Truly Submerge-proof Functional Tank Bag?

Been searching and coming up with a few, but they either aren't completely waterproof (map bag will leak for example) or they are basically a dry bag - not so functional.

Giant Loop Diablo Pro looks promising, but not quite it.

Anything I've missed? (something small for a klx250s)

I'd like to keep phone and camera inside (among other things) for quick and easy access. But worry they'll get destroyed on a failed river crossing. (Numerous crossings. :)

Thanks!

Thanks. I was exited about this bag, but looks a bit big for a smaller bike? Hard to judge when looking at it on a larger bike.

Anyone using it on a small bike?

And map pocket isn't waterproof, right? Was wanting to keep phone in there for navigation. Can't have everything I guess. :)

They have two bags the 3E and the 3S. Their web site specically says that the 3S is suitable fir a KLR. It is the smaller of the two bags.
They say that the map pocket is waterproof but if you want total protection just put your phone inside a waterproof housing inside the map pocket.

Hey

Much simpler approach available.....I use the wolfman small enduro tank bag....inside it I have a small 100% water tighr otter box for phone ect....works very well.

Suggest you just get a small otter or pelican box

Ride on

Ah cool. That's good to know. In the video it just looked like it was velcro'd together. I'll give it a closer look.

Yeah, that would work. But how functional is it? Though the clear top pelicans could work if setup right.

A tank bag made out of dry bag material with clear waterproof window on top (like Enduristan has on their Tornado dry bag for name card or something) all that could be zipped up would be perfect.

More difficult to make than it sounds I'd bet. Zippers gotta be a weak point.

Something that's truly submerge-proof, as opposed to rain-proof, with a zipper is going to be a very tall order. Waterproof zippers are both expensive and very finicky. The zipper on my SCUBA diving drysuit needs to be waxed after every use, cleaned meticulously to ensure there's no sand, dirt, etc. in it, constantly checked for wear, threads unravelling, etc... you get the picture. Even if someone makes a tankbag with a drysuit-style zipper on it, I wouldn't waste my money on it. Unless you're super-anal about maintaining it, it won't be submerge-proof a year from now.

I'm pretty sure there are guys using Kreiga bags as tank bags. I'll affirm they are absolutely waterproof. Kreiga also has lots of options for attachment.

Have you ever put your phone in a map pocket while riding in the sun? Don't ask me how I know!

Kriega has several waterproof options that fit on a tank - are you suggesting they are not waterproof?
