Waterproof packing

Keep your things dry

Pack smart and waterproof

You know that extra battery for your headlamp that you need right now is packed somewhere, but you can't remember where. You feel the sun burning on your skin between the mild winds, but your sunscreen is buried deep in your large bag. And what about that rain jacket that you need now that the rain is pouring down?

Pack smart, light, and dry with color-coded and waterproof dry bags from Silva. Silva's durable and soft dry bags, ranging from 3 liters up to 48 liters depending on the model, keep moisture out even when the waves are crashing over you. Keep track of your gear and easily find what you need!

Dry bags in 100% recycled polyester

Choose the right series

Choose the dry bags series from Silva that suits you best. R-Pet Dry Bags are available in 3, 6, 12, 24, and 36 liters and are made of 100% recycled material that is both lightweight and durable. The soft packing bags are color-coded according to size so you can keep track of what you've packed where. You can pack your phone and sunscreen in the 3-liter pack bag, socks, dry base layers, and shell garments in the 12-liter bag. In the larger dry bags, you can fit rain gear, boots, or other items you need to keep dry and protected.

Built-in valve for smarter packing

Built-in valve for smarter packing
The packing bags in the TPU and TPU-V series are our most durable dry bags, and the transparent material allows you to see what's inside them. The TPU-V models have a built-in valve so you can squeeze the air out of your pack bag and pack extremely compactly on a tight surface. These dry bags are for those who really want to maximize space!

The 70D, series, made of durable nylon, has even clearer color coding so you can find the right dry bag even faster.


Packing soft is generally a more convenient way to pack in your boat compared to using hard cases. Anything that is soft is easier to stow away. Silvas dry bags are designed for all occasions when you want to pack waterproof. In the kayak, on the boat, or perhaps for the hiking trip those times you have stable ground under your feet. If it starts pouring down rain during the hike or snowing during the ski trip, you can keep your gear dry in your backpack and never worry about wet packing weighing you down. Additionally, you can pack often and long with our dry bags because they are extra durable.



We have developed our dry bags for smart and easy packing, but we also receive tips from our customers about clever ways to use them. Just as a dry bag keeps water out, it can also be used to keep water in. One user showed us how she used her smallest dry bag as a water bowl for her dog on a hot summer day. Another user filled his dry bag with air and used it as a floatation device when he swam across a larger body of water. Afterwards, you can pack wet swimsuits or towels in your dry bag to keep the moisture away from other items in your pack. This tip works just as well on a boat as it does on the way home from the swimming pool.

Cozy tent lighting

Create cozy lighting in the cabin by putting your headlamp in a dry bag and hanging it up. In the TPU-V and TPU series, there are hangers on the inside of the smaller models so you can easily hang the headlamp inside. Our waterproof Explore headlamp is our recommendation to bring with you on your trip, it is waterproof up to IPX7. Fill your dry bag with air and you have a soft backrest or pillow when you're lying down and listening to the weather forecast in the evening.
