Got one 13ltr Alpkit extra, the more rugged one.
After a wet week in Knoydart, and finding out that my new rucksack is not as waterproof as i expected, and going old school with bin bags reminded me of how fragile they can be.
Anyway, picked up a couple of 2 ltr, a 15 ltr and some 4 or 5 ltr Karrimor bags. 10,000mm rating, build quality appears to compare with my Alpkit, unused so far. Only slightly cheaper than Alpkit.
When in Sourlies bothy the Finnish couple we met where using the Karrimor dry bags, they where most happy with them.
Agree with Sportdirect shops only carrying a small Field&Trek section, i have mail ordered and there is way more on the website.
Very aware of the hit and miss nature of the Karrimor brand.
So far using KSB Event boots vibram sole, very nice and comfy.
X-lite carbon walking poles, they hit quoted minimum weight, and took a lot of abuse.
X-lite sleeping mat, so far so good.
Last minute impulse buy before jumping on the train was in the Field&Trek shop in Fort William, grabbed a pair of weather tight water proof trousers, for £20 well impressed, they saw a lot of action.
Have seen conflicting reviews on the Karrimor waterproof coats, first reviews are positive, 3 months later some issues, and heard the jokes about the down gilets not having much down in them.
The bags are worth a punt. Was a thread on here the other day about Halfords knocking out dry bags for 40p !

My name is Sheela and I got into this Forum to find out which is the best option to buy a waterproof bag so I could go for some outdoors activities, the bag needs to be capable of keeping my personal belongings dry!
Could you guys help me out on this search?
I need a bag pack that I could adapt to my bicycle, the size should be medium, and about the price???? Well…., you know, the cheaper the better!
Don’t forget to keep in mind quality, sometime the cheapest option makes you purchase twice!
Ok, Thanks to all for any possible help! 🙂Posted 4 years ago
