North Storm Bags – By Woolgoolga Offroad

There’s a lot to be said about the quality of gear on the market these days and I reckon I’ve found some of the best quality adventurer waterproof bags around!

Decent Waterproof Bags

North Storm owners Marc and Lisa saw a demand on the market for decent waterproof bags and began the process to design several configurations for the market. They now offer three different waterproof bags to suit any outdoor adventure. Each bag has its own features, are versatile so they can store your gear when you’re not in the great outdoors and you can also separate the wet and dry stuff while on the go.

North Storm 60 Litre Waterproof Duffel

100% Waterproof

North Storm offer a 60 Litre Waterproof Duffel Bag, 30 Litre Waterproof Backpack right down to a 20 Litre Waterproof Dry Bag. They all have an IP66 waterproof rating, lightweight, made from 100% waterproof flexible and made of durable 500D PVC tarpaulin material, all have various lash/tie down points and much more!

Their waterproof rating makes it totally dust tight while being protected from high pressure jets and can handle a quick dunking. Now I won’t lie, I’ve been giving a couple of these bags a canning the past few months and I must say I am suitably impressed.

Fishing Backpack

The 30 Litre Waterproof Backpack is absolutely huge with heaps of usable storage. It’s got an extra layer on the base, EVA back pads (thick foam that breathes) on the adjustable shoulder straps, easy to use chest strap, removable waist straps, side mesh pockets and the list goes on! I’ve been using it as a fishing backpack when I go to remote fishing spots. It’s handy when I need to hike in and need it when wading across the odd creek or two.

Designed To Be Hosed Off Inside

At the end of the day the bag has been designed to be hosed off inside and out and dry’s quick due to the PVC material it is made from. Inside you say? Yep – simply stand the bag on the ground and fill it up with water then simply empty it out. You’ll achieve two things here – 1. Wash out any muck inside that has spilled. 2. You will see just how waterproof these bags are, nothing leaks out!

Removable Shoulder Straps

The other bag I’ve been using is the North Storm 60 Litre Waterproof Duffel Bag. This Duffel is made from the same material (500D PVC Tarpaulin) and has all the same features, but it also comes with added removable shoulder straps so it can be used as a backpack. With serious tie down points (read 8 in total) so it can be strapped to the top of a 4 wheel drive, on a bike, jet ski or even inside a boat. In addition, two large internal pockets, an external mesh pocket (great for wet or smelly clothes), end grab handles, a large waterproof roll top closure system, plus a host of other features including hard wearing oversize buckles and zips making life easier when fumbling in the dark.

Been Through Dust, Dirt and Rain Plus The Local Car Wash

This waterproof duffel bag has been riding on top of my 4 wheel drive for some time now and been through dust, dirt and rain – plus the local car wash and there has been no trace whatsoever of any moisture inside the bag. Even being out on the tracks all day it’s been great to throw the dirty recovery gear inside the bag knowing that it won’t dump mud and grit inside the car. Then to clean I simply just give it a quick hose out with water, give it a wipe down and set aside to dry – it’s that simple.

So What Makes These Bags Stand Out For Me?

Well its good knowing that they have been designed for our harsh Australian conditions. Plus come from people that have actually put some serious thought and effort into a product. The owners of North Storm breath the outdoors and saw a gap in the market when they couldn’t find a suitable product for their own needs.

So Easy To Clean And Store

Being made from thick and tough PVC material they are so easy to clean and store, while being non rigid these bags can be folded away if you dont have room to hang your bag up. Across the range all the seams have had high frequency welding, it’s where a radio frequency has been used to fuse two pieces together to make a join (bit more complicated than that but it works).

Totally Float-Able If Dropped In A Body Of Water

North Storm’s quality adventurer bags and high standard has resulted in making the joins as strong as the material itself. Making the bags totally float-able if dropped in a body of water. The North Storm range of bags all have heavy duty strapping and safety reflective strips. The Duffel bags have a light covered inside base to make it easier to find those bottom of the bag items.

North Storm Is Starting To Gain A Reputation

The launching of these bags has been a success to owners Marc and Lisa. North Storm have a host of different professional users that demand their bags. From divers, commercial photographers, adventure travellers to sportsman and offshore fisherman through to hikers, and 4 wheel drivers. North Storm is starting to gain a reputation where quality is their number one aim. Their range of quality adventurer waterproof bags are only available online with free postage within Australia.
