If you want a 100% waterproof back pack for you! It’s made from tear resistant waterproof PVC tarpaulin with electro-welded seams. I left it outside in an 18-hour downpour for a test: In the morning not a drop of water penetrated ether the main bag or the front pocket with the waterproof zip.

It’s fluorescent yellow so offers great visibility for car drivers, and I found the adjustable shoulder straps kept the bag very comfy on a recent 300+ mile journey (and I’m not normally a fan of rucksacks). Make sure the roll-top is pulled down and secured by the side straps, or it can act as a little bit of a sail and catch the wind. It’s a great rucksack and a good way to ensure all your possessions arrive safe and dry on any journey.
