Keeping stuff dry and protected in canyons has always been a challenge. Dry bags do okay when they are new, but often puncture or simply wear out.

Air and watertight containers ideal for canyoning but also for canoe and kayak tours, and on many other activities. The propeller shaped lid contains a rubber ring which allows a simple yet effective closure, even after years of use. Almost unbreakable and tightly sealed with a ‘grippy’ screw lid.

Available in two sizes, they use the same hard-plastic, rubber-sealed lid, and are sized well for fitting inside packs, while providing maximum protection for your valuables.

Here's a few things to know:

  • The top seal can fail. If you try to cram too much stuff inside, it can interfere with closing the lid all the way - pushing against the stuff inside can feel like the last half-turn that seals the top. OR a cord or string can get caught in the top. OR sand or dirt on the seal can prevent forming an effective seal. Keep your keg clean, and don't overstuff.
  • The stuff inside the keg can rattle around and be damaged. Protect stuff inside the Keg with your spare hat, or a small towel which you can also use to dry and clean your hands.
  • While pretty robust, a sharp impact can crack the lid. Inspect the center of the lid from time to time, and discard if a crack is starting. Look at the center of the lid for the start of a crack
  • DON’T throw your pack down onto rocks. If the lid scores a direct impact onto a rock from ten feet, it will probably crack.
  • If you wrap some duct tape around your keg, then you'll have some handy if you need it.
  • Since all kegs look the same, use a felt marker to write your name on the outside.
  • Kegs are fairly well rounded, but do have sharp edges. Don’t use them in tight, narrow canyons where the edges pressing against the fabric will induce rapid pack destruction.
  • The lid can be leashed to the keg with a piece of small cord.
