Q: Care and feeding for ZipDry® Closure?
A: Our ZipDry®closure is the most important part of the drybag to take care of. Please take the time to get to know your closure and practice opening and closing the drybag. To get the maximum performance out of your closure, clean and lubricate the tracks of the seal with 303 Aerospace Protectant. For prolonged storage, apply extra 303 to the closure and store sealed indoors.

Q: Closing the Drybag – Always Triple Check
A: Snap seal shut at one end. Working towards the opposite end, snap seal together with your first three fingers and thumbs of both hands. Leave two inches open at the end to either bleed out excess air or to inflate bag and give it buoyancy. Snap last corner shut. Squeeze bag as hard as you can. If no air leaks, bag is ready for submersion.
