13 minutes in a torrent attached to a boat wrapped on a boulder in a Class IV rapid

Just back from a 5 day trip were we wiped out big on a Class IV. I had two of these bags on the boat. They were tied in through the shoulder straps. That allows quite a bit of movement on a torrent. For the 13 minutes it took to free the boat one of them was mostly out of the water and one of them was mostly under. The one under the water took on a slight amount of water, like enough to see that the end of my clothes bag was damp, but the clothes inside were still dry. The maker is right when they claim they aren't for submersion, but they are almost that good, and good enough for what we did. Despite the pounding neither bag was damaged in any way.
