The black Adventure Backpack (Black) from Overboard is designed to keep your gear safe in wet conditions. Its welded base is rated for quick submersion in small streams and puddles. It's made from a durable PVC tarpaulin and will also prevent dirt, dust and sand associated with traditional trail travel from contaminating the contents.

The welded base provides even more protection as will the front zippered pocket that holds even more accessories. For the avid outdoor enthusiast who isn't afraid to get his feet wet, this backpack is well-named. The Adventure Backpack is just what it claims to be - a way to get in the middle of it while keeping your gear safe and dry.

The two main compartments give you more than adequate room for your basics including a padded 17" (43.2 cm) widescreen laptop storage area that will also hold your MP3 player. The other pocket is for keeping documents, files and other collateral material safe. In addition to the large pockets, you'll have that front zippered accessory pocket, a pencil case with touch fastened attachment, mesh cable pockets and additional room for more accessories.

For even more safety, the pack has been provided with front and back reflective straps - perfect for late afternoon or evening hiking. The padded pack straps are supported by a strong and comfy, ergonomic top carry handle. Side compression straps permit you to adjust the footprint of the pack as well as provide a way to tighten it up on the trail. The zippers have handy pull tabs. The Adventure Backpack is a reasonably-priced pack that combines good storage space with features that make it appealing for a day trip in the country.

      Comments about OverBoard Adventure Backpack (Black):

      I've had numerous items get ruined by getting caught in sudden downpours, even though they were stowed inside my backpack. It's a relief to now know that a bit of moisture won't render any magazines, books, newspapers or written reports into a wet, gloppy mess. I can't imagine why so few backpacks are water resistant.

        Comments about OverBoard Adventure Backpack (Black):

        I bought this backpack because I teach in Bogota, Colombia and I needed a backpack that would keep my laptop and student work dry. I paid a good amount of money for this backpack and had it shipped to my mother in law's in the US. Then I took it back to Colombia and used it for the first time on a trip within Colombia. It was packing for that trip that I discovered that the front zipper was broken and partially not attached to the bag. Then, after using the backpack to and from work for 2 weeks, I come to find that the weatherproofing on the bottom of the backpack was coming off. I would not recommend this backpack to anyone. The quality of construction and workmanship is horrible. And now that I'm back in Colombia and not heading back to the US anytime soon, I'm stuck with a backpack that I can't exchange or return. Though B&H doesn't make this product, I'm very disappointed that they sold me such a poor product.
