DCF 2.0 Dry Bag – Tall 8L – 19g
20K waterproof. UK made. 15x stronger than steel.
(Also available in extra tough 2.92oz DCF for an extra 30g).
I lash these tall, slim drybags to the sides and base of my pack, giving me 8L of extra storage space each and loads of convenience when setting up and breaking camp.
Most hikers store their tent deep in their rucksack. Packing it deep in the rucksack leaves them and their gear exposed to the elements while they pack, with the big muddy tent dirtying their gear.
I pack fully and get ready to hike in the comfort of my tent, then quickly pack it into this dry bag, lash that to my pack, et voila: ready to hike, completely dry! Evening? The tent's easy to find, is pitched without opening my pack, and I can fully unpack in its shelter. Who'd have thought one small dry bag could make such a difference?
Note: don't store moisture sensitive items in these on the outside of your pack – e.g. a down sleeping bag. A big muddy tent on the other hand is no problem.

I make my 2.0 dry bags from 1oz DCF, a very special fabric made from Dyneema® fiber – an incredibly strong fiber that is 15X stronger than steel. Not only is it many times lighter than other fabrics, it is also several times stronger, and up to 10X more waterproof.
Durability – important!
The 1oz fabric is strong stuff, typically used in tent groundsheets, however the outside of your pack is subject to extreme abrasion. As a result, it is likely you'll get cuts and holes. Be careful not to grind it along the ground or catch it on barbed wire, thorns etc, you could damage it. Any cuts can easily be repaired with repair tape (stick it to the inside). I would personally go for the heavier duty 2.92oz DCF version, available for 49g.
By buying you accept FULL responsibility for any damage or loss of you gear that could result from use of this product, especially when used on the outside of your pack.
