Getting your belongings wet when you're hanging out on the beach, chilling by the pool or circumnavigating the globe by yacht is an occupational hazard. Soggy tenners, short-circuited gadgetry, drenched clothing, soaked sandwiches; that clear wobbly stuff we call water gets everywhere, doesn't it?
So how do you keep your powder dry when you're messing about on, or near, the water? No, you don't bung everything in a knotted plastic bag and hope for the best. You pack your gear into an Overboard Dry Tube Bag.
Roll the top over four times Then close with the buckle to seal
These revolutionary receptacles have been created to keep contents 100% dry, so they're perfect for beach bums, campers, watersport lovers and festival fans. Constructed from nylon-coated tarpaulin and sealed tight via an ingenious Fold Seal System™, Overboards are durable, wipe-clean and easy to store when not in use. Available in various sizes you're sure to find an Overboard that fits the bill.
With their yellow or red colouring, Overboards look like the kind of thing the Hoff might have slung over his shoulder back in the Baywatch days. Okay, you're unlikely to bump into Pamela Anderson on Clacton beach but at least you can relax, safe in the knowledge your Overboard is keeping your knick-knacks dry.
Three sizes available:
12L - Yellow
20L - Yellow
30L - Red
Handy carry handle too
Speaking of keeping things dry, thanks to electronically-welded seams these incredible bags even float if dropped in water. Ideal if you decide to abandon ship or capsize when white-water rafting. Well, you never know.
As well as its sturdy handle, the heavy-duty Overboard features a shoulder strap for additional Baywatch-ability. In fact if this bag doesn't become the container of choice for sporty water-lovers, happy campers and style-savvy beach bums, we'll eat our shorts, shades, buckets and spades! All together now, 'I'll be there '
