For boaters, especially Pacific Northwest sailboat racers in the fall, sometimes you just need to know your stuff is going to be dry on deck. The Greenwater 65L Waterproof Deck Bag from Mustang Survival is a 3,967-cubic-inch, completely watertight “drysuit in the form of a gear bag.” Touted as absolutely watertight, this bag is made with 420 denier Hypalon shell material (similar to inflatable dinghy fabric) and the same Aquaseal zipper used in Mustang’s dry suits.
The bag is also loaded with carry handles integrated on all four sides as well as two on top. Also, built-in, tie-down loops are sewn along the entire side of the bag. These loops make it easier to secure the bag somewhere on deck with a well-placed bowline. The removable and adjustable shoulder strap will be appreciated when the bag is full and heavy. The bag features a no-nonsense design with one large main compartment.
Everything about the Greenwater 65L Waterproof Deck Bag is heavy duty and serious enough for rough waters and sideways rain. Even if the weather is fair, it’s nice to know whatever is in your bag is going to be drier than you are. The bag is currently $289.95 at fisheriessupply.com
