This is the perfect product for those wanting to train for or take part in Swim-Run events or those travelling and wanted to cut down on kit when open water swimming. It’s the same 28L version as Zone3’s regular Dry Bag Safety Buoy but with shoulder backpack straps glue bonded on and a chest strap for a secure fit.
This brightly coloured inflatable dry bag is ideal for storing your kit while you swim and to use as an inflatable buoy for increased visibility in open water. Since its launch the product has received a high number of fantastic customers’ reviews and has become very popular among open water swimmers all over the world.
The original product has also become popular with Swim-Run athletes who want to alternate consecutively between open water swimming and running as part of their training but there was always the problem of how to carry the buoy after use, this innovative design solves that issue.
The Zone3 dry bag features dual air bags, to be inflated once the bag is filled with training gear. The inflation chambers are separate from the storage area, thus providing more buoyancy than just a normal dry bag.
The adjustable dual belt design attaches securely around the swimmer's waist and ensures that the product remains out of stroke range while swimming. The shoulder straps are designed to be lightweight and quick drying and use elastic webbing rather than nylon for a softer and reduce water absorption. If you cycle or run to swim then this cut’s down on the need for taking a backpack so you can keep all of your items together wherever you choose to go and explore.
- Unique Backpack Design for running and cutting down on kit needed.
- Designed for safety and storage when swimming outdoors.
- High visibility 28litre bag allows for storage of a wide range of products and then floats alongside you during swim.
- Perfect for swim-run training or racing

The 28L bag is highly recommended for all open water swimmers who need to carry their kit/valuables when going for a swim, or anyone who wants extra visibility when swimming in the open water.
When the bag is lying flat the internal area of the bag measures 50cm x 35cm and has a 28 litre capacity which leaves plenty of room for dry clothes, towel, flip flops etc.
