Waterproof Backpack

 

I use a sturdy frame backpack, combined with a waterproof bag of 60 liters. The system carries well and keeps your gear crispy dry, even after two weeks of persistant rain. I have even used the system as a floatationdevice to cross a river. The bag is attached to the frame with adjustable straps¬†(home made)¬†to carry any bag with appropriate size. You can also attach side bags, showed on on the ‘Clothes and Boots’ page. The bag can be placed directly into a canoe or kayak.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tip

Put rubber bands around your hipbelt, for more grip around your hips.
