A guest video review by Giles Babbidge, a professional photographer and keen outdoor enthusiast.
Technical rucksacks are all very well, but sometimes you just want something that will keep your kit safe and dry throughout the year, no matter what the elements throw your way. Aquapac’s Wet & Dry Backpack does just that and, when you dig a bit deeper, proves itself to be something of a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Summary: Weighing just 640g, this is a no frills bag, but one which lets you know it has a technical pedigree. Its 25 litre capacity, hidden within a subtle PU-coated, taped-seam exterior, is more than enough for a day on the hills, with plenty of places to clip and stash your essential items. The tried and tested 3-roll seal closure system, offering 100% waterproof protection, has never failed me and the list of neat little tech features including:
removable back support;
separate internal dry bag section;
breathable mesh shoulder straps;
mesh bottle pockets;
and removable waist strap,
give a reassuring confidence that this bag will take whatever you want to throw at it.
