This bag does keep your belongings safe from water. Just to be safe, I combined it with a waterproof case for my phone. It made our beach adventures much more enjoyable without worrying about our valuables!
Needed something bigger then just a phone bag but smaller then the dry bags we have this it great for sunscreen, chap stick, my wallet, phone and a few other things! It’s a bit of a pain to open and close but wouldn’t deter me from buying it again!
The strap is long enough to wear side saddle when you’re out on the water and despite the fact that the three plastic tabs takes some getting used to, it kept our items dry. It’s a good size for wallets, keys, phones (assuming you have not purchased a waterproof phone case) and incidentals. We use it every time we’re out on the kayaks.
Very disappointed! Bought this for river floating. Small bag with a terrible configuration on the closure. It has three prongs that must line up to be able to close it shut so you need two hands free. This is hard to do when your on the water. B
I loved the idea of this product, the size was perfect. But when I was looking at how to get things inside, I found the opening too small and I was very afraid I would tear it down the sides as it was being used. I ended up returning it.
I frequently go kayaking and stand up paddleboarding (SUP) and this has been great so far! I typically only bring the essentials when I’m out on the water like my phone, wallet, car keys and I find this waterproof purse very spacious for what I need to bring. I wanted to find a bag that had a clasp close like the ones I see for phones. I read some other reviews about the bag being difficult to open but personally I didn’t have trouble with it at all. You can watch my example video on how easy it is to open.
The bag keeps my items dry but if you’re worried about things getting wet then I suggest also putting important items (wallet, keys) in a ziploc bag for additional security while in the waterproof bag. If you’re even more worried about your phone, I also like using a waterproof transparent phone bag/case (The ones I see on amazon that have a lanyard attached) with my phone since I like bringing it out to take pictures. It’s basically double waterproof since I also put it in the bag when I’m not using it for an extended amount of time but personally I like wearing it around my neck for easy access pictures on the water. It may seem weird to use a waterproof case for your phone in a waterproof bag but its better than losing your $1000 phone to water damage. Plus the waterproof phone case/bags have lanyards attached in case it accidentally slips from your hands.
I also suggest testing the bag before using it for a real trip. I tested mine by putting paper towels in it, then placing it in a bathtub l filled with water, throwing in the bag in, and submerging it a few times over the course of 30 min. It was all dry when I opened it. The bag also floats if there is enough air in it before you close it. Although I haven’t tested how much It floats with heavier items inside. I recommend just adjusting the strap to make it tighter on your body so it doesn’t somehow detach from you if you were to fall in the water.
