* Does price matter when protecting your technology and gear?
* Yeti makes a waterproof—and nearly life-proof dry bag
* Made with abrasion-resistant and waterproof nylon 

‘Life-proof’ is a term that may cause for pause when it comes to describing products, as we live different lifestyles from others. So, we are always on the look-out for tough and long-lasting goods to get us through the roughest of conditions, such as durable iPhone cases and backpacks for international adventures. We stand behind these products mentioned who aim to stand up to the elements and help us focus on the fun at-hand rather that potential damage to our stuff. Another brand that has stepped up to the plate with arguably some of the most rugged—and convenient—travel products on the market are the people behind Yeti. But this brand name does not come without a serious price-tag on their products. We have already investigated the functionality of their insulated, outdoor cooler that proves if you need a waterproof container in the outdoors when carrying precious food, specifically meat, then it really may be worth the investment.

This duffel drybag from Yeti recently came onto our radar as it has excellent reviews on Amazon that deem this as the go-to bag for wet and wild adventures that puts your precious tech at risk for damage. One reviewer had to share their success story with this Pangea drybag saying, “I used this to travel and hunt carrying my DSLR AND LENSES. I’ve bought cheaper DSLR AND CAMERA backpacks and they never kept my gear safe from the elements. This pack will definitely do that and more. Now my $15k in gear is totally safe!!!”

Made from a thick shell of high-density nylon and tough-as-nails lamination that is puncture- and abrasion-resistant, this backpack is actually their first non-insulated piece of gear that is designed not to keep food and drinks cool but made specifically for the wettest of adventures like fly-fishing trips, white-water rafting excursions, and extended backcountry jaunts in rainy regions.

It is designed with an airtight zipper closure, so, no water can ever seep into the bag when it remains completely closed—deeming it a 100% dry bag. The straps attached to the bag are secured with durable hardware that can handle whacks and hard hits and allows you to wear this as a backpack for easy transport across the river or to your camping destination. This bag claims to be such a brutally tough piece of gear that you can toss this overboard and it will float and remain dry even when totally submerged. If you are transporting expensive camera and video gear or sporting equipment and need a piece of luggage that will hold up in even the most troublesome and tough conditions, this bag is probably one of the best investments you can make.
