I bought this

for 10 dollars at my local MVP sports on Rte 1 South in Saugus.

I remember Juro talking about one and this may be right for you. It is yellow as you can see, but has a nice clear window down at the bottom so you can see in. It also has a mesh pouch at the top under the flap. Great for my canoe this summer.

What a steal!

I own the SEALINE Boundary dri-packs in blue...

These are 100% waterproof when the tops are sealed up so you can bring electronics along in case you want to videotape some action, etc.

The colors are key - I bought the clear for the flats but the greenhouse effect causes extreme condensation and heating of items. The dark blue is better but my ideal color would be light sky blue / greyish or sand. I also started with the real big one them bought smaller. The waist belt makes all the difference. I still have not found the perfect dripack. Maybe we need to talk to sealine as a consumer advocate group.

You got a killer deal - I could have bought a bunch of these for the cost of my experimentation thus far.
