Question & Answer

How can we use the loops in front on the dryzone bags? You can't tighten them.

Asked by: Baby36
The answer provided is inadequate. I can't understand how you could insert trekking poles or a tripod that would stay in place since the loops can't be tighten. Also, how is one suppose to use, or not use the slits higher on the bag? A few photo examples of what to do, or not to do, would be very helpful. I just purchased this item and plan to use it in a couple of weeks while hiking a creek.

Hi, I'm a cinematographer from Spain. I would like to know if it is possible to have more discreet colors in your range of Dry Bags. I often shoot wildlife, so bright yellow is not an option for me. Military green or black will be great.
