Dilly Bags

A dilly bag is a cloth draw string bag, preferably cotton because it breathes allowing your gear to stay dry without going mouldy!
The drawstring stops dust and bugs getting in and allows the bag to be hung up in the fresh air as well as stopping the gear inside from falling out!
The dilly bag is used to transport and store your camp eating gear.
Inside your dilly bag should be:

All the contents should be made of strong material such as metal or melamine to avoid breakage and should be CLEARLY LABELLED!!!!!


The easiest way to make a dilly bag is from a pillowcase or cotton bag from the supermarket with drawstring sewn in.

The contents for Dilly bags can be easily purchased form the Scout outdoor centre
