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.

Before we fall headlong down this particular rabbit hole, I just want to make it clear that I have no answers, I only have questions. However, they’re questions that I believe we should all ask of ourselves and if we’re honest and truthful, then perhaps the answers and solutions will readily present themselves. Once upon […]

Rightly or wrongly, I kind of assume that other people assume that I only ever use meths stoves. The real truth is, I’ll happily burn any kind of fuel in my continual quest for another brew. I feel there’s a time and a place for every type of stove and conditions combined with your own […]

To most upright members of society, a tent peg will receive less thought than what they’re having for their dinner. Conversely, to the ardent bikepacker, the seemingly humble tent peg is a source of untold fascination. Length, diameter, material and obviously weight all require careful scrutiny if the Holy Grail of tent pegs is ever […]
