WHAT IT IS: OGIO DRY DAY BAG
No matter which UTV we take out on a day ride or weekend trip, space is always at a premium. Since this is the case, we tend to look for products and accessories that serve dual purposes, and the Ogio Dry Day bag is just that. This is a place to keep drinks at the ready, as well as carry snacks and other items, keeping them dry and protected.
At 13.3 inches wide, 7.4 inches deep and 22.8 inches tall, it’s a soft EVA-molded bag with four separate compartments. It comes in any color you want as long as that it’s black. You can buy the bags through their website (www.ogiopowersports.com) for $179.99.
The bottom compartment has a moisture-lock gasket and is PVC-lined. It is large enough to hold a dozen 12-ounce cans plus ice. Up top is a slightly larger compartment to hold dry items, such as snacks or a small jacket. Two small pockets up top or in front can safely hold small items such as cell phones, car keys or sunglasses within easy reach. The backpack-style straps and MOLLE loops allow numerous possibilities for stowage. We’ve already clipped a small air gauge and multi-tool on the outside. It fits great behind the seat of a Kawasaki Teryx or Polaris RZR Pro XP. We found you can attach it to the roll cage and one cargo tie-down hook at the front of any cargo bed in nearly any UTV. It also sits great on the floorboard or any empty seat or seat-belted in for that matter.
We organized enough food and drinks so four people could live out an all-day adventure and not go hungry. The cool portion stayed cold with eight drinks, some sandwich fixings and ice. Up top, the bag held bread and a bag of chips without either getting squished. Since we could use the bag as a backpack, on our test day, we carried it about a mile away from the UTV and hiked to a great overlook. Any accessory that can add to the adventure of our day without costing an arm and a leg or taking up too much space is a keeper in our book. The price is the only reason we couldn’t give this great product five stars. But, these days, $200 for a cooler is not out of the question.
