Hey guys, Ive just ordered one of these for the purpose of swimming through water with it and being able to photograph at the other side :) was just wondering if anyone on here has experience with these in the water, Ive already heard about the zipper being hard to do up but apparently thats all part of the good sealing, Ive also ordered a Tan Pelican 1500 :) to store the gear in the car but I guess it could be used in water as a back up :)

I have a Dryzone 100, I haven't swam with it, but I have been in some pretty heavy rain and not a drop gets inside.

It is a completely watertight bag according to the manufacturer.

INSURANCE, INSURANCE, INSURANCE. (don't even contemplate this without proper insurance...)

I used the dryzone 200 for a yearlong trip through south and southeast Asia. You'll want to keep extra lube with you if you plan on going on long trips (to re-lube the zippers), but if you get in a pinch...you can find it at a diveshop. It SHOULD seal out the water, but man oh man, I'd be hesitant to go swimming with your gear.

I thought about (am still thinking about it, in fact) getting a Dryzone before we went to the Galapagos, but decided instead to go with redundant gear, extreme caution getting in and out of the inflatable dinghies, and insurance. Of course I wasn't expecting to go swimming with it, but the extra safety of knowing I had something back on the boat with which I could complete the trip was a great comfort. And for the record, even if they call it a "dry" landing, it can still be very wet. But the Domke came through.
