The Filson Backpack Dry Bag is When the fishing or hunting is at its best and the weather at its worst, the gear that you depend on must be kept dry. Filson’s Backpack Dry Bag, built with heavy-duty materials and industry-leading manufacturing technology, delivers reliable, waterproof protection to keep water outside, where it belongs.
Built with tough 840-denier nylon tarpaulin fabric coated with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), water simply cannot penetrate it. The advantages of using a nylon fabric with this coating rather than polyester or canvas are lightness of weight, flexibility and abrasion resistance. The highly-flexible TPU coating is resistant to ultraviolet light and chemicals, ensuring durability and longevity without breakdown from hard use. The seams are radio-frequency (RF) welded, a cement-free process that permanently fuses the fabric layers together, assuring flexible integrity without fail. All webbing and padding is securely stitched to an additional layer of the waterproof fabric, which is then RF-welded to the bag?s body. This is the same construction as used in the manufacture of white-water rafting gear, where equipment failure could have fatal consequences.
The Backpack Dry Bag, engineered in Filson’s Seattle headquarters with input from experienced hunters, anglers and outdoorsmen, is built to carry a full loadout comfortably and stably for miles. The removeable, padded hip belt supports the weight to keep it off of yFilson’s shoulders, and sports shell loops on either sides for quick reloads when the ducks are coming in hot. The shoulder straps are contoured to the shape of yFilson’s body and feature breathable foam padding, as well as a two-way adjustable sternum strap for stability, mesh utility pockets a D-rings for gear attachment. The exterior features a centered, clear zippered pocket plus side cargo and water-bottle pockets. The spacious main compartment is sealed with a large TIZIP? zipper, the same type that is used in dry suits, for a fully water-tight seal. Inside is an additional zippered mesh pocket to keep valuables secure and organized. To round out this bag?s feature set, the top-grab handle is equipped with a sturdy buckle, making it a snap to secure yFilson’s pack in the boat or hang it on a tree branch.
The Backpack Dry Bag ? built to comfortably carry heavy loads in the field or on the water while providing 100% waterproof protection to keep yFilson’s gear dry.
