Wanted to share this find from Walmart for under $7 USD (no commercial affiliation)

I was looking for something other than a ziplock baggie for my passport and pilgrims passport. I found this Outdoor dry pouch comes in different colors and which can be used for pilgrims passport/ passports/ money or whatever you want to put in it.

On the Camino Frances although the ziplock baggie worked for a time, eventually the bag became worn and the edges of the bag split open. In the end I found the bag cumbersome to open and close. This Outdoor dry pouch is my replacement and weighs about the same as a ziplock. Hope someone finds it useful

Thanks for this. The new Canadian passports (I got one of the 10-year ones--- a sign of optimism??? or of over-confidence in Providence??) have a chip in them, and too much moisture can fry them.

You are welcomed. I am renewing my passport next week and it seems this will work for both of us

I'm going to head to Walmart tomorrow and check this out! My daughter's passport got soaked in the rain and it was almost rejected when she tried to cross the US border. Thanks for the post and the pictures.
