Cabela's canoe thwart /storage bags

Has anyone bought / used the Cabela’s thwart or bow or under seat storage bags? Opinions?

They seem reasonably priced, ($14.99 to $24.99 on sale for either bow, under seat, or thwart bag), but sometimes cheap is not good, and good is not cheap.

(If you want to see them, go to and type in canoe storage. The link was too long to post.)

I’ll second the previous comments. I have a friend who purchased two of them last summer. They’re fine for keeping stuff drfy in the rain but don’t depend on them in a capsize. Both leaked alot.
