There’s certain bits of kit that you really want to keep dry. Soggy money, damp cameras and moist phones won’t usually serve you very well. 

The faithful nylon dry bag is 1 solution to keeping your bits dry but for some items, even a tiny 1 litre dry bag’s a lot bigger that you actually need. Okay then, how about a ziploc plastic bag? Yeah, they’re small enough and light but they’re not exactly robust … 2 nights and a bit of rough treatment can leave them a lot less waterproof than you’d like.

Say hello to Loksak pouches … they’re guaranteed fully waterproof to a depth of 200ft (by which point you won’t care anymore), are tough enough to be continually used for months on end, weigh next to nothing and are certainly much cheaper than a new camera.

It says, you’ll have already drowned before this leaks!

The closure is a very simple affair, similar to what you’d find on a freezer bag but the seal is much stronger … you definitely won’t be left wondering whether it’s sealed or not. There’s no additional fold over flaps or velro fastenings … just slide you fingertips across the seal and that’s it, ready for action. Whatever’s inside is now hermetically sealed from whatever’s outside but your touchscreen will still work, you can still take photographs and you can make and receive phone calls too.

Ideal for phones, cash and invisible pixies.


The pouches come in a variety of sizes from 3″ x 6″ up to a foot square, which is ideal if you’re carrying 3 grand in used twenties. I’ve been using them for the last 8 months and while they’re starting to bear the scars of use, they haven’t leaked, punctured, become brittle or fallen apart.

Prices start at £9.50 for 3 bags and I bought mine HERE

    stu, what size is shown in the piccie with the phone in it?

    ta, dave

  2. The poches pictured are 3.3" x 6.3". Just be aware that it's an ipod not a phone, I don't think an iphone would fit in pouches that size … you might want the next size up.

Unless you possess a particularly weighty sleeping bag, then chances are, the heaviest single piece of kit carried on your bike, is your shelter. If you favour a proper, double skinned tent in which to rest your weary head, then it’s almost a certainty … unless of course, you have very deep pockets. For those […]

It might be summer but those long, dark nights will be here much sooner than you imagine or hope. Even the most ardent exponent of ‘camp to ride’ will likely find themselves holed up beneath their shelter of choice for extended hours of darkness, so the requirement for some form of light is almost a […]
