For most riders, the list includes wetsuit, water shoes, towels, a dry clothes, snacks, first aid kit, and other small accessories like sunglasses, phone.

Backpack Style

I am kind of person, who loves jet skiing along with hiking, this is where I prefer having backpack-style bag for touring. They are so good at carrying full luggage even at longer distance, this is due to two shoulder straps that make weight distribution equally.

I’m currently using Geckobrands paddler 45L made from 600D polyester with a waterproof coating, which have withstand most of my thrilling tours. This 45L capacity have ample space to carry wetsuits, towels and other accessories. Thanks to its large external zipper pocket, accessing my GPS, Phone and other items came very handy.

Duffle Style

Duffle are probably the most classic and simple PWC bag option. Easy to access gear, and one hand operation to carry makes thing simple. One of business who provide jet ski duffle bag is sealine brand, this company comes from Cascade designs who are among popular seller in PWC gears. 

Sealine has enough of experience in dealing with waterproof marine gears, and duffel pro zip bag is a product to describe their expertise with full submersion up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. It is very well optimised for jet skiing and features like abrasion-resistant fabric and excellent zipper quality. With multiple sizes from 40L up to 100L, you can find the perfect capacity.

Lastly, for those who need high capacity, cargo bags are a great choice. They can fit 50L+ when expanded and often feature high quality wheels to roll the bag. The only limitation is that cargo bags can be hefty for one person to carry when loaded fully. But for family or group trips, they’re better.
