Aquapac 15L Noatak Wet and Dry bag
Keep out any rain, mud or sea spray, whatever your pursuits. 100% waterproof and buoyant.
These lightweight bags are suited to a wide range of outdoor recreation.
You would be forgiven for initially presuming these to simply be a waterproof cover for your existing bag – but with built in shoulder straps and internal wet and dry sectioned pockets the Noatak is so much more.
Made from super-strong ripstop TPU coated nylon, the single roll-down opening will keep water out, while anything damp and dirty inside stays separate to your clean and dry gear thanks to two individual compartments.
A lunchtime dip in freezing british waters christened our pack into the perfect wetsuit/beach bag. The small 15L size was perfect for stashing the soaking suit down one side and a dry towel down the other. With an integrated lash tab and strap that doubles as a chest strap it will be the new accompaniment on summer kayak excursions too, keeping sea spray at bay from salt-sensitive accessories.
Of course, you need not feel restricted by this snug 15-litre capacity version: Aquapac have these bags in 25 and 35 litres too. All have been certified as “IPX6″ after some rigorous tests at Imperial College in London. Simply put, they’re fire-hose proof.
These bags are built to keep things light, so don’t expect a padded back or too many extras to keep you comfortable if you have a serious hike ahead of you. They do however fold down to a minimal size for whipping out of your regular rucksack should a dodgy river crossing lay ahead (the 15l weighs 260g). Perfectly suited to the weekend day tripper whether walking, cycling, sailing, kayaking or simply heading to the beach. With a full 5-year warranty you can’t go wrong with a Noatak.
