N.O.L.S. Tests Our Dry Bags In A Big Way

By Roberta of Peak Sports, Corvallis, OR

On a NOLS river course, the students are usually pretty adept at rowing an oar rig and captaining paddle rafts by day 11 on the river. We had just put in on the Gates of Ladore on the Green River and a student was rowing the gear raft as we approached Winnie's Rock. The instructor stepped in too late and the perfect wrap occurred with the inside of the boat facing upstream. About two inches of the raft was above the water line. All of the personal gear was in 15 jack medium outfitter bags, completely submerged for 8 hours! When the boat was finally free of that rock the only gear lost or wet happened when the ammo can lids were ripped off from the force of the water. Everything in the Jacks Bags were toasty dry.

Jack's Note
This is the best story I have ever heard about how well our dry bags work. 15 out of 15 all dry after being submerged for 8 hours! How good does a dry bag have to be? If you are shivering on the beach it was not good enough.
