    I am packing my stuff to go home, and was wondering if putting my camera bag inside of a plastic bag, to protect from the sand, is a bad thing.

    That should give it some protection from the sand. One thing to consider is condensation. If you pack it up and seal the bag while in a hot climate (especially hot & humid) then there will be moisture in the bag. If & when it cools off, that moisture will condensate...probably on the inside of the bag but maybe in & on the camera.

    Probably not too much of an issue if the air is hot & dry and it's only a little bit of air.

    a nice little desiccant pack should take car of any moisture issue you may have. Put on in the bag before you seal it and you should be good to go.

    Thanks guys. I have a few of the little silica gel packs from stuff I've bought. They should work nicely.
