Yes, they sure do! Each of our North Storm® waterproof roll top bags float when closed with the roll and seal method. To seal our dry bag, simply roll the top downwards 3 – 4 times then clip the ends together. By rolling it closed, you seal out water and trap air inside. It’s very effective for keeping your gear nice and dry, even if it does happen to go overboard.
Tip no.1 – When sealing your waterproof roll top bag, make sure you don’t expel all the air. More air = More buoyancy.
Tip no. 2 – Do not over fill your waterproof roll top bag. Again, the more air you can trap inside the bag, the better the buoyancy will be if your bag happens to go overboard or you capsize. If you capsize, the bag will float and is easily retrieved. Plus your gear is kept dry.
Tip no. 3 – We recommend you roll your dry bag or backpack at least 3 to 4 times if you think there may be a risk of your bag going into the drink!
Tip no. 4 – You will need a dry bag in more situations than you plan for. Click here to grab yours today.
Roll Tops Are Best
The benefit of having a roll top closure system as opposed to a zipper closure system is it creates a tight waterproof seal and doesn’t get clogged, stuck or break.
Waterproof roll top bags are the handiest of all bags and will give you peace of mind when boating, fishing, kayaking, paddling, beaching… you get the drift!
