This isn’t your normal bikepacking bag, which is great for those who want to go from the bike to the boat. The difference is the ZipDry closure. It makes the McKenzie 100% submersible. There’s a handle for carrying, plus two bungee-cord clamps and a Velcro loop that attach to your bike. Installation was quick and easy, though there was some jostling while under way. The McKenzie holds 15 liters, which means you might need a saddle bag, too, but for day trips and dirtbag overnighters on or near the water, this bag is a natural. $129.
