feels "quality", is very adjustable and hard to fault design wise.
Packing is great with this, just chuck it in it's wide open top, and being lightweight, ideal for travel. What's more, I feel like a proper traveller with this, rather than a silly little case with wheels on.
If the even smaller one was still available I would buy that too as a carry on.
I really recommend this, hence a really rare 5 star review from me.

- Best bag for the money Review by JAW
OverallUsed this bag on trips from Oregon to Florida and Colorado. Not completely waterproof if fully submerged for a prolonged period. Otherwise large size permitting change of outfit, extra waders etc… Easy to carry and simple to load - just don't overload it or let your wife pack her things in it.

- Dry Creek Duffel Proves Itself in Alaska Review by Kambaku
OverallI guide in Alaska which translates into rowing a raft week after week down some of the most beautiful fishable rivers the Bristol Bay region. Everything has to go in dry bags, Alaska is wet, let me repeat Alaska is WET. Every day when loading my raft my stuff goes in first. I adjust my cargo net so gear stays off the bottom of the raft and out of the water but remember Alaska is wet. I have a number of dry bags that I've accumulated over the years and some server specific purposes. This year I added the Dry Creek Duffel to the mix. Day after day, week after week it sat in the bottom of my cargo net and most every day directly in the water that accumulated in the bottom of my raft. It never leaked! I love the wide mouth and easy access to what's inside. It's a great product in my opinion and it will be with me next season.

- Great bag Review by Skwala
OverallTook this bag on a 5 day float trip down the Smith. Rain, hail and general raft exposure. Everything was bone dry. Easy to access gear and much better than traditional dry bags that require you to unpack everything to find a single item. Absolutely no issues.

- Wish they would bring back the large size... Review by maccadon3000
OverallGreat product and bomb proof, but Simms has taken away the size options which is really frustrating. This is basically, what used to be, the medium sized Dry Creek Duffel. Unfortunately, it is not large enough for alot of people. So, please Simms, bring back the option of a larger size. Other than that, made with the same fantastic quality of everything else this company does.

- Keeps dry, but closed? Review by BK - Arlington, VA
OverallI bought this bag for a fishing trip to the NZ outback several years ago. The bag did an excllent job of keeping things dry - however, you have to be careful not to overfill. As the top is only rolled and latched, it will not stay closed if filled to its capacity. When my bag came through the airport, it had clearly opened (or been opened). I would have thought that zipping the closure, and then rolling would have given it not only water-proofness, but would have prevented loss of containment if the top came unrolled. The material is good and thick, I just don't understand that design element.

- Great Bag Review by KB - Houston, Tx
OverallThis is definitely my go to bag. Carries all of your gear and keeps it completely dry. Love that I can travel with it in the bed of the truck and on the boat and never worry about my gear getting wet.

- Most reliable Review by Luis - Santiago, Chile
OverallHello, I used this bag in Puerto Natales, Patagonia, Chile. It's one of the rainiest spots on the planet. We where exploring a lake and got stranded because of a storm. It rained for four days straight with 90 kilometer winds. This bag kept all my stuff dry. Most of the team had other gear and got all their stuff wet. Thanks for keeping me dry. Hope this helps others.

- Dry Creek Duffel Review by M. Tyree - Saskatoon, SK
OverallThis bag is great. I purchased two of these and have used them extensively this summer. I pack my clothes in one and my gear in another - throw them in the back of the truck and take off. They have survived some incredible rain storms and have never failed at keeping the contents dry as a bone.
