Review

I usually compartmentalise my gear into dry bags, especially my electronics. So why did I go for the OEX 2L dry bag?

 

Why the OEX 2L dry bag?

These little dry bags were so cheap in Go Outdoors, I think they were going for £5 for a set of 3. They came seam taped and are made of a coated nylon fabric for extra waterproofing.

 

How well do they work?

After a couple of years and over 600 miles of hiking, using them to carry various different items from clothing to electronics they haven’t done too badly for the price. Although, if you look at the gallery photos they’re already on their last legs. While they’re super cheap, they definitely haven’t lasted as long as my 20L Sea to Summit dry bag which I bought about 4 years ago. That said, they’ve been with me on countless hikes in Wales and on the Welsh 3,000s, as well as on the Rota Vicentina and many other shorter trips.

 

Value for money

At this price, they’re the perfect dry bag for those just starting out and they’ll see you through a bunch of hikes, but they won’t last as long as some, so expect to be switching these out pretty soon depending on what you put in them.
