Watershed Big Creek Dry Backpack - The Big Creek Dry Backpack by Watershed offers airtight, submersible storage in a small daypack size. Great for canyoneering or scrambling around in the rainforest, the Big Creek is a waterproof daypack you can count on. The patented ZipDry seal is similar to a heavy-duty freezer bags zipper. It locks shut, keeping out moisture with an airtight, waterproof seal, even when submerged and under pressure. The top-loading cylinder shape with side compression straps allows you to adjust the height when loaded. Polyurethane-coated 420-denier nylon pack cloth fabric offers 5 times the abrasion resistance of PVC, stays flexible in cold weather, is UV-stable, and more environmentally friendly. Radio-frequency welding bonds the multiple layers of fabric into a single piece of material, eliminating leaks. Padded, removable shoulder straps help to evenly distribute your load and offer you all the comforts of a backpack. Through intensive quality assurance, including prolonged inflation testing, Watershed produces truly waterproof bags that are guaranteed to be free of leaks. If you need bombproof dry protection for your gear, look no further.
