Wickelfisch Dry Bag

Imported from Germany by Chillswim, these fish-shaped dry bags are ideal for keeping your kit dry while you mess about in the water. Simply bundle your clothes inside and roll down the top seven times while ensuring you’ve trapped a little air inside. Strap the bag around your waist and swim. The small bag will hold a light travel towel and perhaps a pair of shorts and a tee-shirt while the larger one will carry a complete change of clothes.

Unlike the Chillswim tow floats the Wickelfish Dry Bags are not inflatable so cannot be used as a safety device. The manufacturers also don’t accept liability for electronic devices carried in the bag so while we didn’t experience any leakage problems it might be worth finding some additional protection for your phone. Available in blue, red, green, orange and violet.

£12.50 (small) or £19.99 (large)
