Dry Bag Reviews – Help For The Hunter And The Gatherer

Not a lot of people are aware of this, but there are two types of shoppers in the world – the hunter and the gatherer. The Hunter takes a look at several items and then buys that one item that catches his eye. The gatherer, on the other hand, takes a look at several items and then buys several items just in case.

No matter what your buying personality is, there is no doubt that you should try to control your impulse. Do not let basic instinct get in the way of smart shopping. Thankfully for you, shopping smart isn’t so difficult these days. You only need to take a look at the reviews of the different products before making a decision. This applies to whatever product it is that you’re buying, yes, including dry bags.

If you search for “dry bags” on Google, you will see different pages that offer top ten list of the different brands of the same product. But we’re here to tell you that the websites that publish those top ten lists use a script on their website that automatically pulls out the top-rated products on Amazon. If that sounds like cheating, not really, it’s more like they’re lazy. However, being lazy is a helpful tool.


If you have ever used Amazon before, then you already know that it can be difficult to find the top products in any category. Sure, you can sort by relevance, but you will get a wide range of products that are difficult to sort through. Sorting by customer ratings, on the other hand, yields non-relevant results.

The auto-generation script used by the different review websites are smart and can help you narrow your choice more easily.

When it comes to dry bags, you have a choice among the best affordable bags, the best bags in the mid-price range, and the best items in the high-end category. Bags that are less than $50 are considered affordable while those between $50 to $100 are mid-range and, of course, those costing over $100 are high-end.

We think that the first step in the right direction is choosing which price range to go for. There are brands out there that are considered the best in each category. Once you know what price range you prefer, it will be easier to seek out different brands.

Before buying anything, make sure to check out at least three brands and see what other customers have been saying about each of them. Aside from the positive comments, you will want to choose a dry bag based on the following criteria: materials and capacity.

The materials used in a bag should be totally waterproof and will not give you a headache if you choose to leave your bag outside your tent where it will be exposed to the night’s moisture. As for capacity, make sure that all the items that need to be dry – like your clothes and food – should fit in it.
