FAQs

Q: How do I lubricate the ZipDry closure and what products should I use?
A: Watershed recommends that you keep the tracks of the ZipDry closure lubricated every couple months (or sooner if used frequently or in arid, hot climates) with 303 Protectant (sold on our website) or Armor All.

Q: How do I store my Watershed bag?
A: Store your Watershed bag with the ZipDry closed to prolong the life and amount of time needed for lubrication treatments.

Q: What is the best way to open my Watershed bag?
A: All of our drybags come with printed instructions on how best to open and close your bag, but we also have this video for those looking for more information.

Q: What is the best way to close my Watershed bag?
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.

Q: Where can I purchase Watershed bags?
A: Watershed has an extensive dealer network, use our Dealer Locator to find one near you! We also sell all of our products online, in case there is no dealer located nearby or it is more convenient for you to shop online. Please note that some of our bags are online exclusives and are not available in retail locations.

Q: Are your bags submersible?
A: Watershed ZipDry Waterproof bags have been tested down to 300 feet and are proven to be dry!

Q: What are your bags made out of?
A: Watershed bags are made of Kryptothane® Fabric, a 420-denier nylon packcloth coated in layers with polyurethane. Our fabric is flexible in cold weather, UV stable and more environmentally friendly that the PVC fabric used in the majority of “dry” bags in the market.
