Not for the kayak

I bought a 5L version of this as a dry bag for use in my motorcycle tank bag. For that it works great. The bag is so thin it hardly takes up any space. I'd also be comfortable using this camping to keep things dry. I would not; however, use this in the kayak for 2 reasons. (1) I don't think it would remain waterproof very long if submerged, and in fact REI says it's not for kayaking. (2) Not as durable (hook proof) material as my Sea to Summit Big River dry bag.

So, used for it's intended purpose this bag is great but don't be mistaken. This bag shouldn't be used in the kayak.
