What are the Best Waterproof Backpacks?
At Aquapac, we've been making high-quality, professional-grade waterproof cases for nearly 40 years, and we're incredibly proud of the construction, durability and comfort of our products. The best waterproof backpacks are those that are really comfortable and can protect your belongings from anything the weather can throw at you, over long periods of time. This means they include handy features like internal and external pockets, quality fabrics and material, good capacity, adjustable shoulder straps and waist straps, a water bottle pocket and other internal pockets that give you many options when it comes to packing your gear. At Aquapac, we want to make sure that our products are the best in the business, and offer fully waterproof backpacks in a variety of sizes, with all the features you want and expect from professional-grade products.
While PVC is commonly used for waterproofing fabrics, it isn't always best for use for professional-grade waterproofing, as it can crack and warp in very cold conditions. At Aquapac, we use 100% PVC-free fabrics, which allow our products to stay strong and maintain their structural integrity even under adverse weather conditions. Our PU-coated fabric also comes with taped seams, which means that areas that are prone to leaks, such as external pockets or internal zip pockets, are fully covered and you don't have to worry about water or rain getting into your backpack. Many of our packs also feature a roll-top seal, which is easy to use, quick to seal and offers excellent protection against wind, rain, sand, water and much more, no matter where you're headed.

If you're in a rush, a simple fold-over will keep all your goods safe and dry, but if you're venturing into the water or on a more intensive adventure, roll the top to get a completely watertight seal.
