SealLine See Dry Bag

Wondering which of your five identical dry bags holds the dry clothes or snack?

20 L Dry Bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The 20 L Dry bag is big enough for 1 or 2 man tents. The material is a little sticky but not a huge deal. The seal is excellent which is what counts.

Good see thru bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is my first See bag from Sealline. I have a couple Bajas and Nimbus bags and they all work great. Only reason this didn't get a 5 star review is that it's somewhat "sticky". It's a really durable, thick material, but is sticks to itself and other items or bags when packed in my kayak. Just not as smooth and easy to pack as other bags. Not a deal breaker, just something to consider if you plan to pack this into a tight area or against other items. Other than that, it's a great bag and I do like that I can see thru it.

Still the Absolute Best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Well, I logged in to write a review for these, but it looks like I already have. What can I say, I love these. I have two 5L bags that I use almost every weekend (one for food and one for clothes) and one 10L that only gets used rarely. They're incredibly durable and being able to see into the bag is a huge perk, especially when your slimed with mud and don't want to filthify the inside of your dry bag just to snag a Snickers or a pair of dry socks. I've gotten a lot of comments on them on trips so I bought a handful of 5L bags to give as gifts and they're always a huge hit. For sizing reference, you can easily fit 6 beers in the 10L and still have some room for ice.

Keep your electronics safe

I use this quite a bit on family river trips. Keys, phone, and any important items that I want to keep dry and safe go in this bag.

Keeps the dry, dry

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used Sealline bags quite a bit and really like the See Bag. It does a great job at keeping anything you put in it very dry. Alternate use: throw in some ice and your favorite beverage for a mid-trip refreshment.

Keeps the gadgets dry

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got this for peace of mind to keep my DSLR and phone and other odds and ends dry. Being from Colorado you never know when rain can strike or get a leaky bladder in your backpack.

Well made and keeps things dry

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I went with the clear so you could tell what was in each bag. Thicker material than I would have thought which will be nice for durability.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this to replace my last one (the exact same product) because it got punctured by a pencil. Lame. It lasted me about three or so years and was finally starting to show some wear and tear before I stabbed it and rendered it basically useless. I love this bag. Highly recommend.

See your Gear!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love dry bags in general. They're just so damn functional and keep your necessities dry in the wettest environments. But the fact that this one is clear and allows you to see all of your gear inside, puts it a head above the rest. Highly reccomended!

Pretty solid

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you're looking for a nice durable dry bag, this will definitely do the trick. It's a nice thick bag, and although it's pretty stiff it does the job.


    Works great! It's a little stiff, but that's expected. It's really nice to be able to see though the bag and know where to find what you need rather than empty everything out into my boat.

    Where are these made?

    Made in USA. U.S. and imported parts

    Keep it dry!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use this bag to keep my electronics dry while backpacking in rainy places. The 10 L fits my SLR camera (in it's case), my phone, my iPod, with plenty of room to spare. I particularly like that it's a clear bag so I can see what's going on inside while the bag is sealed.


    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I ordered this bag and the Kodiak. Sent this back AND ordered another Kodiak. I thought the vinyl was too stiff for my use.

    I'm looking for a bag to keep a change of clothes in my kayak. Space is a premium.

    I'd go with the 20L or 30L either should have plenty of room and be able to pack down small as long as you are just taking a simple change of clothes.

    I would go with the Sealline Kodiak Tapered Dry Bag. It is made from 220D Cordura (very durable), has a purge valve allowing the bag to get smaller instead of fighting the extra air inside the bag (which takes up valuable space), and the tapered shape makes it easier to fit into the nose or stern of the kayak. It comes in 20L, 35L Long, and 35L Wide sizes.

    Greetings, Need a large dry bag to hold...

    Greetings, Need a large dry bag to hold an AED (defibrillator) & Med Kit. Do you think the 30L bag is sufficient?

    The 30L bag should be plenty big enough for both.

    Practical and Reliable

      I purchased the 20L See Dry Bag prior to my recent Boundary Waters canoe trip because I wanted to keep certain items easily accessible while not exposing them to risk to potential water damage.

      I ended up keeping some food, my walkie talkie, my DSLR camera, my Patagonia Nano Puff and few miscellaneous smaller items in the See Dry Bag and clipped into the canoe. It was easy to find what I was searching for and the bag didn't let any water in. On portages, I would simply open up my portage pack and slip this bag in.

      Durable and dry

        This bag is great, it survived a camping/rafting trip in the Alaskan backcountry and kept water out of the stuff I put inside. The plastic is thick and durable, and it's nice to see what you have in there. It is a thick bag, however, so if you have rigid stuff inside it can be hard to compact down and close. Worked great as a food container. It will develop condensation, but it dried out quickly when opened.

        Good Day Bag

          I used a 5L See Dry Bag from SealLine for the few things I wanted easy access to on a river trap. It's helpful to be able to see through the bag to find what you're after quickly. With the 5 L size I could fit my extra layers (midweight fleece and lightweight fleece vest) and sunblock. I'd highly recommend the 5L or 10L size for this purpose. The bag seems well made (and kept my stuff dry) though I would not call it the most durable dry bag out there by any means. This bag fit the bill for my "day bag" needs perfectly, and at a reasonable price.


          Do you think the 5Lis too big to fit a mini iPad with an otter box, "defender"?

          i know its a little late to reply but i think that the "map sleeve" would be a perfect fit for what you are needing. just my 2 cents.

          Great bag

            It's solid, the top that you roll up to close it is a bit sticky, which is actually great for keeping out the water.
            Best part: I can see all my stuff and it really is waterproof
            Worst thing: The plastic is a little stiffer than other bags
