Re: Problem/Issues experienced with backpacks and duffle bags carried along

I have a variety of backpacks, day packs and duffle type bags as do most cruisers after a while.

The biggest difficulty is always the zips.

The metal zip pull corrodes and jams to the zip making the whole pack useless.

salt air gets everywhere into a boat, and dinghy.

The trendy sailing packs you roll up the mouth and clip it secure.

A daypack, duffel etc with CLIPs instead of zips would be a big reason to buy for me!
