1.5L (£7.75) 4L (£8.75) and 10L (£10.25)
An innovative solution for biological and synthetic waste storage and transportation in the great outdoors! Available in sizes 10L, 4L and 1.5L the Waste Man is fully waterproof and airtight. The dual roll-top closure forms a secure seal and the outside of the sac carries a clear warning symbol to avoid confusion with other storage sacs. The sac has external D-rings so that it can be attached to the outside of a rucksack or off the ground. The contents can be transported safely until proper waste disposal facilities become available. This system avoids contaminating land and water and therefore the spread of disease.
1.5L (£7.50) 4L (£8.50)
A simple storage solution for first aid kits. Available in two sizes, they have roll-top closure and are fully airtight and waterproof. Designed to store a third-party, individual or group first aid kit and carrying the official ISO first aid logo - these bags are hard to miss. Made from tough 70D Nylon they have an internal bright white TPU coating that makes it easier to identify what you need in a hurry. External D-rings allow the drybag to be attached to the outside of a rucksack or on a hook for easy access, visibility and storage.
