I have a Sagebrush Dry bag that's extremely durable and has a real waterproof zipper. It's been a great bag for several years. Made by good folks in Alaska.

If a man is wading alone in a river, with no women around to hear him, when he speaks is he still wrong?

I use a rectangular playmate cooler. The Stacker kind, about 6" tall. Plenty of room for reels/flies/other gear. Then I use a 25L SeaLine drybag for a spare fleece, keys, handgun, essential stuff. I just carry the drybag when Im in my watermaster and size down tackle to fit in my jacket. But the cooler for the driftboat is bombproof, cheap, and super waterproof. So....

I will also second the Sagebrush waterproof duffel. I have used this bag from Alaska to Brazil, in pontoon boats, rafts, drift boats and flats boats.
It is great to cary on airlines, pack into your car, or tied to the raft.
It is great. Mike

I picked up a William Joseph Mag Conduit gear/boat bag this summer. As my main concern was zipper failure, I decided to go with this bag for its "Zip No" technology. All of the pockets are magnetic closure. Was a little skeptical at first, but after checking one out at a FF show, I saw that the magnets provided a strong, secure seal, yet quick, easy access to all my gear. The bag has a built in rain cover and waterproof bottom. Excellent bag.

Where it all begins...

i've had the sage typhoon that others have mentioned for about 2 years
really nice
tons of room and great features
adjustable storage, so i can load 2 compartments with gear and have a camera/ camera gear in another with the effect sized foot print

- look for something that will allow you to adjust the storage layout
- rigid sides so you can use it as a large single area and still maintain shape
- allows the top to be unzipped but still protect… i usual leave mine unzipped on nice days, and just close the lid to protect from an errant splash/drip
- a "110% no water getting in spot" everything can get wet in heavy downpours where you are gong in and out and stowing wet gear, have a spot for phone/ wallet
- strong multiple carry options, and that they are independent of the lid

SAge typhoon had all this plus more and has been awesome

but do your self a favor and look for the sages ones that is drab olive.. the new blue color is damn ugly

North Face?

Went by the North Face outlet store here in Oregon recently. In the back pack section were several waterproof bag options. Most we're priced extremely low because we are obviously past that back to school time frame. Perhaps they're running some holiday specials as well. Nonetheless, I don't remember the model name but it has straps in the backpack style and a front zipper pocket. It has a ton of room and I went with the smaller option though I intended to specifically use it to load for drift boat trips. There were several other options including huge! I know North Face is usually quite expensive but maybe you could call one of the outlet stores and ask about waterproof bags, messenger bags, etc, whatever you might refer to them as other than boat bag which would mean nothing to a North Face employee at an outlet store. Or check their online options. If you're nowhere near Oregon, or wouldn't have an outlet store, let me know if you find something and I'll head to Woodburn for you. It's only a 20 minute trip or so. Please don't everybody take me up on my offer, I'm not doing all the Christmas shopping for you procrastinators just kidding gang, Happy Holidays

Another vote for Seal Line, been using them for years in the canoe for the Blackwood trips. I had the dog tip us one time a good way out from shore and at the end of a fifteen minute swim in to dry land everything in the bags was bone dry. They've also sat through countless hours of torrential downpours in the bottom of a conoe and kept everything completly dry.All different sizes from small hand held to big a$$ canoe bags with tump lines, and I'll bet that you'd pay a fraction of the price without the big fly gear tags on them.
