The River Trek drybag is available in sizes from 50l all the way up to 125l. The one we have here is the 100l version. 100l hits the sweet spot for carrying all of of my winter paddling gear without overloading the bag.

Chilli and Jet Grey

In the photos here the bag contains all of the gear you would expect to use on the river for one day.

Top haul loop and padded straps

The bag features a roll down opening that clips into the two straps that are located on each side of the bag or the roll down top can be fastened other like a traditional dry bag closure.

Daisy chain

The dry bag is designed to be carried like a rucksack or like a suitcase.

Side carry handle

Each side of the bag also incorporates a carry handle and daisy chain for attaching additional gear to the outside.

Loads of room

The base is often the are that gets the hammer. This one is tough.

All of the QR clips and buckles are made from high quality plastic.

RRP on this 100l version is just over £100 but can be found for way less than that.
