Gear Review: Exped Vista Organiser

Zip-top bags that are super waterproof.

Any zippered storage sack can keep out a little drizzle. The Exped Vista Organiser protects valuables from full washing-machine whitewater, and does it without a cumbersome roll-top closure, thanks to an impervious, and easily sealed, waterproof zip. And the see-through plastic pouches let our tester spot the gear she needed without rummaging though every sack in the boat. It comes in three sizes; the largest measures 15 by 9 inches and held maps and guidebooks. $18-25;
