They are made from a strong tarpaulin waterproof fabric augmented with an strong 1000 denier nylon base.  The 100 and 140 Litre Bags come with a fully adjustable Shoulder Harness making the bag carriable as a rucksack.  All the bags come with side and handles and a long strap from end to end.  So many carrying options!

These bags are named Wet and Dry Bags because although the complete bag is a dry bag they have a internal divider which effectively gives you two dry bags, perfect for when you finish a days surfing or kayaking as you can put your wet kit in one section but anything that needs to stay dry can stay in the other half!
