The Gila Dry Bag is the perfect companion to your Blue Ridge or Canelo Handlebar Harness (or any other handlebar harness for that matter). It's perfect for carrying lightweight items - stuff your sleeping bag, tent, or bag of cotton candy in there for your next bikepacking trip!

The Gila is made from Ecopak or Xpac, with seam-taped construction. In our testing they have proven waterproof against rain, but they are not designed to protect against submersion*.

The Gila dry bag comes in three sizes - Small, Medium and Large. The Large is not recommended for most bikes with suspension forks because of it's diameter.

*We actually did test the Gila in submersion on a canyoneering trip and it did ok - with minor leaking at the rolltop closures because they don't have a sealing strip like a river dry bag. But we still recommend against using the Gila for a river trip, it wasn't designed for that!

Design Features:

  • HDPE stiffeners in the rolltops for easy closure
  • Contrast webbing on one side (so you can remember where you stuffed your rain jacket when a torrential downpour starts...)
  • Water-resistant seam-taped construction

Map of Arizona with location of the Gila River marked

Behind the Name

All of our bags are named after sections of the Arizona Trail, which runs within a mile of our workshop in Flagstaff.

The Gila River Canyons passage of the AZT consists of winding singletrack that follows the Gila River, passing through lush riparian areas and thick saguaro forests.
