DryTide waterproof travel backpack combines the usefulness, versatility and comfort of regular backpacks with waterproof capabilities of dry bags. It offers protection beyond the regular “waterproof” tag which can today mean many different things. At 50l it is a perfect travel companion for worry free travel in any weather and in any environment.
Backpack is made out of 100% waterproof material and things inside the DryTide waterproof 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… they will even survive a fall into the water or even a shorter submersion where the backpack is put completely underwater. Backpack will also protect your things from sand and dust that can be even more harmful to electronics than water.
Backpack can act as protection against water or as a backpack for carrying wet gear so it does not drip all over your car for instance.
With all this, 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. The 50L waterproof travel backpack is big, but with the roll down top closure, the size of the backpack can be adjusted to your needs. Since this is not a hard shell suitcase that either fits or doesn’t fit into the overhead compartments it is actually up to you how big the backpack will be. If you fill it to the top it will for sure not be suitable for a carry on. But if you fill it lets say half way, then you can use it as a carry on without a problem, it has been done many times.
How big is this waterproof backpack?
It is big. Backpack has more than enough room to pack everything you need for a few days. You can easily store 4-6 wetsuits inside. It can store motorbiking boots together with all your other protection and motorcycle suit. If you are going on a trip you can store all you clothes for the trip together with laptop, drone, camera, a couple of lenses, and a dome port. At the same time, with the roll down top and by tightening the side straps you can make is smaller. If this backpack is too big for you check the 30L waterproof daypack.
It is a camera backpack?
If your main concern is to keep your camera gear dry then yes, DryTide waterproof travel backpack can be used as a camera backpack. It will stop the water, sand and dust, it has enough pockets to keep everything organized, lots of room for all your equipment and it is comfortable to carry. It is however not a camera specific backpack that would offer internal cushioning and special compartments for your camera body and lenses. This backpack allows you to carry we gear inside it, this is why internal padding can not be used. If you need added protection we suggest to get a separate camera cube insert that you can put inside the backpack. This way you can transform your 50L DryTide waterproof travel backpack into a perfect photography backpack.
