Best Waterproof Jet Ski Duffels
Are you an adventurer? If you go on day or weekend-long trips on your jet ski, duffel bags are a crucial part of your journey. What’s great about some of the top-rated jet ski duffels is they also double as backpacking bags. You can carry a change of clothes, sleeping bag, and even a tent in a jet ski duffel – all while keeping your belongings dry.
The Sealine Pro is a 115 Liter bag that is suitable for even backpacking across Europe. This is a serious bag designed for camping in the harshest conditions. Sealine makes a variety of accessories for water sports, but even non-PWC owners often turn to this brand for a bag they know will stay dry – no matter what. This bag costs about $140.
The Sealine Pro features a dry-seal roll top flap, welded seams, and is 100% waterproof. This means the bag can withstand rain, splashes, and even submersion in the event of a jet ski flip or rollover. The bag is even designed to float if it is dropped in the water.
It weighs about 4 pounds unpacked and features padded waist and shoulder straps. Sealine Pro is also offered in smaller sizes, and it is certainly a brand you can trust regardless of product. This is one of the most trusted brands in the industry.
YETI Panga Airtight
If budget isn’t an issue, the YETI bag is a step above the Sealine Pro at $299. In addition to being waterproof, this bag is abrasion and puncture resistant. This is a bag that will last a lifetime!
If you need a great all-around duffel on a budget, this Earth Pak is one of the best deals at about $65. It is completely waterproof, comes in a variety of colors, and even includes a free waterproof phone case. This is a mid-size bag at 55 liters, but this is still suitable for trips or camping. Simply strap it to the back of your jet ski and then put it on your back when you are ready to leave. It features an ergonomic design similar to the Sealine Pro, with padded waist support to mitigate back strain.
Earth Pak Waterproof Dry Bag
For a cheaper, no-frills option our go-to is a standard Earth Pak roll-top dry bag. This dry bag comes in a variety of sizes and colors, ranging from 10L to 55L. The 20L version has been my personal sweet spot as far as size goes. The 20L is going to carry a single beach towel and a handful of other items that you want to keep dry for your day on the water. This bag also has the added benefit of convenience, all you have to do to keep water out of this bag is roll the top a few times before closing it. If you want something that just going to get the job done you can’t go wrong with this option. I have owned a handful of these bags throughout the years and don’t have any complaints whatsoever.
If you order a size larger than the 20L bag, their strap system switches to backpack style straps for each shoulder and away from the single strap. The price on this bag is really attractive as well, ranging from $19.99 for the 10L bag up to $38.99 for the 55L bag.
Best Small Waterproof Bags and Boating Pouches
Bags and pouches are something that all jet ski owners need. We all are probably aware of the need for waterproof phone cases, but sometimes an afterthought is a bag for documents, like titles and fishing licenses. Because these bags sometimes are stored inside the jet ski, it’s best to get a bag that is also fireproof!
The JUNDUN Pouch is perfect for wallets, cash, registrations, licenses, phones, and more. It is a small zippered pouch that is water AND fireproof. It is perfect for your most valuable belongings while you are on the water and it is surprisingly affordable at just $15. It is very highly rated and a popular bag.
SealLine MAC Sack
This is a small, simple bag and the toughest bag you can get for $15. It is designed for the US Marine Corps and can withstand extreme abuse. No bells and whistles, but this thing is strong and waterproof. It’s 9 liters.
Mpow Waterproof Neck Pouch
These things are sweet. Keep your phone protected for just $14. These pouches can fit large phones at 6.8 inches like the iPhone 11 MAX and Samsung Galaxy Notes. These pouches are not just fully submersible but even soundproof, dirtproof, and snowproof. This pouch can double as a phone protector when hiking or camping, not just when you are on the water.
This isn’t a bag for carrying belongings, but we love this bag and thought it would be appropriate to include. Every jet ski owner should own a durable, waterproof first aid kit. You hopefully will never need it, but it’s foolish to not have one! If you are looking for a first aid kit to strap on your jet ski, this is our favorite:
There are many first aid kits that claim to be for boats and jetskis but often they include stitching and glue, effective making it “water-resistant” and not “waterproof”. A true waterproof bag should have welded seams and dry sealed zippers, like this bag. The bag includes:
600D TPU Bag(1), 6″ Shears(1), Adhesive Bandages: Butterfly – Large(5), Butterfly – Medium(5), Large(5), Standard(30), Square(5), Mini(5), H-Shape(5), Combine Dressing(1), Conforming Bandages(6), Gauze Swabs(10), CPR Bag with Instructions(1), CPR Mask(1), Ear Buds(20), Emergency Blanket(1), Eye Pads(3), Fever Strips(3), First Aid Handbook(1), Hydro Gel(5), Tape(1), Non-Adhesive Dressings(10), Personal Laminate Baggies(6), Pressure Bandage(1), Safety Pins(10), Splinter Probes(10), Wound Strip Closures(9), Triangular Bandage(2), Tweezers(1), Whistle(1), Wound Dressings(2).
This is the bag lifeguards use on the beach. It includes D rings and various straps to easily attach to your jet ski or a bigger bag. It comes out to about $89.
