I've only just received this and not yet tried it in the wet, but the solidity of build and thoughtfulness of the design makes me confident I made a good choice. The seams are properly welded, and the straps and comfort considerations look like they came from a bag 4x the price. I'm looking forward to riding my motorbike in the rain and properly testing its waterproofing soon.
Had it for a while now and still going strong. Waterproof is an understatement. I've been swimming in the ocean with this bag for a while now and no wear or tear what so ever. I do take care of it though.
Treat it well and it will treat you well keeping water out
This is an Outstanding bad that does everything it claims. I have been using it every day on the bike for the commute to work and it has been flawless both in comfort, security and waterproofing. Some days it's filled to the max with laptop, clothes etc some days it's just got a shirt and my lunch but performs just as well.
I have been really looking after it as I was concerned about puncturing or damaging it but the material seems extreamly resiliant and the continuous folding and unfolding of the top does not seem to be causing any issues.
Very happy and would recommend this if you are looking to garentee your contents make it safely and dry to your destination.
Used as a holiday backpack for places where sudden downpours occur to carry photo equipment and day hike sundries. Worked well with no leaks even when wading in deep mountain pools. Big enough for day hike bits such as camera, swimming gear, passport, money lunch and water bottles. Inside zip pocket was useful for small bits like money phone and passport. Straps where comfortable and the ability to either close by folding 3/4 times and clip to either sides or in the more traditional back on self style meant capacity could be maximised or used with a much smaller load without affecting waterproof capabilities. Will be using in UK as well as future holidays as is useful for UK weather and/or in areas where water is at risk of seeping into your bag and damaging contents (cameras in my case). Obviously you will need to be aware of note using bag for sharp objects and making sure you don’t rub over external objects such as barnacles etc to the point that the material gets holes in. Always check for damage before trips as over time I am sure accidental holes will occur but initial condition and material, if bag is closed correctly, has been totally waterproof.
It has passed the test of kayaking so far. Very pack able, no compartments except a small zipped pocket maybe passport or small wallet size. Side pockets are small and not very well made so I wouldn’t keep there valuable things...I don’t know how long shoulders straps will last because comparing to normal backpacks like The north face or tactical 5.11 they don’t look very reliable. I want mention about chest and waist straps quality...Having a lot of experience in hiking and scrambling I know I wouldn’t take this backpack for canyoning which would include hiking, scrambling, climbing and swimming because I think is too weak. It is ok for having things in it when is laying in the boat or kayak. It is my first waterproof backpack so I can’t say much more about it. Can recommend it only if you don’t consider harder trips. It seams to be waterproof so far.
Purchased after doing lots of research (US Amazon has lots of very positive reviews for this product). Given the positive reviews and competitive price I opted for this one over more expensive, branded products. Money well spent and it performed as expected on two capsizes - contents remained perfectly dry. Has in internal zipped pocket and was easy to carry slung over shoulder. Felt comfortable enough when worn as rucksack. All in all a very good product.
