5.0 out of 5 stars Great bag for small (ish) kit, 19 Sept. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Overboard Waterproof Saddle Bag (Sports)
I have owned larger, 40 litre similarly fastened (PVC) bags, for sailing kit. But my requirement for this Overboard 5 ltr bag was very different.
The bag arrives in a hermetically sealed bag, and so requires a while to take up its correct shape. It has - inside - a silver coloured/lined base for added protection. Once I'd figured out how exactly to position the top fastening, four(4) rolls of the sealing top became a cinch and easy to achieve. The bag's snap clips (which make its handle when fastened) are substantial and look to last for ages.

Don't expect this bag to be HUGE 'cos it aint! ... My reason for ordering it.
Nevertheless, once this bags' material warmed up I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only would it carry my personal 'meds' but there was also room for a tightly rolled pair of Henri Lloyd TP2 waterproof waist trousers, along with a pouched multitool knife, my camera, a pair of [small] binoculars, a 'phone and sunglasses ... with a bit of room to spare.

The wide black, (stout tape), adjustable carrying handle, which has plastic/stainless steel snap hook at each of its ends, clips nicely, neatly into a 'D' ring in the sealed, rolled, top end, and to a similar 'D' ring attached to the bag's base (sealed with the same, silver material as described above).
The bag , when slung across one's shoulders, does have a tendency to 'roll around' from back to front ... which can be disconcerting when riding a bike! But this 'rolling' can be alleviated by using the very cool looking, stong, neat purple anodised carbine hook (supplied with each Overboard product), as a clip to the waist.

On first use, out on the water, a wet rainy day in a fast RIB, the bag was accidentally dropped in the drink!
I'm pleased to report that the bag floated on the surface and all its contents remained bone dry ...

I recommend this product, and can only say to other reviewers, and potential purchasers that it takes a bit of practice to get the top sealing strip tight ... like most waterproofing, it's an easily acquired knack!
Tip: Leave sufficient air space for buoyancy!
