What experts liked
Chest strap across the sternum secures the backpack on the wearer and adds to the stability of the pack. Even when traversing rugged terrain, the backpack won’t slide from side to side. Both the padded back panel and the padded shoulder straps include breathable mesh fabric for added comfort. The mesh helps to keep the wearer’s back cool and dry because it allows for air flow to dry the sweat.
- Gearing Out
One of the best waterproof backpacks for hiking. An excellent choice for kayaking, boating, or in extreme wet conditions, this backpack is built to withstand extreme conditions. Coming in two different sizes you can get the backpack that best suits your needs. This isn’t your typical dry bag. Instead, you can enjoy a splash-proof front pocket for safe storage of small items such as your keys and wallet. Inside the dry bag, you will find an additional small pocket which allows you to better organize your storage.
- Globo Turf
Versatile-choice anyone can make, thanks to its extensive range of sizes. The closure is made easy due to the roll-down style of this Earth Pak bag, thus ensuring maximum security by holding the bag shut. Waterproof. Compact.
- In Stash
Ideal for travelers who don’t want to worry about water damage during their outdoor adventures. It’s roomy enough to pack for a weekend but small enough to use as a carry-on, and the sturdy PVC material protects everything inside, from camera equipment to clothing. Sternum and waist straps help you balance the load. Bonus: The bag comes with a waterproof case that fits smartphones up to 6.5 inches (measured diagonally).
- Smarter Travel
It also contains an inner pocket to help you organize your belongings and a smaller exterior pocket for items you need to reach quickly.
- The Backpack Guide
Has padding on the straps and along the back to keep you feeling comfortable during those long days on the trail. It also has a buckle at the sternum that helps distribute the weight of your load evenly to prevent undue strain.

What experts didn't like
A few reviewers commented that the splash proof front pocket was not durable and ripped away from the backpack.
- Gearing Out
Not for long distances. Cell phone bag may leak. Rolled down latches cause frustration.
