Hello April,

Hello April,
To be honest, I don't yet know the answer to your question. My hypothesis is that a little water got into my bag through the opening in the top because I didn't fill the bag to capacity. Consequently, when I folded the opening over on itself several times and buckled the strap, there was very little tension in the bag to hold the folds tight and keep the water out. That is, I think the trick to keeping the contents of the bag dry is to stuff it to capacity, tightly fold the opening of the bag over on itself a few times, and lock the tight folds in place by buckling the strap.
A little water got into my bag while I was fly fishing in a float tube. I had put a small first aid kit (which was itself in a small waterproof bag that didn't leak) in the bag and strapped it loosely to the back of the seat. It was early morning, and I had many layers of clothes that I had expected to shed as the temperature rose, and I was planning to put the clothes in the waterproof bag. However, when I beached the float tube to remove a layer of clothes, I discovered that the bag fell over and the top of the bag was submerged in the water. When I opened the bag to put my jacket in it, I discovered that there was a little water in the bag. Like I said above, I think the water seeped in through the opening because the bag was mostly empty, there was no tension in the bag to keep the folds tight, and the bag fell over so the folded and buckled opening was in the water.
I think it's a well-made bag, but it appears to be waterproof only when it's filled to capacity so that the tension in the bag holds the folded top tightly when buckled. see less

If you cannot successfully seal the bag, then the bag will not be waterproof because fluid will enter the bag through its mouth. This fact is true of any waterproof container that is not hermetically sealed.

Its a great product. I used several times to do kayaking and at the beach. It is water proof is you roll it correctly.
I highly recommended.

There’s an instruction on how to secure the bag. It says to fold the top of the bag twice, before securing the snap on lock. I used yhe bag during a white water rafting activity; and the contents inside remained dry.

You have to roll the top of the bag down than clip it. It is not waterproof if you submerge the bag in a body of water, but works if it gets wet. I also used ziploc bags for extra protection.

Return it, it isn't water proof.
