I like roll top bags, but don't get the ones with the windows.. either get complete clear vinyl or complete colored vinyl, NO WINDOWS.. all the window ones I've had leak.

for a bag or duffel, that one posted by Habanero Joe looks like it's perfect combination of roll top and duffel combined.

I bought an Ozark Trail Cooler and even though it doesn't hold ice as good as the yetti, I'd say so far the zippers are holding up great and seem to be sealed. That looks like a good low cost option.
I'm not sure about the newer BassPro bags, but the one I'm using is all plastic zipper and zipper pull, going about 8 years now and no issues

The fold over and buckle style are really nice though, simple design and going on 4 years with the one I posted, and that thing can hold a ton of stuff, enough clothes, towels and junk for a family of 5

For zippers, I started using this, below, on my Isinglass windows (they can be a pain with heavy offshore salt), prior to using this I just ran a bar of soap over the zippers or candle wax, which would work pretty well for a few months at a time, but this stuff seems to last much longer.

I also use it on all my other zippers, snaps, life jackets, bags, whatever zips or snaps lol, I think any silicone grease will work though, but one tube of this will go a long way

Same here, I keep a couple of small dry boxes maybe 4 from Wal-Mart, on my console I think Plano makes them.

My Note 8 is waterproof, but I use these for my wife's cellphone and a couple of other devices, works pretty good and you can still operate your phone thru the bag

SeaLline bags. I have a large zippered bag since 91 that has never leaked and been thru a lot. Have one of their smaller rolled top duffels. IT IS GREAT AS WELL. Water has never been in my big one and I have kept it below deck for months at a time. When zipped air does not escape if you push on it. Zipper lasts if you keep it lubricated but more importantly always keep it closed. Referring to the zip duffle....expensive but like I said I have had my big one and it has been abused for 28 years now.

I just ordered the lightweight plastic stuff off amazon not the heavy rubber mats
Do you happen to have a link?

I have these tiles. They come in a pack of 12. They're 1' x 1' and easy to trim with a sharp utility knife. I used them under my ice chest in my last boat. Water flows under them easily. Using them in storage areas to get stuff off the floor and help it stay dry is a great idea. They're not cheap but they're rugged and more than sturdy enough for the task.

Back to the duffle topic-
Penn has a promotion going now for a free one with I think $200. purchase.
I got one of theirs, backpack type on a similar deal about 3-4 years ago and am very happy with it. You don't have to buy from them, just redeem coupon with them.
