It's an age-old story: Some of the gear on board will inevitably get wet, but some of it must stay dry. To solve this dilemma, Harken offers the Roll-Top Wet/Dry Bag that protects gear from rain, spray and occasional submersion.
It is made of lightweight impregnated nylon with welded seams and features a reinforced bottom panel, two roll-top fastening points, an air-purge valve, and carrying straps that are adjustable and removable. The bag's adjustable compartment separates wet gear from dry and can be arranged to form a full-length waterproof bag, a breathable mesh bag, or a combination of both. The Roll-Top Wet/Dry Bag retails for $45. Harken, Pewaukee, Wis. Phone: (262) 691-3320. www.harken.com
