The drybag is waterproof as long as it is used correctly, however, Puffin recommend placing electronic items inside a waterproof bag before placing inside the drybag. The Billy Eco15 is not a lifesaving device and is for use by competent swimmers. It is not designed to be submerged.
Biodegradable TPU is a polyester fabric that has been laminated using a process which is solvent free and low in toxicity which is claimed to be better for the environment compared to PVC. Both the TPU laminate and the polyester fabric the laminate is applied to are biodegradable, when composted they will biodegrade in 3-5 years. The plastic pieces must be removed before composting.
