    It is finally here! DryTide 30L waterproof daypack is the new daily go-to backpack that has you covered no matter what you want to do. As all DryTide backpacks, the 30L backpack combines the usefulness, versatility and comfort of regular backpacks with the waterproof capabilities of dry bags.

    If the 50L Traveler waterproof backpack is huge and can hold all your gear on multi-day trips, the 30L is your everyday backpack, your daypack. With its 30L size, slim shape and both internal and external pockets it helps you carry and organize your things wherever you want to go. Short surf trips, going to the beach, going to school or college, your daily commute to work, from riding your bike through the city to riding your motorbike through the mountains, this waterproof daypack has you covered in any environment.

    The elegant look and slim streamlined design make this waterproof daypack feel right at home in the middle of the jungle or in the middle of the city. But don’t be fooled by the good looks.

    The backpack is made out of durable 100% waterproof fabric and things inside the backpack will not only stay dry during a quick rain shower but also in much heavier conditions like long and heavy torrential rainstorms, during various water sports like kayaking, rafting, boating, stand up paddling… This backpack offers protection beyond the regular “waterproof” tag, you can throw it into the sea and it will stay dry. At the same time, this backpack will also protect your things from sand and dust. Both can be even more harmful to electronics than water.

    With all this, the DryTide backpack is still a proper backpack with pockets to organize your things, with shoulder straps and padded back, and a hip belt to help you carry it around.

    *it is normal for rainproof zippers to be harder to open and close than regular and splash-proof zippers because rainproof zippers produce a much better and tighter seal that can stop water from coming inside even when dropped into the sea (it’s a feature, not a bug)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can the backpack be used as a carry on backpack if you are travelling by plane?

    Yes, absolutely. The 30L backpack is perfect as a carry-on.

    How big is this waterproof daypack?

    The size of the backpack is 31cm x 17cm x 54cm (W x L x H) or 12″ x 6 3/4″ x 21″. The backpack has enough room to pack everything you need on a day trip – clothes, towel, camera etc… If you are going on a surf trip it can hold two thick winter wetsuits with some extra room to spare.

    Is this backpack good for carrying wet gear like wetsuits, snorkelling gear etc?

    For sure. The main compartment and both external pockets are waterproof. This means that the inside of the backpack will stay dry even if you drop it into the sea or no water will come out of it if you fill it with wet gear. The big external pocket and the main compartment let you separate your wet and dry items. If you have lots of wet items put them into the main compartment and your dry clothes into the external pocket and vice versa. If you only have some wet boardshorts and a swimsuit or a wet wetsuit top you can stash them in the external pocket and your whole main compartment stays dry.

    It this a camera backpack?

    If your main concern is to keep your camera gear dry then yes, this is a perfect camera backpack. It is just the right size, it will stop the water, humidity and sand from entering, it has enough pockets to keep everything organized and it is comfortable to carry. It does however not have internal padding due to obvious reasons – so you can use it to carry wet gear inside the backpack. If you need padding then you can get a separate camera cube to insert that you can put inside the backpack. This way you can transform your 30L DryTide waterproof backpack into a full-on waterproof photography backpack.

    Care and Use

    • The backpack floats on water but it is not meant for prolonged submersion. If there is a danger of falling into the sea, make sure that the roll down top is closed as tightly as possible.
    • Keep solvents and liquids like insect repellents away from the backpack.
    • Keep the backpack away from extreme heat and sharp objects. Even though the backpack is made out of tearproof and durable material sharp objects like thorns, needles etc… can puncture the material.
    • Rinse the backpack with fresh water when it is dirty or after use in the sea – continuous salt deposits can jam the zippers.
