Product Description

A float bag that doubles as a dry bag, the Watershed Futa Stowfloat™ features expedition grade hardware, an airtight closure and a tapered design to fit most kayaks. Float bags aid kayakers in a swim and the Futa gives paddlers the added benefit of a place to store dry gear.
  • Airtight ZipDry® closure seals out water and guarantees to keep your gear dry.
  • Compression straps offer custom sizing.
  • Long inflate/deflate tube for easy buoyancy control.
  • Quality construction features RF welded seams, expedition-grade hardware and mil-spec stitching reinforcements to handle the most rugged adventures.
  • Inflated size: 27"H x 18" W x 7.5" D (tapers to 18" x 7.5"), 1152 cu. in., 19 liters.
  • Measure the inside compartment of your boat to determine the correct size of float bag. (We recommend ordering a bag that is slightly larger in dimensions to fill the space completely.)
  • Named after the Futaleufu, a popular river in Chile.

To ensure longevity in the performance of your ZipDry Seal, Watershed recommends periodic lubrication with a non-petroleum based product such as 303 UV Protectant (sold separately), Armor-All or Burt's Bees hand salve.

How To: Use Watershed's ZipDry Closure System (00:33)
Our patented ZipDry® seal is what sets our bags apart. Snap it shut like a freezer bag, and anything inside is protected - even underwater. Opening - Do not force bag open by pulling the tabs apart! ZipDry bags have a very tight, completely leak-proof closure; improper opening could compromise the seal. - Grip bag by its closure with both hands, laying thumbs over the grip tabs. Keep index fingers on the tracks of the seal. - Squeeze and kink closure into both palms, forming and "S" with hands offset. Bag will pop open easily. This technique becomes easier with a little practice. Closing: - Make sure closure is clean and properly lubricated with silicone spray or similar lube. If in the field and none of these are available, use oil, saliva or water in the closure tracks as necessary. Cleaning and Lubrication: - This closure provides a very close-fitting rubber seal. It is therefore necessary to occasionally clean and condition it to maintain ease of use and reliability. Thoroughly clean tracks. - Spray lubricant/ protectant (we recommend 303 aerospace protectant) on to brush and thoroughly brush into full length of closure. - Snap closure together and pull apart a few times to evenly distribute lubricant/protectant. - It is recommended to store closure in closed position to prolong time between cleanings. - If lubricant/protectant is not available, similar products are effective. In the field, any lubricant, saliva, or water will work to help close the tracks if they are dry.
