DRY IS THE THING TO BE

Passage Maker - - Gear Products -

Oddly enough, it’s the peo­ple who love the wa­ter the most—boaters, surfers, swim­mers—who best ap­pre­ci­ate the value of stay­ing dry. Dry is good for elec­tron­ics, spare clothes, Kleenex, un­der­wear, etc. And water­sports en­thu­si­asts know how hard it can be to achieve true dry­ness.

Be­ing wet all the time, in­vet­er­ate surfer and aim­less ex­plorer Kle­men Surk de­cided to in­vent a back­pack that could, at the very least, keep most of his af­fairs dry. Surk’s fledg­ling com­pany, DryTide Gear, was born out of this sim­ple ne­ces­sity.

Hon­estly, I’m a sucker for a good back­pack and by all ac­counts Surk’s are en­vi­able packs to bag. They are stylish, made from 100% wa­ter­proof ma­te­ri­als, and use min­i­mal stitch­ing, which means that the pack will float in wa­ter for an in­def­i­nite pe­riod of time. But most im­por­tantly, if you’re off on your kayak, pad­dle­board, or ten­der to find that undis­cov­ered beach in Bali, you’ll have peace of mind know­ing that your beach tow­els will stay dry—at least un­til it’s time to use them.
