SealLine Baja Dry Bag Review – Built To Last!

Have you already heard about the Sealline Brand?

You probably have because they are renown for being one of the most popular dry bags on the market!

All of their products are made in the US with their own RF welding machines by paddlers, surfers, and engineers who have only one thing in mind: make the best dry bags for your adventures!

Sealine dry bags are ultra-durable, waterproof, and super lightweight. In other words, bags you can count on to protect all your valuables no matter where you go and in any weather condition. Here is the SealLine Baja Dry Bag review.

What Is The Sealine Baja Dry Bag?

The Sealine Baja is a durable bag that features a roll-down closure, providing an excellent watertight seal. Once the bag is closed, no air no water can get inside or outside of the bag. So you can be sure your stuff will be well protected! Thanks to its stiff material, it will serve you for years to come!

Sealine Baja Features


The bag is made of 19 oz scrim-reinforced vinyl and the bottom of heavy duty 30 oz scrim-reinforced vinyl. Meaning – the bag is built with two layers of high strength vinyl film, then laminated with an extra layer of molten vinyl. In other words, the bag provides a high level of tear resistance, durability, and waterproofness.

Closure System

Like many other dry bags in similar models, it closes with a roll-top closure. This means you have to roll down the top a few times and then close it with the two buckles placed at each extremity of the closure. Not only does it create a great seal to keep all the content safe, but also allows you to access your content easily.

Lashing Points

On one side of the bag, there is a D-ring that allows you to attach it to a boat, canoe, kayak, or to any vehicle you wish. The only inconvenience with the Baja is that it doesn’t feature any straps or loops. Fortunately, the bag can be easily used via its carrying handle created by the buckled seal.

Size: The Baja is available in 8 sizes: 5L, 10L, 20L, 30L, 40L, 50L, and 55L.
Storage Capability

If you pick a larger size, you can always roll it down to a smaller capacity. But if you choose a bag that is too small, you won’t have the possibility to make it bigger. So don’t worry if the bag you opt for is a bit larger than you expected!

Let’s see what each of them can approximately hold.

5L: Small items such as wallet, iPhone, camera, etc..
10L: Clothing for one day out
30L: Clothing for a weekend trip
40L: Clothing for a three-day trip.
50L: Clothing for a week trip
55L: Clothing for more than a week trip


The Baja comes in 7 different colors. Black, olive, red, yellow, blue, green, orange. The brightest allow spotting the bag quickly in the dark or from a great distance.


Sealine Company offers a lifetime guarantee for the Baja, giving you plenty of time!

Is The Sealine Baja Submersible?

This bag is not designed to be submerged underwater for a long time. However, if it falls overboard, the bag will float, and all the content will remain dry if, and only if, the bag is well secured. For some peace of mind, you can try to submerge the bag filled with paper first in the bath and see if it works. Just make sure before to check if there isn’t any defect or a hole in the bag. You never know!

Where Can You Use The Sealine Baja

You can use it wherever you want, but since it doesn’t feature any strap, it will be difficult to carry it while hiking unless you store it in a larger bag or attach it with a rope. The only way you can carry this bag is with its handle created by the roll-down closure. What you can do, though, is slip on a strap through the D-ring and the handle so you can transport it more easily.

How To Seal The Sealine Baja?

Put all your gear in the Baja and leave at least 3 inches below the black bands empty so you can secure the bag properly. Once everything is in place, close the bag using the two edges and roll the top down by pressing the bag to get the air out. Tight it as much as possible and clip the two buckles. And voila, your dry bag is ready to go on your excursion!

How To Care For The Bag?

Since the Baja material is stiff, it is not possible to put it in the washing machine. So the surer way to maintain the bag is to clean it with a rag and gentle soap. When you’ve finished with the soap, rinse it with clear water. It is imperative to air out the bag after each use to prevent any unpleasant odor.

Who Is The Sealine Baja For?

The Baja is for anyone who practices water sports such as kayaking, canoes, rafting, boating, and snorkeling to name a few. This bag can also be used for camping as well as for biking and motorcycle rides. It is not a bag though you can carry comfortably for hiking or traveling as it doesn’t feature any strap to hold it.

Should You Buy The Baja?

If you are an avid watersport lover, then yes, you should definitely get the Baja! Here are the reasons why: It is made of vinyl material, which makes this bag exceptionally durable. Another good thing about it is that it has a high level of waterproofness, so if your bag gets wet, you can be sure your gear will remain dry. Also, It is remarkably versatile. You can use it as a pillow as well as a cooler or a floating device.

  1. I just bought a kayak and have been considering a dry bag to store extra clothes, my cell phone, basically anything else I don’t want to get wet. I live in an area where strong winds can come up at just about any time, so being stuck on a lake with high winds, can and does lead to some choppy water. I got pretty soaked last time I was out, all I had was some of my gear in ziplock bags. I definitely need something more durable. I like the video review, he highly recommends this bag. Very thorough review, thank you very much.

    • Hi Steve and Kris,

      Yes, I see what you mean, it happened to me many times with my belongings, too:) That’s why I always use a dry bag for my watersport adventures. One of my favorite dry bags is the Kwik Tek Duffel; it is also a durable bag!

      The Baja is the perfect bag for kayak trips; it will without a doubt protect all your gear! 

      I am glad you’ve found the review useful, great to hear kind comments:)

      Thank you for passing by and wish you a lovely day!

  2. I love your review of the SealLine Baja Bag. I am a Cub Scout Den Leader, and these would be perfect for camping.
    One of the worries while camping is rain. Usually if it rains all of your clothes will get soaked, because while it is raining we are doing activites, not hanging around our tents. With a dry bag like this there would be no worries.
    I will have to buy 2 of the 55 L for my son and I.
    Thank you for providing this information.

    • Hi Mike,

      I agree with you. The Baja will be perfect for your camping trips. The material of this bag is extremely stiff, so you can count it to keep your stuff dry! 
      The 55L is quite big, and you should take into consideration that the bag doesn’t feature any strap. You will have to add it to the bag using a rope or something similar. But anyway, the 55L is a roomy bag, you will have to transport it on a vehicle if you load it with plenty of gear.

      Have fun with the bags, I am sure your son, and you will love them!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a beautiful day!
