    Waterproof Backpacks

    I have been looking into buying a waterproof backpack and I came across the FirsrGear Torrent 20 L. I currently use a 20 L bag that I strap on my rack. Since I don't want to leave my expensive items on my TW in parking lots I have to carry my bag like a purse. This backpack is the perfect solution for my needs. I can still strap it to my rack and wear it when needed. Under $65

    Much more expensive, but absolutely bomber. Made to canyoneering and caving specs. Tough enough to drag. Strap is removable so you don't have to worry about entanglement. Probably way overkill for hauling stuff on the TW, but just letting you know it's out there. I've used one caving and canyoneering for years, I use stuff really hard and so I am always looking for the best. So waterproof you can use it as a water carrier. Lifetime warranty.

    Oh, and it's ugly in a tough and utilitarian way.

    I use the Firstgear Torrent too. One of the bottom corners has a hole now, probably from when i dropped the TW on the trails. And the chests straps came off too easily. Also wish the backpack was expandable. Besides that, it's a very good waterproof backpack for the price. It's my favorite backpack.

    I use a soft side cooler with back pack straps I found at a garage sale. Keeps the rain out and the beer cold.

    This is what I use on my TW. It' been on two 4000 plus kilometre trips in the past two years. Survived minor crashes, tossed around camp and been in some really hard rainstorms and never failed me. It has built in shoulder straps. Comes in three sizes 30,50 and 100 litres. Only available in Canada but the value of your dollar compared to ours should cover the shipping. Check out the video on the website.

    That's a sharp looking Duffle I like the fact that it has shoulder straps. Looks like that would be perfect for a two or three day trip.

    The longest run while geared up like in the picture was 20 days in 2013 and 14 days in 2014. I am going to purchase the 100 litre Scully to replace the Jesse aluminium top box on my V-Strom for this summers multi week tour. The Skully is 8 lbs lighter.... and makes more room for gear and beer.
