Waterproof backpacks are very functional to say the least, they are a variety of places and situations where they can come in most handy.
We can look at a list of some very good waterproof backpacks they features and benefits and then maybe we can start to answer the question, what is the best waterproof backpack?
Ultimately I think that it depends on what you would need the backpack for, will you be in an urban setting? a hiking setting? a fishing setting, water sports setting? a beach setting? or some other setting?
First answering the above questions can lead us to a clearer answer about the best waterproof back pack for ourselves.
This list that we chose to review is a good starting point.
The SEVENTY2, Best waterproof backpack for Preppers.
This piece in my humble opinion is a work of art. The entire piece with fully loaded
The SEVENTY2 survival system states that 95% of all survival situations are resolved in the first 72 hours. This backpack is said to be the world’s first fully integrated system designed to guide you through an unexpected emergency situation.
In this section I will be discussing the insert that is included in the backpack, however the next section goes over the amazing ‘shell’ of the SEVENTY2. There is so much going on here that discussing the backpack in parts makes perfect sense.
The insert is organized and color coded, when it is pulled out of the shell it reveals eight durable gear pouches that contain survival tools and products.
Printed on the insert are highly legible icons and instruction guides for using the tools and products.
What’s in the SEVENTY2?
- RZ M5 Air Filtration mask, Goggles.
- 3-in-1 Radio( flashlight, tri-band, smartphone charger), Flashlight.
- Datrex: High calorie food bars.
- Collapsible Water Bottle, Nalgene Water Bottle.
- Chem Lights.
- First Aid Kit, Anti-Bacterial Wipes, Sunscreen, Splint.
- Multi-tool, Duct Tape, Convertible Shovel /Pick Axe, Paracord.
- Gloves, Hat, Heat Pack, Mylar Thermal Space Blanket, Mylar Thermal Survival Tent.
The fully loaded Backpack weighs 11.5 lbs, I would have guessed it weighed much more than it does so that was definitely a surprise.
The insert also comes with shoulder straps so when it’s removed from the shell the carrying capacity increases if a second person is they to wear the shell.
This was a brief look at a truly masterful design,
The price for this fully loaded piece is $349.99.
so it is basically just the shell, giving you the option to prep it as you feel. Not only is this backpack shell functional but it has a very distinct look and a stylish appeal that makes it the perfect backpack for hiking or city/urban traveling or settings.
