Patagonia produces some fantastic gear and their waterproof dry bags and backpacks are no exception.
Here are a handful of dry bags and backpacks from Patagonia’s we wanted to highlight for surfers.
Great Patagonia Dry Bags & Backpacks for Surfing
Patagonia – Stormsurge Sling 20L
Patagonia’s Stormsurge Sling 20L is one of the higher priced dry bags coming in at $229.00 and it’s easy to see why. It is both superior in functionality and design.
Made in the Philippines, this bag is very lightweight at 1 lb. 8 oz. It is made of a burly nylon core with TPU coating that makes it 100% waterproof and durable.
While its grab handle makes it easy to grab and dash, it has a super comfortable fully adjustable, low-profile, padded shoulder strap that carries over the right shoulder, making carrying even particular heavy gear a breeze.
It has multiple external lashing options that allow you to stash your other surfing gear with side utility keepers which offer easy attachment to avoid piercing the fabric.
It’s 100% waterproof TIZIP® zippers allow for quick access and safe storage of items you wish to stay dry like your phone, clothing and cameras.
It is important to note that Patagonia products come with an iron clad guarantee.
We are fans of Patagonia for both their products and their philosophy.

Made of 100% nylon with a single-side TPU coating and a water resistant finish, this bag is durable, water proof and submersible.

Patagonia – Stormsurge Hip Pack 10L
The Stormsurge Hip Pack 10L from Patagonia is a fully welded and 100% waterproof-submersible dry bag that will keep your stuff nice and dry even in the foulest of conditions.
Like the other Patagonia bags on our list, it is made of burly nylon with a single side TPU coating and a water repellent finish secured by waterproof zips.
Unlike the rest, its capacity is much smaller and it is not built for heavy use. It is secured around the waist by a low-profile hip belt. It also has a padded neck strap to help handle large loads and distribute the weight.

If you are a hardcore surfer with a lot of gear and gadgets and you are always in the water, this is the bag for you.
This bag is reasonably priced at $149.00.
Though it is non-submergible, its other features make it absolutely worthwhile. It has a low-profile shoulder harness which is very comfortable for any weight.
