I made a dry bag last September from a kit but obviously never had a reason to use it–until we were scheduled for tubing. I, uh, happened to have another unsewn kit, this time in a Hiroshige print, so whipped it up so we each had a bag for snacks on the river.

The pros: Holds a tallboy beer and 3 different snacks, very appropriate print, is light and tough.

The cons: It’s not 100% waterproof. I think if I’d really rolled the top down tight and then didn’t touch it again, it would have done better. But considering Doc capsized and I hit the Bear River’s Great Wave, the few tablespoons of water I had to dump out of each wasn’t that bad.
