You got me to thinking about how well the Ortlieb bags held up after 10 years. So, I just took the black bag shown above in 2007 and filled it with about 6-8 gallons of water. It was perfectly water tight! If it'll hold water in, it can keep water out! =)I'm glad a thread is being started on this. I travel pretty frequently with camera gear and living in Florida with unpredictable rain showers I've been thinking of the best options for keeping my equipment protected and dry. Right now I'm considering the most simple trash bag around my current camera bag and then tying it down or using a small net to secure it to the seat behind me.
That remind me of how some good ole american leather products are made which even used 365 days a year through all kinds of weather still doesn't leak or show structural wear. That to me is impressive.I'm amazed the stitching is so waterproof. When most companies advertise their bags as waterproof, it's usually for the odd rain shower you get stuck in, but your's double as those camel back water bladders.
That would be perfect, unfortunately they don't seem to ship to the US.These look nice but seem small and are exspensive. I to need a rack and I am trying to convince my local metal fabricator to build one for me.
I may have to pay the $ and get one of these
