Despite trail rumors of fabrics ‘blowing out’, a hole in a fabric is the result of contact with some external factor. Rough surfaces may produce abrasion damage (‘fuzzy’ edges), sharp objects may result in a puncture which spreads as a tear (along the lines of the weave), or as a cut (the line of damage goes across yarns).
Modern technology means that weave errors in production are a thing of the past.
Damage to products is not a warranty issue per se. Depending on the type of dry bag you have, and the size of the hole, it may well be possible to repair it permanently using a urethane sealant called Seam Grip +WP. Please visit our Blog Post "How to Repair Holes in Your Gear" for step-by-step instructions.
