Bears Gear: Bears Dry Sack / Stuff Sack

In the Oregon Episode (Season 5, Episode 8), Bear is working his way down to a river, and decided he needs a durable dry sack to make it across. The Bag he chooses is an Ortlieb X-Plorer in Red.

These bags are definitely tuff, and come in Red or Blue, Medium or Large. Unfortunately they are not stocked at many shops that carry Ortlieb in the U.S.. However, it is possible to special order them in person at any REI store or purchase directly from Ortlieb Here.

Info via Ortlieb: X-Plorer, available in two sizes, is a good combination between a drybag and a rucksack. The reliable roll closure makes it ideal for activities such as motorcycling, climbing and canoeing, caving, and many other outdoor activities. The anatomically formed padded shoulder straps with sternum strap and reflective stripes ensure a proper and comfortable fit. If you don’t need it, no problem: in contrast to conventional backpacks you simply roll it up and stow it away. It weighs next to nothing and takes up less space than an empty rucksack with carrying system. D-rings at the closure, the handle and bottom loop can be used for fixing, closing or attaching to a karabiner. Mounting of waterproof outer pockets possible.
