Huroic S-216 Dry Bags

This burly dry bag from Huroic (think heroic) features a roll-top closure, a stout handle and heavy duty, adjustable pack straps ($65). It’s 100% waterproof, which means it’s great for rafting or boating, and a great option for protecting expensive cameras or tablets in the backcountry. Huroic is based in Spokane, and the S-216 comes in three colors, is easy to clean, and features a 30-liter capacity. (JJ)

Multi-Function Paddle

Western Washington-based Switchblade Multi-Purpose Paddles has created an innovative, four-piece paddle that converts from a SUP paddle to a kayak or canoe paddle in seconds. Ideal for stand-up paddleboarding in potentially windy conditions, the Switchblade allows paddlers to sit on their boards and turn their SUP paddle into a kayak paddle for safer and easier boating ($149-349). It’s also great if you own kayaks and paddleboards and want one paddle that works for all craft. (DK)//
