Rated 5 out of 5 by Watertight, roomy, light and comfortable. I purchased this bag so I might get my cameras into deep, wet canyons in Australia's World Heritage Blue Mountains. This would involve roping down waterfalls and lengthy swims through flooded slot canyons - so I needed something absolutely waterproof and bone dry. I had looked at competitors offerings, but bulky hard cases were not going to do the trick for me. I basically needed a waterproof version of my trecker series camera backpack, and this one fit the bill perfectly. A waterproof soft back pack? Impossible? I was skeptical at first and before putting my cameras in this bag I stuffed it with tissues and left it in my running shower for a full half hour. The result was a bone dry interior! I was sold. And this back had enough room for my Pro DSLR with standard 50mm f1.4 lens, 70-200mm zoom, 17-35mm zoom, speed light, light meter, cables and accessories and tonnes of room to spare for a small towell and lunch snacks and a tripod hitch on the back to boot. Even after testing the bag I was still nervous about taking this bag into the field and trusting $20K worth of kit to it - a full day in the wet. But the true test came when I had no choice but to jump from a ledge beneath a waterfall into a swirling plunge pool below with my cameras on my back. I was fully immersed, camera bag and all, and had to make a long slow swim to dry ground. Nervously I opened my DryZone bag and was amazed and relieved to find everthing inside bone dry. No leaking seams whatsoever - even after complete immersion! This bag is the bomb! It's every bit as rugged a product as you'd expect from Lowe Pro. It's light weight, comfortable and surprisingly roomy. The deeper sections of the interior can be a bit difficult to access due to it's water tight design, but I use these sections to store my little used but essential items - like the included zipper grease used to maintain the bags heavy duty water tight zipper. I take this bag everywhere now and trust it in the ocean, dust storms, waterfalls and canyons. It even fits in airline overhead baggage compartments. When a waterproof housing and one lens just wont do the trick, this is the bag you need.I highly reccommend this bag to photographers who aren't too precious to get wet and dirty and need a bag that can handle those extreme environvironments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome for paddling adventures. I have had mine for 5 years now and have taken it on many sea kayaking and canoeing adventures. But, to be honest I prefer to just use the inner drypod itself and not the outer shell surrounding it - I find the outer shell with straps and the handle heavy to begin with if i have to carry lots of other backcountry gear with me, never mind when the foam and shell soaks water. So, I ditched the outer shell to lighten it up substantially and I strap the drypod directly to my kayak deck with bungy cords, and I also front carry it while portaging a canoe. I put my camera gear in it plus all of my other electronics to keep them dry, and it is readily accessible once I get to land. It has always stayed dry on me, even when doing kayak rolls, except the time I forgot to do up the zipper all the way. Great product - I just wish LowePro made the drypod with the backpack straps attached directly to the drypod itself for a lightweight solution, instead of using the nylon backpack shell with straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The driest place in camp I took this bag to Canada for a 12 day canoe trip on the lakes and rivers. After several portages per day, 3 days of non stop rain with 30 mph winds, the only dry thing I had was my camera. Three years and dozens of kayak trips, still no leaks! Excellent design and performance. October 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by this is what we needed in the salt water zone. we stay a few weeks on a boat with wet landings. In one word this is a product you can trust on. Salt water included. It fits good in an aicraft handbag luggage locker November 22, 2013

Dimension for tripod/monopod "pocket"

I would like to know the dimension of the "pocket" for the tripod/monopod on the DryZone 200 bag.
The picture shows a monopod in the pocket (at least that's what it looks like to me) and I'd like to know if my tripod would fit that pocket.
I've not seen this bag in any local shops, so I can't measure it for myself, and might need to buy it online.

Answer: 
Hello,

The tuck away tripod holder or "pocket" is approx 9.5cm in depth. It's meant to hold the feet of your tripod or monopod allowing you to secure the tripod to the front of the bag.
