Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from Great option for a waterproof backpack I bought this bag for a recent multi-day whitewater rafting trip. It's one of the only options out there if you want a waterproof pack. It kept all my gear perfectly dry, and performed great under the wet conditions. I'd rate it a 5, but it's pretty heavy for a backpack, and it's a bit difficult to get equipment out quickly since you need to unclip the outer shell, unzip the dry bag, then unzip the inner insert. I don't see myself using this pack for everyday use. I'll likely just use it when rafting, fly fishing, and hiking slot canyons when I need the extra peace of mind that my pack will keep my gear dry if it goes for a swim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weather Sealed one of the best backpacks out there for your camera gear. Creates a nice seal when you travel through conditions. got this bag as a gift early 2008, and i still have the same bag. Though I shifted from a DSLR setup to a mirroless set up, I still use the bag since it give the necessary protection that my gear needs. I have more space now that before, but it still gives my gear decent protection when i travel. It's a bit pricey (thank god i got this a a gift :P), but you can never sacrifice quality over price. You will always get what you pay for. Protection from the elements for your gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from Surfline Approved I'm an aquatic photographer for Surfline and have to travel to many different wave breaks around the planet. Many photographers will never leave their gear behind and walk away, but when you have to shoot in the ocean like I do... YOU DON'T... and this bag is the reason!! I have had mine for 3 years now, and I can't imagine myself with a different bag. I have gone snorkeling, and shot 30 foot wave breaks bobbing in the ocean with this bag on my back, while I was in the water. It balances the weight of my gear and holds two bodies in addition to my 70-200 and 100-400mm lenses perfectly. Not to mention being able to carry a full sized tripod attached as well; well that's just whip cream on top of the cake frosting. I guarantee that if my current DryZone ever fails, I won't hesitate to buy another one in a heartbeat, but after 3 years of going deep under the falls, and floating for hours, I have complete confidence that this bag will never need replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be amazing if.... I have the smaller version, the Dryzone 100 which they do not make any longer. I just recently went to take it on a work trip to Fiji only to find that the T-zip was broken at the very end of the zipper where it is supposed to "lock" the bag to provide waterproof protection, right where the place where the flap folds over clearly creating stress on that part of the zipper. The bag had only been used for storage of my gear and had gone on one my trip with me. It looks brand new except for the broken zipper which was always maintained with the lubricant. I sent email to Lowepro over a month ago with photos of the issue. And sadly never received a reply other than to say they were busy. So I would recommend this if it had longevity and if there were any customer service due to the failure of a rarely used zipper....but since it did fail and they did not respond I say boo to Lowepro.

Question & Answer

Is the DryZone 200 small enough to be used as carry on luggage in a plane? I'm about to do a photographic expedition to Patagonia and Antarctica and this looks perfect. With a sleeve type pocket to suit a laptop/tablet it would be absolutely perfect

Asked by: gembrook
Answer is technically correct. However, I have traveled the world with mine and was never stopped.

Are there are plans to make this awesomely functional in pure black?  The yellow is hideous.  I'd be embarrassed to carry this in the field.  Not only that but for bird and wildlife this is like carrying a flapping flag "here I am!"  

Asked by: bvbv
Just cut off the yellow front - problem solved - others do this & its lighter.

Asked by: RyanK
