Another great option is the CabinZero ADV Dry Bag, which is a sturdy, waterproof option that combats any and all forms of weather. It has a roll-top entry, which limits the size of what you can pack but is the most efficient way to keep water out (seam taping and stitching are gateways for leakage), and it’s available in a variety of sizes. This one packs 30L, which is big enough to take on weekend cabin getaways or river trips—and it’ll also swallow a couple of bags of ice and a few 12-packs.
Another option is this tote from Arden Cove, which is crafted from 100% water-resistant PVC with a durable nylon interior that’s lined with an insulated fabric that keeps your food and drinks cold or hot.

It’s also got a trolley sleeve for attaching to your rolling luggage, and you can add a monogram or name for a custom look.
