One Key Piece of Gear all Scouts may want to have: a 20-30L thin nylon drysack

Posted on May 2 2021 - 7:34pm

All scouts should have a lightweight thin dry sack to stuff their personal gear, change of clothes, etc., inside to keep them dry.  These sacks usually cost about $25, and work for years.  They can be used inside a backpack, inside a duffle bag, inside your daypack, or by themselves.  A sack between 20 and 35L is a good size for scouts to use and stuff inside their backpack or duffle bag.
