Generally, all dry bags and boxes can be divided into three main categories: water-resistant, waterproof and submersible. Water-resistant bags can be splashed but will leak if immersed in water completely. These are best for storing a change of clothes or your wet gear after the dive. Waterproof bags can be splashed as well as temporarily dunked, which provides additional protection in case the bag falls into the water. Submersible bags and boxes, as the name suggests, can actually be submerged while still keeping their contents dry.
As for the closure methods, most dry bags are either zipper seal or roll top. In zipper sealed bags the zipper is pressed and sealed to keep out water and moisture, whereas with a roll-top the bag is folded over on itself multiple times to create a waterproof closure.
Some other useful features to look for in a dry bag are abrasion, UV and extreme temperatures resistance.
