Our Brand Manager, Justyn Thompson, met up with Angela Schiavone from Examiner.com at MacWorld 2012. After checking our some of our staple products and some new, Justyn sent Angela off with an Ocoee and a Grid to get her take on our bags. Here is her write up about the Ocoee and the ways in which she benefits from Watershed’s legendary waterproof seal.
I wanted to share a customer review and some photos from the Canadian back country. Matt Scharl called us a few weeks ago inquiring with a bit of skepticism whether our patented ZipDry seal would still function as easily in -15 degree F or lower temps. While we assured Matt that the coast guard uses our bags through out Alaska, that we have customers from the Arctic Circle who heavily depend on our bags, as well as Antarctica, he needed to see for himself. A big thank you to Matt! We always appreciate hearing and seeing our array of customers’ uses and experiences with Watershed products. Please read below Matt’s experience and check out his photos.
Just wanted to give you a note regarding the Animas Backpack I took to Ontario on my two week snowshoeing and snowmobiling trip to the back country.
I had no worries regarding the legendary waterproofness of Watersheds bags, but would it hold up to temperatures expected below -20 deg F. I was concerned that the material would become brittle and stiff like so many others have when the temperature dips. It didn’t take long to test this, the first morning dawned at -25 deg. Midday with the temperatures still -15 I had to get my second pair of gloveliners out of the bag, to my great comfort the bag opened with no stiffness, it performed perfectly relieving any stress I had in choosing the Animas as my sole bag for 2 weeks in the Canadian bush.
Whether it was tossed in the snow, strapped to the snowmachine or my back, the Animas backpack performed flawlessly regardless of temperature.
Thanks for making a great drybag, finally one for all seasons!
At the 2012 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada we talk with hundreds of people, and you never know what will come from conversations and sales. This year we had great reviews of some of our newer products, such as the Clutch and the Grid, but also reviews of our staple products.
The Ocoee has been around since the beginning of Watershed, and we are always thrilled to hear how new people are getting along with their new-found waterproof, submersible gear.
Here is a brief write up from Jim Shepherd over at The Outdoor Wire, scroll down about half way to reach the part about Watershed’s Ocoee duffel:
