These Snap Closure Dry Bags come in a variety of sizes to give full protection from moisture and rain whilst hiking.

I don't recommend fully submerging them in water. Much heavier rubberised dry bags are recommended for that application. In my opinion, this is true of all DCF dry bags. They will definitely provide reasonable protection if you fall into a lake/river but not for swimming all day.

I prefer snap closures to clips as it affords a better seal and saves a tiny amount of weight. if you would prefer clips, get in touch before placing an order and I can make one up for you.

Made from seam taped  grey 1 Oz DCF and the closure is stiffened on both sides with CT 1000. All sizes have a boxed base.

Available in five sizes for various applications.

All volumes and measurements are with the top rolled three times and clipped shut.

This size is designed to be used outside your pack.

Also a good option for carrying a wet shelter. obviously not great for bush bashing.

A note about  approximate volume.

Measurements are as exact as I can make them but volume is generally understated. Volume is calculated using the products dimensions and a volume calculator. Approximate volume does not take into account that fabric items bulge when stuffed full, therefore "real world" volume will be slightly larger.

Love these!

You can’t do better that getting quality gear and supporting a small Aussie business at the same time. Top notch products! 👍

Great idea

Got the long bag and it does just what I needed it to - provides some more dry space in the side pocket of my 40l bag. Fit my pot, stove and gas canister in the bottom and then a couple of days worth of food, with snacks on top for easy access. Plenty of space - nice one. Will become a permanent part of the setup I'm sure. Genuinely surprised these aren't a standard size when it comes to dry bags - but no need for it to be with Orb doing a great job already. Great to deal with and got to me quicksmart. Will be recommending.

Orb Ultralight on the OT

Purchased some Orb Ultralight dry bags, pouches and food bag for the Overland Track. They were great. Kept everything dry and organised. Very well made and super light.
Was asked about my gear by many fellow hikers.
Thanks Pete, very responsive on email and fast delivery.
Now to add some more!

excellent dcf drybags

Been using Orb DCF drybags for some time now and just purchased a few different sizes. Very happy with them, especially the snap closure, so simple yet very effective. Highly recommend.

Really well made stuff!

Got the medium size to use as a ditty bag for hikes and I'm impressed by how light it is and how professionally made it is. Pete also made it with buckle clips instead of button snap clips as requested by email.
