Giant Loop Torngat Tunnel Bag and Tracker Packer on the Grand Canyon
“This spring I had the good fortune to spend 20 days in the Grand Canyon, rafting the Colorado River. On an expedition of that length in addition to ensuring you don’t run out of beer(we didn’t) or whiskey (we did), you want your gear to be durable and reliable.
I chose to take a Torngat Dry Bag as my smaller, accessible day bag. I kept all my extra clothing, drysuit, sun protection and snacks in it and the split interior helped me to organize and locate things easily. The multiple lash-down points on the exterior of the bag made it a favorite of the riggers – it was easy to get a good, solid cinch on the bag to ensure it stayed in the boat in even the gnarliest rapids. I also loved the reflective stripping on the bag which made it easy to locate (or not trip over) in the dark.
In addition to the Torngat I also took an assortment of saddlebag dry pods that that kept all my gear within my huge drybag sorted. The pods were great on the sandy and wet beach camps once the daily gear explosion happened when we got into camp.
Finally we took a Gen3 Spot and Tracker Packer – mainly to check in daily with family especially my Google Earth-obsessed father but also as a back up to the satellite phone that was required by parks service.”
