10 Reasons Why You Need to Own a North Storm Waterproof Bag!

10 Reasons Why You Need to Own a North Storm Waterproof Bag!

1. Camping

Naturally for camping would be our number one no question for needing your North Storm waterproof bag. When you’re camping you need to feel assured that your clothes are going to stay dry and clean. That your sleeping bag or tent even!  A waterproof bag that doesn’t mind being thrown on the back of the Ute or up top on the roof racks. You can also place your North Storm bag on a sandy ground or muddy grass and it will still keep all your gear clean and safe. Allowing you to kick back and just enjoy the freedom of a camp out in any weather.

2. Fishing

Fishing is great! However, keeping clothes dry and clean when you’re on a boat or on beach, it’s always going to get messy. Throw that North Storm waterproof bag on the shoreline or anywhere in the boat and no worries mate. Your spare clothes and gadgets will stay dry and clean!

3. First Aid and Emergency Kit

While we are on fishing, keeping your first aid kit and your emergency Flares and Beacon safe and dry is definitely a priority. Store them safely in your North Storm waterproof bag and have peace of mind knowing that even if you capsize your safety kit will float.

Storing all your safety gear - epirb, flares, first aid kit, torches, jackets in our 60L waterproof duffel bag could save your life and will give your safety gear longevity

4. Flotation Device

Leading on from keeping your emergency kit safe you can also use your waterproof dry bag if need be as a temporary floating device in an emergency for phone, keys etc. Sudden water crossings, tipped the tinny or kayak? At least you have a safe place to store your belongings in any situation and it may help to keep you buoyant. (Please carry safety vests when out on a boat or any sort of water vessel.)

Use your North Storm bag as an emergency flotation device – again we recommend always take your life jacket and wear them when off shore.

5. Beach Bag

When going swimming keep your towels and clothes dry, and don’t forget you don’t want sand in your phone, so throw that in there too! A North Storm waterproof dry bag is your perfect beach companion, you can also use it for a pillow should you choose to kick back and soak up some rays.

6. Bikes

Heading out on your bike? Well don’t leave your North Storm waterproof backpack behind! Whether it’s a mountain bike, BMX, trail bike or motorbike. Just a quick rain shower or the spray of passing cars can be enough for that mud from the back wheel to spray up your back. We all know that feeling, it’s so frustrating and in an instant your gear is ruined! But not with a North Storm waterproof backpack! Best of all you can just hose it off when you get to where you’re going.

7. Wading

If you’re wading in the water, you can’t leave a normal bag on the water’s edge where you need to come back to. Take a North Storm waterproof dry bag and enjoy the great outdoors rain, hail or high tide!

10. Dirty Gear

After all this adventuring the get up you were wearing is going to be filthy, smelly and possibly wet through! But you don’t have to sit in the car on the trip home and smell it or worry about the seats! Simply grab your nice warm clean gear out of the dry inside of your North Storm bag. Then get changed and stick that smelly dirty stuff back in your North Storm waterproof bag and voila! Keep the stink and dirt out from the inside of your car! Happy days!
