  1. the 25l sack is a really good bag

  2. I’d have confidence in taking it out in the harshest of weather with my most treasured kit inside and that says a lot.

  3. This rucksack comes in various sizes and is ideal for stand-up paddle boarding, or kayaking with a sit-on-top canoe. It is waterproof and highly robust and can be easily carried to a campsite or beach barbecue location, in addition to being used in water. Ease of Use 5, Ease to Carry 4, Robustness 4, Waterproofness 5, Overall 5. Highly versatile and good value for money. This is a really good piece of kit for any water-based activity that is equally valuable on land for storing any wet items and stopping them from leaking into your dry kit.

  4. Whether you’re packing up after a festival, commuting in the rain or canyoning down a waterfall, this is the waterproof backpack that will protect your gear. 4 stars. ‘Great Gadget’.

  5. This genuinely stormproof pack by the waterproof gear experts is designed to keep the wet stuff out at all times. It has taped seams so water can’t seep in. It also has a large waterproof internal pocket – big enough for a laptop – and a smaller transparent pocket for keeping those little items together. You get into it through a clever roll-seal, which is waterproof and doubles up as a grab handle. There are large, easy-access mesh pockets on either side for the stuff that can survive a soaking (i.e. water bottles). With a full five-year guarantee, it’s a no-brainer for someone always out in the wet.

  6. This bag has been, and still is such a lifesaver.

  7. Great bag. My favorite of all my drybags. I like the double layer of protection. I kept almost all my camera gear in it. I also really liked the extra-large water bottle holders on the side.

  8. Thanks for a great product! I used your backpack to carry about $4,000 worth of camera gear, jacket, water bottle and lunch while fishing each day in Alaska. I fished through rain storms and even fell in the stream once… everything stayed dry. Great insurance for the outdoor photographer. Best of all the camera can be accessed quickly.

  9. I’m writing to tell you guys about how much of a pleasure it was being able to use your products throughout SE Asia for a year. I found myself in so many situations where it saved my gear, my friends gear, and they were always surprised when I took it into the water… plenty of compliments.

  10. My Aquapac Wet & Dry Backpack is by far the best quality river bag I have ever had.
