The motto of the Boy Scouts of America is elegant in its simplicity: Be prepared.This statement informs every wise and experienced people in the air whether he (or she) ever a boy scout. Proper preparations for the expedition into the wilderness to climb a mountain, float down the river, or snowshoe through miles of cold meadows, and requires appropriate planning as to the alleged conditions and any possible changes.
Unforeseen problems that may arise during an expedition in the desert may take the form of weather changes, injuries, damage or loss of equipment or command of a traveler who was lost or lonely. The safety of wild animals requires planning all these scenarios and more, and it means relief for some tools, this means packaging materials, first aid, provision of abundant food and water, but it also means that the way to protect stocks and diet. You don’t need to go on a long hike with one pair of socks or neglected to bringing spare batteries for the flashlight when loosening, so do not neglect the protection of your critical equipment or food.
As the helmet protects the head, and good shoes to protect the ankle, a good dry bag can save a portion of your stocks as safe and dry. Dry layers of clothing can mean the difference between comfort and hypothermia, and dry drugs or equipment first aid can mean the difference between a quick return to health after an accident or illness, and the situation is very dangerous. If we are talking about dry food, it can mean the difference between comfort creations, and miserable, miserable, sometimes in the field.
Dry bags are critical for ride on water scooter, such as a kayak or canoe, and they are a good idea for any adventure on the water, even on a large boat, where the waves, spray and rain likely. But also a dry bag is a sensible choice for errant hikers, skiers or cyclists. When there is precipitation, as rain, sleet, or accidentally fall on this stream or lake, you’ll be delighted that those few liters of values stored space will be nice and dry.
Right choice dry bags
There are two main types of dry bags: they are designed to hold and designed to be worn in the style of a backpack. All dry bags have some kind of handle, strap or belt, but in many cases they are one slings in the form of a chest that is not comfortable for prolonged wearing; these Bags are suitable to the previous category, but, above all, must be hidden in the canoe, kayak, boat or another vessel of water. Bags plecakowe on the other hand can be worn for long periods of time with relative comfort, especially that most dry bags plecakowych has ramiączko as the waist. (Strap waist packs, as a rule, he carries the same or greater importance than the shoulder straps).
Although at first glance you might think that dry bag style backpack is always the best choice, as it gives the opportunity convenient to carry or to hide, often is not. Dry bags plecakowe typically more massive than their cylindrical counterparts that are more difficult to hide them in the hatch area (usually in the bulkhead in front) of the kayak or under the seat in a canoe. Dry bags also plecakowe more, even when they are empty and beaten for storage. However, this larger size may be required to move large, stubborn items like camping stove, and even laptops .
He said that, ultimately, the most important factor when it comes to choosing a dry bag, the amount of equipment you need to keep to dry. Logic dictates that the longer the expedition will require more and more stocks, and thus larger capacity. Most dry bags has a storage capacity of 20 to 30 liters (most of the internal packages for trekking averages about 60 gallons at full capacity), although some offer double and even triple place. This means that Your dry bag will probably not be the only transportation system of tools that you bring along on every trip that lasted longer than one night or a weekend. Make sure that Your dry bag works with other bags and equipment that you bring with you; it’s just one part of a larger system.
A few words on the care of dry bags

If Your dry bag will be moisture inside, or from the electrolyte bottle with water in case of spills or splashes that appear when they were open, or residual water after cleaning, will keep the liquid and prevent it from drying. This means that the chance for mold and mildew growth , and none of them is good news.
To keep the dry bag in good condition, you must regularly clean its interior with anti-bacterial nozzles and napkins. After cleaning always have to be careful drying, and hand drying towels, and then a longer exposure to the air.
