Watershed Mckenzie Zipdry Bag for Rainy Season

The Watershed Mckenzie Zipdry Bag is a great example of a new product that came to market because of the gravel category. While the niche didn’t move the needle in bike sales as much as anticipated, it sure has inspired designers to make products cyclists can benefit from.

Inside Mckenzie Zipdry bag, I’m carrying cameras, lens, a shell, and some snacks. A drone on occasion too. You can stuff whatever you want in it, of course. The company was born in the Carolinas but their made-in-the USA bags are widely used all over the world.

Rainy Season

With rainy season upon us in Seattle, I need to keep my electronics dry and also move bags between bikes. I don’t like to carry stuff on my back. That’s the reason I use a fanny pack and for a compact camera use the ATM as seen on the Trek Boone I rode for a summer.

Watershed’s McKenzie Handlebar Bike Bag pairs their ZipDry patented technology for even the wettest ride. With its quick, easy and super secure bar mounting system, this 15oz bag that holds 900 CU.IN, prevents any unwanted movement to your items while keeping them 100% dry – even while on the trickiest singletrack. The bag also works in conjunction with their Ocoee padded liner and divider sets for cameras and lenses.

I have enough liners from other camera bags to stuff my own into the dry bag. Though, Drybag’s liners are made from a 200 denier nylon exterior and velcro receivable fleece interior surrounding 1/2″ closed-cell foam and with a handle to pull out of the drybag quickly.

It isn’t on Amazon at this time, but you can find other very nicely made bags from them like duffels. I have’t spent much time with the Mckenzie Zipdry bag yet but will even in the pouring rain.
