Recommendations for Sail Bag

I need to buy a new sail bag. Something to pack for weekend to week long cruises. I like to have pockets in them to to store items like compass, glasses etc. for easy access. Any recomendations?

I'd recommend going with something that has a drybag type section, so that you don't have to worry about your clothes getting soaked on a dinghy ride. Teva makes a pretty nice one that has an outside pocket for small articles. I have this bag in Yellow and it's one of my primary pieces of luggage.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I use a big Seal-Line bag with backpack straps. I managed to fall in trying to heave it onto a dock from a dinghy and nothing in it (including GF's laptop) got wet. We won't talk about the cell phone in my pocket *grin*. For the little stuff I have a second Seal-Line bag that generally lives in my big bag.

I will say that watching your bag float in the water while you try to get up onto the dock and then fish it out does get your attention. I'm sure that there are good alternatives, but I am now a serious Seal-Line fan.

i love this, but no pockets though, end up either putting my burton backpack inside it for organization or use a bunch of little bags in the bag. ive swam(swum?lol) from my dock to the next with it and not a drop inside. its totally submersible.

Well, that's three calls for a dry-sack type backpack...
