A good first draft

  • Excerpt: This is a bag that takes a little getting used to. Things are a little difficult to access, especially in the bottom compartments, but the security of waterproofing makes it a worthy sacrifice. Wrestling with the waterproof zipper can be frustrating if you're in a hurry, but the good thing is you don't have to in dry conditions. Just leave it unzipped. There's another regular zipper for the main compartment.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: Hard To Access Equipment, Heavy

Don't trust this bag to keep gear safe!

  • Excerpt: I'm sure the other reviews cover the positive aspects of this bag. It's adjustable, it holds a lot, etc. Here's my story: <br /><br />I used this bag a few times with no issues. At first, I put everything inside into their own gallon sized ziplocs for extra insurance, but after a few trips with no issues I stopped with the extra layer of protection.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Well Padded
  • Cons: Hard To Access Equipment

Nice bag

  • Excerpt: This bag seems very sturdy, and for how boxy it is, it is quite comfortable. Haven't gotten it totally wet yet, but I'm pretty sure it'll keep my stuff dry. The zipper isn't that hard to open, but if you go into and out of your bag a lot, this probably isn't for you. But this bag is going to give me a lot of peace of mind when I'm hiking or on a boat and it gets wet.

Best product at the best price

  • Excerpt: I am going on an Alaskan fishing trip and needed a full sized, waterproof backpack for my essential camera equipment. I chose the DryZone 200 due to excellent reviews and reputation. It has the space/compartments for my camera body and several lenses and other accessories. Most importantly, it is completely waterproof. The B&H price was the lowest anywhere on-line and the quick service, including shipping, was excellent. I highly recommend this pack and B&H.

Excellent drybag

Old Mustang, Adorama

  • Excerpt: This is a serious dry-bag, with a serious waterproof zipper to match. Excellent padding and protection for camera and/or electronic equipment, and just as importantly, the dry-bag itself is (mostly) protected from abrasions and punctures that would compromise its waterproof integrity, I would like to see full coverage around the inner dry-bag, though.<br /><br />Great for any activity in and around water where high-value equipment absolutely has to be kept dry.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Stout Waterproof Zipper, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: Drybag Not 100 Protected, More Volume For Equip, Not Enough Pockets

zipper problems in hot climates

  • Excerpt: I have had this backpack for about 4 years, it mostly gets usedon overseas trips where I use it has my hand luggare to transport camera gear and laoptop. The harness and back system is pretty good, even when the bag is heavy with a full load. Recemtly I went to use the bag and found that the waterproof zipper had seriously deteriorated with the rubber that incases the zipper falling to peices in my hands, and the adhesive (that bonds the zippe to the waterproof shell)...
  • Pros: Strong Construction, Well Padded
