The black 25L Wet & Dry Backpack from Aquapac is definitely not for a couch potato. This is a pack for the person who takes his outdoor time seriously and is not afraid of the elements. It doesn't matter if you're a "day tripper" fighting your way through the crowds at an outdoor train platform or heading out for a day hiking through a rain forest, this bag will get your gear through it spot-on dry. Put your lunch inside the pack and make a day of it – even if you just want to stop, write a letter, take notes or send an email.
The pack is made of TPU, nylon/polyester fabric that is abrasion resistant for use in cold temperatures up to -45°C. At 100% PVC free, the bag won't crack when it's cold. No need to worry about the seams since water won't get through even at the sewn points. Slip on the trail into a puddle or brook? No problem. Get up and keep walking. Your equipment and clothes will remain dry. The Wet & Dry Pack seals via a 3x roll-seal system that closes tightly and protects your gear against the elements. The roll-seal is reinforced with 2 buckles, and 2 string tabs for a secure closure.
The full-sized internal pocket is waterproof with space to separate both wet and dry clothes. The inside pockets are yellow which makes it easy to see into the bag - easy to spy small items stuffed down at the bottom. You'll also have a dedicated key pocket that makes organizing small items easier - and that will save you time when you need to grab them quickly.
Outside, are numerous features making this bag even more appealing. Carabiner lashes permit you to attach anything from a map case to a water bottle - or even safety equipment for those tough scrambles or climbs. A removable, combination back support and seat comes in handy when you're out there and don't want to sit on the wet ground. For night travel, there's an integrated light-lash on which you can hook a guide light or even your helmet that will enable you to remain hands-free while hiking. In addition, there's a reflective logo print that will warn anyone behind you that there's someone in front of them.
For traveling comfort, the Wet & Dry Pack features comfortable sternum straps and a removable waist belt. The mesh straps are breathable as well as being lightweight and comfy. For the quick grab item that won't require stopping to open the pack, there are external airline-style mesh pockets that will hold a water bottle. For hydration, there's a separate pocket that can be used for an optional, user-supplied hydration bladder - add in a bladder and clip the hose to the included carabiner to stay hydrated while on the trail.
