I'm not trying to be difficult here or offend anyone, but what's the point of a "dry bag" that doesn't keep things dry?
I used this on a small water ski boat to keep my dry clothes, well you know, dry...but since the bag was placed on the floor they were soaked once I opened the bag. Other than looking cooler than a grocery bag, what's the point?

Actually it was closed correctly....it’s just not a “dry bag” but rather a slash proof bag....

Dry sacks like these and heavier duty "dry bags" should keep your stuff dry. I have an Outdoor Research bag just like this, and I would easily trust it in a kayak. I'm not sure what a splash proof bag is, but I don't think I'd trust one on water.
Tested these out in my swimming pool this weekend; they are NOT dry bags. All three allowed water into the bag. I would say at best these are water resistant. Biggest issue is that the seams are not sealed, so I'm guessing the water got in that way. Very disappointed in these bags, and probably will never use them.
I have skipped on this drop a bunch of times. Not this one. I like my stuff to be organized in my pack. Plus dry bags. Awesome.
How do you know the shipping/taxes?

For shipping click on the join drop button and it will tell you. Shipping varies based on shipping destination.
As cheap as cheap can be made, very disappointed!

For what it's worth, I haven't had a problem with mine, and I've been using them in my kayak for almost 2 years now.
I own these from a prior drop. Have used the red and yellow on thru hikes so often and carry one or the other when traveling internationally instead of a heavy purse to be able to travel lite. Threads finally starting to come unraveled from the red. Like them so well I'm thinking of ordering again, but have never used the orange and really don't want an extra unused bag sitting around. The other two are really great.
Any update on the shipping of this last drop?
Any word on how well the 10L acts as a stuff sack for a 20°F down bag? Specifically a Kelty Cosmic Down. Internet is not absolute but suggests another 10L works.
Cromulent
*Update: it fits in the large one but JUST barely. It's quite the struggle. I'd honestly just get a specific compression bag, or use the one that comes with Kelty.
I own both. I haven't tried it but I could do that when I get home tonight, ill update you once I do. I will say that the stuff sacks are fantastic regardless. I've used them on multiple trips now.
Cromulent
I mean, you might be able to jam it in, but it would take a lot of effort and it would be quite hard to close it up. Cosmic 20 is not particularly compact
Only $25.99 from Amazon shipped in 2 days. With shipping costs here, not really much of a savings. Barely a few $$

But out of stock...
Can these bags be submerged underwater?

Since these bags are described as lightweight protection I would not expect them to be fully submersible and expect totally dry for more then a quick dunk. They don't seem to be described as expedition quality type of dry bag.
These bags are definitely not submersible and barely qualify as 'waterproof'. The most accurate description should be 'splash-proof'.
Yes, they will keep your stuff dry for a few minutes if it starts raining for example, but the material itself as well as the seams will eventually give in to the water and your stuff will get wet. The term 'Dry Bag' is very misleading.
Does anyone know if this price includes shipping or if that is extra. Nothing in the description tells me.

If you press join drop you'll get more information. The shipping is 6,00$ for me.

Shipping is high because they're so heavy! /s
Seriously.. $6 shipping in a $20 product? EDIT: K, it's only 2.75 in the US... that's fair.
I might actually get some more of these... they're amazingly lightweight, strong, and definitely water proof! I would definitely recommend them for any kind of hiking or backpacking!
thefeev
I bought these on a previous drop myself. I can definitely vouch for the lightweight and strong robust design. Luckily I haven't needed to test their waterproofness yet!
I think I may have deleted the notification email regarding delivery. Could it be resent please. I had ordered two of this product. Have not seen anything yet?

This message came in from Massdrop on Jan 26. ( Bulk order shipped! The vendor informed us that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive on 1/31.Expect another update from us on 2/6 or sooner if something comes up.) We may not see anything until end of Feb into March at this rate. At least it's on it's way.
Just to mention that Sea To Summit line of Ultra Sil Nano Dry sacks have similar sacks twice lighter than these, but more expensive: 1L: 13g, $13 2L: 16g, $15 4L: 19g, $17 8L: 24g, $20 13L: 28g, $23 20L: 36g, $27 35L: 46g, $35
If you're going to be super ultralight this drop is not for you.
Shouldn't it be working with USPS, instead? I know, good luck with that!
FYI , UPS does this some, but seems to me that they do it a lot less than they used to, I presume due to USPS issues.
Hey Guys! In the past we’ve seen lag times between Tendered to USPS and Arrived at Sort Facility. The amount of info we have on our side is limited to what the tracking shows as well, but this amount of time seems abnormally long and we’re working with DHL to figure out exactly what’s happening.

No response? What did you learn from DHL? Will you continue to use DHL?
dkmc
Maybe he's not responding to you because you sound like an overbearing dad trying to talk to a petulant son. Now what did you learn here today, dkmc? I hope you were taking notes. People won't respond to you when you act like an insolent daddy figure. Ahem. Yes, well. Good day, now.
What's really telling is that they are aware of this issue and are unwilling to make a comment in this discussion page. They will not admit that something went wrong with this enitre drop
Has anyone received theirs yet? Still waiting on mine. I've never had an issue with MassDrop before and this is rather disheartening.

