Selkie 40 Litre Dry Bag

We love this new dry bag from swim kit and lifestyle brand Selkie, which continues their mission to provide good-looking, technical kit and apparel to outdoor swimmers. Made of heavy duty PVC, the bag feels robust and high quality. It has one storage compartment big enough to carry all the kit you might need – a wetsuit, towel and clothes all fitted in easily and the roll-down top meant everything was secure and waterproof.

The bag comes with two removable straps, so you can carry it either slung over your shoulder or as a rucksack, and a heavy duty carry handle. We found it most comfortable carried over the shoulder on one strap rather than as a rucksack. It also looks smart – matt black with orange details and high-visibility reflective spots for safety (particularly useful while cycling).
