The Patagonia Planing Collection

OverBoard Dry Bags

Read More

I do a lot of scuba diving… In fact, the older I get the more I tend to yearn for the water in general. I’m starting to need the ocean in a way I never have before.

Anyway, all of this diving through the years has gotten me in tune with the gear… and one of the most important things to me is a proper dry bag. I’ve gone through a bunch… and then, at my local dive shop yard sale, I bought a used OverBoard dry bag. It’s by a large margin the best I’ve ever owned.

If you need one. Stop looking.
