Deck Bags

Keep your essential gear close at hand with a deck bag.

When stowing gear in a deck bag consider how waterproof your bag needs to be.

Watershed bags are truly waterproof - with its Zipdry closure the Aleutian Deck Bag holds those items that must stay dry when we are guiding - documentation and first aid kit.

Deck Bags with roll and clip closures are splash-proof, and may withstand immersion for a small time but it is possible for water to work its way around the rolled closure, so these cannot be considered to be a truly dry bag. The Overboard Deck Bag and Sea To Summit's Access Deck Bag (which contains a Roll& Clip style bag) are this type of deck bag.

The NRS Mesh Deck Bag is a useful container for items that can get wet - it is a fine mesh, so not waterproof.

An alternative to a deck bag is to use a piece of Deck Mesh, threaded through bungee (shockcord). It will hold items in a convenient location. Use a carabiner or bungee and olive clip to lanyard items back to the mesh or perimeter lines for added security.
