Dry Sack - Tips

Hello Craig The majority of these bag are all or nothing, they need to make one that is super lightweight, yetis a mesh bag, or light nylon, then when it starts to rain I could pull up a waterprooff cover, and fold over, then have watertightbag. They nowsell these dry sacks on Khao San Road in Thailand, but I always feel too much and again all or nothing, I do not want my camera in a airtight bag. I found this untra, ultra light poncho here in Togo. It started to rain hard and women came and sold me one, I did not have an umbrella. I now carry this poncho, very small in the bottom of my camera case, if it starts to rain, I have a poncho and a cover for my camera. It is not the rain I know about that causes problems, it is the spontaneous showers.

They are similar -- a lightweight version of those same scuba bags made out of nylon.
From the Web site:
Made of Ultra-Sil™ nylon, a polyurethane coated Siliconized Cordura® for ultimate waterproofing and maximum durability Watertight, non-wicking Hypalon® roll top closure with stiffener at the top for a better seal Yes, you take the top and fold it over four or five times, then lock the plastic buckle.

It hasn't been my experience in the last 16+ months to move between A/C and humid, tropical air -- I just don't live in places with A/C. The dry sac doesn't travel with me outside, it it for gear that stays in the room.
Thank you,
