Our Story

Sagebrush Dry has incorporated the skills developed working with other companies into our own unique line of water-safe bags. We have the technical knowledge, experience, and most importantly, the commitment to quality, which enables us to design and manufacture the most functional, durable and technical water-safe gear bags on the market today. We are constantly adding new products to the line, so look for future catalog updates.

By combining the highest quality urethane coated fabrics, cutting edge zipper innovations, and state of the art radio frequency and hot air welding technologies Sagebrush Dry is creating a new dimension in water-safe bags. No matter what your sport, if it involves keeping your stuff dry, our bags will allow your gear to stay dry while you are out longer and playing harder than ever before! 

Sagebrush Dry Gear was founded in the early 2000s in Dillon, Montana, by Robbie and Elaine Garrett. When the company’s contract for making waterproof gear for a large outdoor gear company was diverted to factories outside of the US, the founders decided to move the company to Southeast Alaska, where they could live off grid and create bags in one of the rainiest places on earth. The company is currently located in Kake, Alaska, a small fishing town that is only accessible by boat or plane. 

Current owner John Peterka relocated to Kake from Bozemam MT in 2017 after working for various outdoor companies in the industry. He was drawn to Sagebrush for the craftsmanship and high quality American made gear and way of life that Kake offers.
