You don't need thick rubbery dry bags. I have Sea to Summit bags and they are waterproof and very very lightweight. I still prefer my thick Ortlieb Roller classics though. For long term they will wear better, but I do strap on a Sea to Summit dry bag or two when I tour. I could sse them working but I doubt they would last as long as the Ortliebs.
