Touchscreen Dry Bags

DriStore Pouch Offer a Reusable and Waterproof Bag For Travel Items

— July 20, 2016 — Art & Design
Often times consumers reach for disposable plastic bags to keep items such as smartphones, cash or books safeguarded from moisture, but the DriStore dry bags offer a much more environmentally friendly reusable version that is also conveniently tech-compatible. The plastic lining is engineered to keep the elements out while still allowing users to text through the bag onto touchscreen devices.

The DriStore bags are constructed out of triple-polymer with tightly knit fibres that provide a waterproof barrier in up to 10-meters of liquid. The bags are compact and able to house multiple items such as pens, paper, wallets and small tech gadgets. The bag can be used to organize necessities and keep them dry in either rainy day or outdoor camping settings.
Trend Themes
1. Reusable Waterproof Bags - Opportunity to create eco-friendly alternatives to single-use plastic bags and meet the growing demand for sustainable travel products.
2. Tech-enabled Waterproofing - Opportunity to integrate technology with waterproofing like touchscreen compatibility to create new products and enhance usability.
3. Multipurpose Dry Bags - Opportunity to create versatile dry bags that can hold multiple items and cater to different use cases like camping, beach, or travel.
Industry Implications
1. Outdoor & Adventure Retail - Industry players can cater to adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts by expanding the product range into the dry bags category with innovative features and designs.
2. Technology & Accessories - With the rise of waterproof technology, tech companies can partner with dry bag manufacturers to create products that cater to outdoor or beach activities.
3. Eco-friendly Products - Sustainability-focused companies can tap into the growing demand for eco-friendly travel products with reusable dry bags, made from eco-friendly materials.
