Q. How do I keep my clothes dry whenever I am in the water?
— Wet Wayne, Sherman Oaks, Calif.
A. Dude, don’t wear your clothes in the water! Now, if you’re talking about keeping the clothes inside your pack dry while you’re on a canoe outing or some such, a dry bag is what you need. These waterproof bags usually have a roll-top closure that will keep the stuff inside dry even if they’re floating down the river. Most dry bags range from about $10 to $75 depending on size, thickness and durability. Look for quality dry bags from brands like Sea to Summit and SealLine.
