North Storm Bags – By Woolgoolga Offroad

There is a lot to be said about the quality of gear on the market these days. However, 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. Firstly, they 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. They are versatile and store your gear when you’re not in the great outdoors. In addition, 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. All bags have an IP66 waterproof rating. They are lightweight, made from 100% waterproof flexible and made of durable 500D PVC tarpaulin material. In addition they have various lash/tie down points and much more!

Their bags waterproof rating makes it totally dust tight. Not only that your gear is 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. I must say I am suitably impressed by these waterproof bags.

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. Also easy to use chest straps, removable waist straps, side mesh pockets and the list goes on! I’ve been using it as a fishing waterproof backpack when I go to remote fishing spots. The waterproof backpack is handy when I need to hike in. Moreover 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. Plus the waterproof bags dry quick. due to the PVC material they are 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 waterproof Duffel bag is made from the same material (500D PVC Tarpaulin) and has all the same features. In addition, it also comes with FREE removable shoulder straps. Therefore it comes in handy if you need to use it as a backpack. With serious tie down points (8 in total). This waterproof Duffel 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 and a large waterproof roll top closure system. Moreover a host of other features! This includes 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!  I can honestly say 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. I know 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?

It is good to know 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. Therefore they saw a gap in the market when they couldn’t find a suitable product for their own needs.

So Easy To Clean And Store

These waterproof bags are made from thick and tough PVC material and are so easy to clean and store. While being non-rigid these bags can be folded away if you don’t have room to hang your bag up. Across the range, all the seams are high frequency welded. To clarify this is 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. In addition the Duffel bags have a light covered inside base to make it easier to find those bottom of the bag items.

This brand ‘North Storm® is starting to gain a reputation where quality is their number one aim.
