I have used all kinds of zip-lock types of bags for years to keep my gear dry. The ALOKSAK bags are the bomb! I have used them on camping trips and when I am in the field training/missions (military). After using these bags I will not use a zip-lock bag. You can get the combo pack for about $10.

Where do you guys order these? I know carries them but are there better/other places? I could use a combo pack to put my first aid kit in one of these.

Chris, I get my bags at the PX/clothing sales on Post. I save sales tax… But the following link should take you to a site that I purchase equipment for work.

I had a smaller one. After a year the bag cracked just under the zipper/seal. The bigger ones might be good for bear storage, given that they are 100% odor proof, but I can’t see using the small ones. Too much $$ for too little useable life.

REI sells them.

similar issues to dave c.
was using a small bag for brevet cue sheets and a slightly larger one for cell phone / id and such.
cracked and was useless with maybe only 4-5 rides with it.

love them when they work.
larger may be better…

I liked the idea, but unfortunantly, I had the exact same problem with the bag spliting right below the zip seal too. It was on the big one (about gallon size). I was using it to keep dry clothes in and it only lasted for about 4-6 days of use which consisted mostly of just riding in my seat pack. The little ones are still holding but not sure for how long.

Anyone tried to return the damaged ones?

I had the same problem with the seam splitting. But for me it happened the very first time I tried opening the bag. Extremely poorly made product.
