How waterproof are the Simms Dry Creek bags?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about getting one of the Simms Dry Creek camera bags to carry DSLR while hiking and fishing. Are they able to be submersed for short times - say the time required to get out of the water after you trip over the only rock in the stream bed? Also will they protect a camera during a rainstorm if you get caught in one?

 

thanks

Well i ordered the bag, unfortunately i will be promptly returning it. It is a nice abg and all, just very small, i dont think i could have put just the camera body into the bag much less a camera with lens

They are good bags, and are impervious to rain and a dunking. I use them extensively. For my DSLR though, I skipped the "camera" bag because as you saw, it's just too small. I carry mine in the padded roll top fanny pack. I've got the chest pack, back pack, and small, medium and large duffles and use them everywhere from wading for steelhead to in my boat for muskie. I love 'em, and they've never got wet inside.

Yep, what Kodiak said. Crotalus that camera bag is meant for small point and shoots. Any of their roll-top fishing bags will hold your camera, flys, and all your other gear too. I put a Nikon DSLR in mine, and it's been completely underwater a few times, and comes out dry as a bone. I use it on my kayak as well. They work great, it's just about finding the right size one for your application.
