The best thing for me about this bag? All of it.
I’ve tried IKEA bags, large shoppers, rucksacks and plastic buckets. Believe me, they all work but have limitations... if you really are a wild swimmer, and want your dry robe to stay dry, your bra and pants to stay shore line and your feet to mud free - this bag is for you."

"I have been an open water swimmer and adventurer for many moons now and not forgetting an ice breaking.
I have been through so much equipment testing all sorts of stuff & bags for all kinds of activities but never found a good wild swimming bag that helps with many of activities around the water UNTIL NOW.
The Turtleback bag by Swim Feral is by far the best bag out there for any wild swimmer. The bag is really easy to get into with cold hands and super mega easy to pack, including the quick draw string to close.
I actually have massive shoulders and find a lot of bags dig into me but I was so happy to find the Turtleback very comfy.
The easy access bag is super tough but light and great for anything needed for the swim, like my robe to glove, socks, food, cooking stove, axe and spare swim gear and even my puppys stuff (toys, nibbles, paddywck) oh and my camera gear haha. With all that in the bag I was so impressed with how the bag felt.
I do class myself as a bit of an eco-warrior, trying to do my bit. I'm buzzing that these bags are also made on solar powered machines and feature recycled materials but to top it off it's made in the UK; just epic!
I have taken the bag on some good test runs and pushed it a fair bit with colder swims and the one thing I love, maybe the most, is the ability to stand in it after cleaning sandy toes.
Moona my little puppy's favorite thing is to sleep in it while I swim. #dogproof.
Say good bye to rucksacks and shopping bags for your swims, Swim Feral have finally arrived in our lives. These lovely, fellow wild swimmers are making these with love for the water and people of the water."

Easy drawcord entry and a huge internal pocket to prevent things from floating around.
