The Animas features the same 100% waterproof closure as the Ocoee but in a popular backpack style. It offers enough room for a couple of days worth of gear, along with the convenience of removable backpack straps. Perfect for taking along your lunch and camera, extra clothing on a longer trip, or enough gear for two days on the river.
Unlike many bags that zip, snap, or roll, Watershed drybags seal shut like a freezer food storage bag — except with a lot more grip and power. Bag closures lock shut to form an airtight and watertight seal that can endure up to 300 feet of underwater pressure.
Most drybags on the market today aren’t built to last. Coated in cheap PVC, they wear out quickly and become stiff in cold weather — not to mention, they release toxic fumes into the environment. Watershed drybags use polyurethane-coated fabric, which is chemically stable and provides five times the abrasion resistance of PVC. This means that Watershed® drybags perform better and last longer than other drybags.
Seams are a known weak point of many outdoor bags — they’re often the first place a bag splits, rips, and tears until it’s no longer intact. Watershed don’t just throw in an extra stitch or two to strengthen the seams. Instead, they double- and triple-layer the fabric at meeting points and weld joints together with high pressure radio waves. This creates an ultra-strong seamless bond built to last through the toughest conditions.
Watershed® was created by river guides more than 20 years ago. Frustrated by the lack of drybag options available to them, they meticulously crafted one that met all of their needs. Today, the Watershed® team continues to obsess over every detail of our bags so that they solve every outdoorsman’s problems. Design features like multiple lash points, compression straps, a wide opening, and comfortable straps ensure that your drybag never feels like a burden.
Watershed inspect every single bag before it leaves, making sure it meets the highest standards and is 100% leak-proof. They know that keeping your gear dry during an outdoor adventure can be a matter of survival, safety, and fun. So go ahead and get out!
