NRS High Roll Duffel Dry Bag

by NRS

The NRS High Roll Duffel Dry Bags deliver the same rugged dependability as the legendary Bill's Bags, but in a duffel-style design that makes packing your gear, and finding it later, easy. The heavy-duty 21 oz PVC/polyester construction can handle the wear and tear of any rugged outdoor adventure. The fold-down StormStrip™ closure system seals water out of the duffel. Fold (rather than roll) from the top, at least three times, then hook the aluminum fasteners through webbing loops on the sides of the bag. Cinch down to add extra pressure on the seal for the driest possible protection. Webbing chains offer ample attachment points to secure other items to the bag.

  • Material Description: 21 oz. PVC

Additional Attributes

  • Prices starting from $109.95 for the 35L size
  • Available in 35L, 70L & 105L sizes
