Waterproof portage canoe pack

A review of the MEC Slogg dry pack from Canoeroots & Family Camping magazine.

When roll-down, buckled PVC dry bags took the market by storm in the early ‘90s, colorful rubbery vinyl sacks became a staple in every paddler’s gear closet. Mountain Equipment Co-op introduced their version of the simple and ubiquitous backpackstyle dry bag in 2011. The Slogg comes in three sizes—30, 70 and 115 liters. The single-compartment, barebones setup gets the job done at a very reasonable price. All three sizes have rudimentary quick-drying,
breathable shoulder straps while the two larger sizes feature removable hipbelts. The side handles are a welcome addition, making the otherwise cumbersome process of loading and unloading the oversized pack much easier. Don’t overload the pack—the length of the top compression strap is limited to ensure there is sufficient space to roll down the closure for optimal water resistance. Fitting with MEC’s environmental mandate, all house-brand dry bags are PVC-free.
