Wet Weather Bags

Wet weather bags go inside the main compartment of your backpack to keep your gear dry. Anyone that has used military wet weather bags know that they are heavy, expensive, and non-repairable. These bags are heavy duty and contractor grade trash bags that lightweight, inexpensive, and recyclable. You can find similar bags at your local hardware store, but we wanted to offer them individually to keep you from having to buy an entire box when one bag will last you an entire season. Can be used to collect water, to inflate your backpack for river crossings, or worn as a poncho to keep dry or just for insulation. Most importantly, it will keep your gear dry.
