Q: WHAT SIZE ARE DECKBAGZ SUP GEAR BAGS?
A: Well, according to one of our DeckBagZ owners... "big enough to hold a pretty good size flounder!" (*not intended for flounder storage)
Our deck bags are 18" Long, 13" - 14" Wide, and about 5" tall.
Q: WHERE ARE DECKBAGZ MADE?
A: DeckBagZ are proudly made by hand in the USA in the Clearwater Florida area. We are truly a Florida grown company!
Q: ARE DECKBAGZ GEAR BAGS WATERPROOF?
A: DeckBagZ owners bring electronics and things like keys or wallet in our included DeckBagZ Roll Top Dry Bag. Our bags love water, and are totally water resistant and splashproof. So, think of DeckBagZ as a place to keep your waterproof stuff. DeckBagZ gear bags are breathable, and don't collect moisture or condensation, resulting in mildew and dampness issues, like heat sealed vinyl bags do.
Q: ARE DECKBAGZ SAFE FOR SALT WATER USE?
A: Yes, definitely. They were designed and tested here on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and we have some of the saltiest water anywhere! No worries. Just rinse the heck out of those zippers people!
Q: I ALWAYS BREAK ZIPPERS ON MY GEAR. ARE THE ZIPPERS RUGGED ENOUGH TO HANDLE ROUGH USE?
A: These are the same zippers used on big yacht canvas. We use the best available parts in our bags, including YKK marine grade zippers. Plus, these zippers are the loop chain kind, not the toothy kind. You know... the really slidey type zippers.
Q: HOW DO I MOUNT MY DECK BAG TO MY PADDLE BOARD?
A: Our deck bag features 4 snap hooks, one on each corner, to attach your bag to your board's rigging. If you need, we also offer optional mounting kits like "EZ Plugs" TM permanent adhesive mounts, or our DeckBagZ Suction Cup Kit for boards with a glossy finish. Check our "Rigging and Gear" section for our optional rigging kits, if you need any of these to mount to your board.
Q: CAN I USE THESE ON MY KAYAK TOO?
A: Most definitely, but only if you want one of the coolest kayaks in your area!
Q: HOW DO I CARE FOR MY DECKBAGZ?
A: Easy. Rinse out with fresh water if used in salt. A little mild soapy water and scrub with soft cloth if dirty. We usually just hit them with the garden hose as we are rinsing off everything else. Pay special attention to rinsing the zippers out for longer life!
Q: WILL THIS BAG KEEP MY DRINKS COLD?
A: DeckBagZ are made from vinyl and 2mm neoprene wetsuit material. So they do help to keep water bottles reasonably cool, even here in the hot Florida summertime.
Q: THESE BAGS REALLY HAND MADE IN AMERICA?
A: Yep. We design and build all of our products here. We oversee quality control personally. We stress test every piece by hand. We sew them with the best 100% UV resistant thread money can buy. Best materials. Best parts. Best hardware. Made by hand by paddlers just like you. Happy Paddling and Mahalo! (means gratitude and respect to you)
