Sturdy outdoor gear bag when you need that next level of protection
GEAR MATE 59 - DRY BAG - EXTRA LARGE - BLACK PVC
Been looking for something to stash your gear in to protect it from the wind, rain & dust?
So were we and this is our solution.
This is a large bag, designed to carry a fair load of gear, including bulky items that may not fit in most dry bags. It also needed to be tough so you can throw it in the tinny, tray, canoe or roof rack with confidence. To top it off, we wanted it sealed so if things get wet, your gear will stay dry.
A practical adventure bag when you don't want the conditions to hold you back from getting out there.
- Easy roll top lid with velcro + buckle
- Large capacity approx 45.5L - 600 x 300 x 300 mm working size (boxed base)
- Open size approx 64L - 900 x 300 x 300 mm
- Hang from tree, sit on ground or stash on deck
- Black PVC, stong & durable
- Heavy-duty 680gsm PVC - truck tarp grade
- Black for quick dry after rain, dew or spray
- Welded + stitched base and seams
- Can be used as a general purpose outdoor bag
- Keep gear clean & dry on roof rack, trailer, tray or boat
- Highly water resistant (see note below)
- Can be used as a portable Bin Bag
- Made in Western Australia
Note: The seams are stiched and welded so they are waterproof, the overall bag is not waterproof rated. It has undergone practical use testing for general camp and outdoor activities and does not have an IPX rating. It is not designed for extreme, professional or submerged use. How waterproof the bag is depends on how it is closed at the top, the purpose for the roll top design. We recommend rolling the top tightly 4 times to seal it. We advise placing electronic or other items impacted by water/dust in a seperate sealed bag, suited to the conditions and mode of use. The bag is a large 900 height when open allowing for the x4 rolls to still have a good working size of this heavy duty material, approx 600 mm.

Jimmy's Tip: If you camp with kids, keep a bag like this at the door of you tent, trailer, van etc.. for shoes, thongs etc to be thrown in. We camp a lot in wet, muddy conditions so this saves it all coming inside and the love being shared around!
If you love your water sports and don't have time for gear to dry, this a great bag to chuck in wetsuits, towels etc so you can sort it later.
- Some pictures of the bag may be different to the current model available. Design changes regularly occur based on feedback & performance.
- Overseas customers - please check the import duties for your country. You may receive additional shipping / Government charges on arrival which will be your responsibility.
WHAT'S THE STORY?
This bag has be a couple of years in the making.
Originally it started off from the need to store the boots outside the swag.
Wether it was protecting them from the rain or something crawling in or curious wildlife taking off with then (it can happen!). We just knew that we did not want them in the swag with us yet wanted them close at hand to wack back on when needed, especially when nature calls...
After testing a few roll top PVC bag prototypes that were stitched only, we realised that water can get in. May only be a few mm in driving rain that won't upset your boots but it was enough for us. Welding does at a lot more time and expense to the product yet it opens up opportunities too.
We love watching Pete from WA Camping Adventures (WACA) Tinny trips on YouTube and wondered if this bag had more potential uses... mmm....
So next step was to stitch and weld the bottom + side seams, remove the stitched logo and develop something that will not let the water in.
It's going to get constant testing from Pete on his Tinny trips and we may see more canoe camping trips.
Note - The bag is being designed for practical use on land and water to keep gear protected and dry as possible. It is not designed to be sumberged or waterproof rated. So for most common outdoor activities it will do the job, it's not designed for professional use. We want to personally use it and see our customers use it comfortably as a bag that can be exposed to the elements on the roof rack, tray, trailer, boat, canoe, backpack etc.. so that is what we are aiming for. If we're not 100% comfortable to use it personally with our own gear, we won't release it.
In time we'd love to find a more eco product that does the same job compared to PVC. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let us know.
We'd love to hear & see how it works for you. As always we will make improvements based on your feedback.
