Unigear 600D Dry Bag Solution

We at VADV Adventures are always on the lookout for innovative, inexpensive and lightweight gear for MotoVloging, Backpacking, Motorcycle Camping or applications where the preferred form factor is small, packable and lightweight.

The Unigear 600D Dry Bag 5L has become a part of my every day carry (EDC) collection  – It is my “Man Bag”.  I originally purchased the Unigear 600D Dry Bag 5L as a strap on pack solution for my motorcycle enabling me to carry a few more items outside of my saddlebags and still remain waterproof.   This worked out great and I put on several hundred miles with the Unigear 5L attached to my bike and even got compliments along the way of my genius motorcycle pack application – and it matches my bike !!

Uses are many and I have some Ideas for you !!

  • iPad or Tablet protection. ( I use the Unigear 5L every day for this).
  • Gym clothes bag  – won’t stink up your car !!
  • Gear compartmentalization.
  • Dry Bag for water related sports or activities.
  • Camera Gear Bag.

I plan to get another Unigear 2L and 10L – Why?  Well I am going to use one for my cooking gear mostly and the 2L unit (Red) for a first aid kit !!.  The trick to using the Unigear 5L or any other size with electronics or similar is you need a padded liner of some sort – I use Koozies, Towels and Stocking Caps !!  The uses are really endless.  I love the Unigear 5L.

The Ulanzi ST-01 is a good solid (Under $15) option for holding your smart phone for shooting video or stills.  We appreciate how the unit cradles our iPhone w/o worry of scratching.  The clamp is compatible with standard ball head screws so the Ulanzi ST-01 can be utilized with a variety of grips and tripods.  After use the unit compresses down to it’s smallest size and does not vibrate or rattle during transit.  It’s darn pretty too !!
