Difference Between Waterproof and Water Resistant Backpack

Terms waterproof and water-resistant are used all the time when describing products and most of the time they are used loosely. In reality, not many bags and backpacks that use the term waterproof are really literally waterproof.  What is the difference between a water-resistant backpack and a truly waterproof backpack and what makes a backpack really waterproof?

Waterproof Backpack

  • A waterproof backpack is made out of 100% waterproof fabric that will stop the water for an unlimited amount of time, no matter the conditions and water pressure.
  • Pieces of this fabric are welded together using ultrasonic welding. No stitches are used when constructing this backpack’s compartments and pockets.
  • A waterproof backpack also uses a roll down top closure system or waterproof zippers for closing all the openings in the backpack.

RESULT: This kind of backpack can be dropped into the water and the inside of the backpack will stay dry. It will protect your belongings in even the strongest tropical rainstorms for days, months, years if needed.

Water Resistant Backpack

  • Water resistant backpack is usually made out of fabric that will stop the water only for a limited amount of time. Longer exposure and added water pressure result in water slowly getting through the fabric.
  • When constructing a water resistant backpack pieces of this fabric are stitched together. Stitching makes holes into the fabric where water can get in. To combat this stitches are sometimes also taped which improves water resistance.
  • A water resistant backpack uses regular or splash proof zippers to close the backpack.

RESULT: Water resistant backpack can protect you things in light to medium strong rain that does not last for longer periods of time. Depending on the materials used, the quality of the backpack and the amount of rain this can be anywhere from only a few minutes to a couple of hours.
