What makes the best waterproof kayaking backpack?

It's common to use dry bags for kayaking, but have you considered a waterproof backpack for kayaking? When looking for the best waterproof backpack for kayaking, you are looking for several key factors:

  1. Floatability

  2. Size and durability

  3. True waterproofing



The one thing you don't want to deal with is a bag with all of your clothes, keys, wallet at the bottom of the river. Some combat this by using a rollbag or dry bag with their raft and strapping it to the raft. This can word in some cases but in the case that it ever gets loose or is not tied down correctly, it can find its way in the river and your valuables are gone. With Amphipak, the pack can float freely on the water. The airtight container keeps the buoyancy of the pack afloat so that it can float alongside your raft. You can toe it with you so you can have a waterproof kayaking tour bag or you can strap it up with the convenient loops provided on the pack.

Size and durability

When using a kayaking backpack, you will want to make sure it can withstand rocks, dirt, and the constant flow of water. In addition, you will also need to have a submersible backpack as going through rapids will commonly cause the backpack to be submerged underwater. An underwater pack is a no good pack if it isn't keeping your goods dry. In addition to durability, the size of the pack will matter as you will need to pack in enough gear for your tour including food, cameras, and a change of clothes. A waterproof camera bag is a no brainer as it will allow you to take your professional camera and be assured that it is safe and protected. The Amphipak comes in handy as a large waterproof bag at 34L and can fit all of your gear for a tour on the river.
