Frequently Asked Questions – Hull & Stern Adventure Dry Bags
- Is it really waterproof? Up to how many meters is it submersible?
Yes, the material used is IPX5 tarpaulin and is waterproof.
However, the bag is not recommended to be submerged. When it falls on water, it will float thereby helping keep your items dry. To prevent water from going in, remember to fold the top flap at least 3 times before closing and sealing the buckle. Having some air within the bag will also help you determine that it is indeed air-tight and water-tight (see video below for further instructions).
HULL & STERN recommends keeping your valuables and electronics in appropriate packaging in cases of submersion underwater. HULL & STERN would not be liable for damage to these items.
- What colours are available?
Colours currently available are listed in our online shop and Lazada. You may also view photos there. Links below.
- Does the bag come with a strap?
Yes, the bag comes with an adjustable strap which you can use to sling around the body like a cross body bag. Our bigger bags have two (2) straps so you may wear them like a backpack.
