How to pack a dry bag

How To Pack Your Dry Bag

 

The main theme to packing for a wilderness trip is compact, ‘Bring just what you need.’   Meaning don’t over pack on extras such as 3 shirts 2 pants etc…. Dry bags are 12”x 20” top loading and each person gets one bag, so pack your items in a bag close to this size. When we meet you, it’s an easy transfer to our dry bags. The rolled clothing method seems to take up less space. The use of a compressing stuff sack for your sleeping bag saves room also.

Tips on packing:

Don’ts:

  1. Do not bring large cotton flannel sleeping bags. They are giants in the wilderness trip world. We recommend bringing a synthetic bag. They pack easier and are warmer. If this is inconvenient, we have rental sleeping kits available.
  2. Stuff a pillowcase with clothing rather than bringing an actual pillow.
  3. Don’t pack a tent. If there is no chance of rain, consider the opportunity to sleep under the stars.       It’s what the guides do!

Do’s:

  1. Double check that you have any prescription meds you might need.
  2. Whiskey is lighter than beer!! Pack accordingly.
  3. Ask yourself, “Do I Really Need It?”
  4. And remember, ‘If you forgot it, you don’t need it’
