Product Test No.98: Coghlan's

Published in the August 2011 Issue August 2011

Getting wet can be half the fun of boating, but everything you've packed doesn't need to get drenched too. The storage under the seats of my boat tends to fill up quickly so I went in search of a waterproof bag that could be easily taken on and off my boat on a regular basis.

Over the years I've had a good experience with products from Coghlan's, so I decided to start my search there. On their site I came across their new Dry Bags that are made from lightweight Rip-Stop fabric, which packs down better than a traditional bulky dry bag with fully taped and waterproof seams.

With a suggested retail price of $9.38 for the 25L Lightweight Dry Bag, I decided to give it a try. It's not intended for situations where it will be submerged under water, which is fine by me. I figured if my boat is submerged I have bigger problems than keeping my towels dry.

After trying it out, I must say I was impressed by its durability and overall design. Plus at under $10, I can't complain about the price either. I tend to wash our towels on a regular basis so I don't like leaving them and other items on our boat at all times so this bag makes a lot of sense to me.
