Flexitank  (Australia) has created a sensible, cost effective and useful waterproof system to protect sensitive equipment stored and transported in Ute trays.

Tradies and couriers alike have experienced the horror of realising goods and tools in the Ute tray have been soaked by rain or water seepage. Flexitank (Australia) applied their unique design and manufacturing techniques to this challenge and have come up with new waterproof bags. The Flexitank waterproof duffle bags use the latest hot air and high frequency welding technology and are designed to sit comfortably within the wall height of most Ute trays.

The waterproof bags come in standard 200, 300 and 400 litre capacities, or can be made to order. They are designed to be the perfect encasement to transport sensitive items, as a secondary protection layer for open top tool boxes, and even transport the shopping home, all without any modification to the existing tonneau or hardtop mounted tray system.

Gavin Hodgins, Flexitank’s Operations Manager, expanded on this to say, “Our new waterproof bags really are 100% waterproof with no internal stitching components thanks to high frequency and hot air welding for all the critical joins. The bags are made from 750gsm reinforced PVC fabric, which is rot and mould resistant, and UV Stabilised. Then you have a fold over flap design and fully hemmed magnetic strip seals to lock out water, keeping the goods inside as dry as they went in!”

The Ute duffle bags have stainless steel 50mm Dee rings and integrated nylon 'parachute strap' side wall supports that make installation and cargo securing very easy. When they aren’t in use, the bags fold down approx 1/10th of their full size for convenient storage. The Flexitank team have worked hard to create a waterproof and durable bag that is will fit in a majority of aluminium fold down ute/pickup tray backs.

Like the rest of the Flexitank range, the waterproof Ute duffle bags are 100% Australian made using the latest technologies and stringent internal quality control measures. Backed by Flexitank’s 12-month warranty and now in stock, the waterproof Ute duffle makes a perfect accompaniment to any Ute tray.

Gavin stated, “With the added protection these bags provide, and the fact that you aren’t losing goods and tools to the weather, the return on investment is pretty fast!”
