Miles covered/time: 5500/22 months
What’s good? There have been so many times this waterproof bag has been put to the test in foul, wet conditions that I no longer worry about the contents; safe in the knowledge they aren’t going to get wet. When I first got the bag back in 2009 I needed proof the bold “100% dry” claims were real. They are. The combination of the roll top, Velcro and welded tarpaulin construction has been resistant to everything. The bag has a seven litre capacity and with integrated laptop sleeve and pockets inside. The shoulder strap also has an adjustable hip strap that stops it moving about. The shoulder strap can be swopped from left to right depending on your preference.
What’s not? It takes some time to bed in and getting stuff in and out can be a bit of a pain but that’s a small price to pay for such confidence and quality.