Update: Mine arrived yesterday.
I had a defective item a little while back. I had the same steps you did. I went through the process and got my refund. All was handled well, if a little slower than I would have liked but I wasn't in any real hurry.
Just charge it back with PayPal and stop using Massdrop. Make sure you let everyone know not to use it either. It's the only way they respond.
Update: Like magic. Massdrop support contacted me on a Sunday to assure me that it's perfectly normal for a package to never be scanned. Even though the package still has not been scanned even once. They are refusing to admit these items were lost. PayPal has already returned the money to my account thank god.
I was waiting on these to arrive. Have Screen Shots (1) of DHL "Claiming" to have turned shipment over to USPS on 15 SEPT 16. Second Screen Shot of USPS on today's date 16 SEPT 16 that claims they are still in "Pre-Shipment." They were supposed to arrive in the Mail Today 16 Sept 16 ... Mail has been Delivered, and NO DRY BAGS. GLAD I HAVEN'T ORDERED ANYTHING ELSE FROM MASSDROP
Don_M
This is exactly what happened to me in the end. They were "en route" for a number of days and the sent to USPS. But the postal service still shows it as preshipping. Really really sketchy. I had a second package leave mass drop at the same time on the same day arrive yesterday. No response from Massdrop support for three days now. I'm disputing the transaction with PayPal
SunCityJon
DHL now claims that USPS has DELIVERED them. USPS claims they are in Pre Shipment. MASSDROP Customer Support claims they are not responsible for delivery and they have up to 10 business days to deliver. Go figure ...

Has anyone at Massdrop tracked any DHL shipments? Has anyone at Massdrop contacted DHL about the outrageous transit times? Has Massdrop decided to stop using DHL? My experience is very much like others commenting here. The package routing makes no sense. It drops into a black hole for 10 days after alledgedly being handed over to USPS.
Does Massdrop care about customers and their shopping experience?
dkmc
Same here it left the warehouse 9/9 then went to a USPS site in Washington 9/14, Disappeared for TWELVE DAYS (No USPS Info and No updates from DHL), Then checked into the local USPS in Oregon 9/26, I have another shipment that is doing the same thing as well. If this continues to happen i will stop using your service. What is DHL doing i have had no issues untill September. Please resolve ASAP!
Very disappointed!
Was really looking forward to receive this drop; however, was just informed via email that my items were lost in transit. So rather than have me wait indefinitely for replacements Massdrop just gone ahead and cancelled my order and return my funds. Sigh. At least Angela from the customer service team kept me well informed of the situation.
spatchcock
It looks like the same thing may have happened to me, too. Just messaged Massdrop support and DHL. I was really looking forward to these. I even planned a camping trip this weekend in anticipation of them arriving. I guess it's back to Walmart brand compression sacks lol
SunCityJon
Those Walmart compression sacks are great! Talk about waterproof! I used their large bag to hold my pre-filtered water storage bag on a week-long  backpacking and camping trip. Excellent!

Has anyone owned this set? Or had something made from the same material? Somewhat on the fence of it due to it being PU.
Mickifree
It's $20. Take a chance, live a little!
Antnee
$20 is a lot of money for a college student lol. Also, I might be able to grab better dry bags for this price range with pro deals through my work. However I'll have to wait until my department needs to order supplies, which might not be until early next year.

PU Polyurethane dry bags are OK I have several but prefer high quality SilNylon (Silicone impregnated ripstop nylon) which is generally lighter and lasts longer. It doesn't need to be the Sea-to-Summit Ultra or Ultra Nano or any of their other heavier lines, there are other manufacturers that make good SilNylon dry bags. eVent bags are less waterproof but effective in a backpack as well. I like small PU bags for kayaks not backpacking. Dry bags of all types and manufactures have eventually failed on me, obviously nothing lasts forever, my trips are hard on gear :-)
I agree PU is generally cheaper and doesn't last as long, but most PU coatings used today are better than they were many years ago. I'll be interested to see how these hold up. All my dry bags eventually fail or need patches, both expensive and cheap, light or heavy. Best to check before each trip and as you suggest avoid sharp or rough objects inside as well out. If in bottom of a boat with something critical like bedding (Down SB) I sometimes double bag. Backpack or extra nylon canvas bag in kayak/canoe can help to reduce wear of sand etc. from grinding on them.
Why is shipping $2.75 for 1 set, $6.75 for 2 sets?
Agree: same for BOTH
ClassAct
Shipping is a bit funky on this for sure. The shipping calculation is technically correct, but usually shipping is less for the second item. We're looking into improving this. Sorry for those of you who would have bought two but decided against it due to shipping cost. Thanks for posting @ClassAct @raptelan @Sixty7flh
