    I can't search "dry bag" since the very descriptive terms are too short :(

    Rusky here has one that opens along the top/length, mounts down to the bike (seat or rack via straps) and probably does more.

    Who uses such beasts, and where can I get 'em!

    I liked Rusky's setup getting away without panniers, storing the fuel/water off pillion brackets, weighting his F like a backwards R ;)

    Autobahn have some cheap ones. 3 different sizes.
    I have a couple, and seem OK. Not the strongest, but not the most expensive.

    I am a Sea kayaker as well as a dirt tourer and I have 5 or 6 Sea to Summit ( brand Name ) Dry bags all purchased from one of my local kayak retailers for a quite reasonable sum. They themselves are not terribly abrasion resistant so I put them inside Andy Strapz panniers and a Carribee waterproof duffle bag ( that isn`t waterproof but is quite water resistant). As yet I have had 100 % success with this metod keeping things dry and dust free. Aids with packing as well as you can expel most of the air from a dry bag and then seal it so it`s very compact and the S 2 S dry bags also slide past each other quite well to aid pushing a bag into a space that it don`t want to fit. Hope this helps .

    Cheers Alan

    One small ash of cigarette and her sexy latex skirt was holed...

    I like canvas me. Not quite as waterproof but not bad ... nice and practical - heat and drybags - melt. Zorst, fires, cigs, magnifying glasses etc - not for the long haul.

    I use a dry bag strapped to the rack of my Dakar. I got it from Anaconda. They have a range of sizes in a durable see through material. Prices are reasonable.

    I`m planning on living out of mine for 2 1/2 weeks while I do a Simpson double crossing next year , the panniers will be chock full of fuel and water so the Carribee HAS TO hold everything else:evil.
