Recommendations for waterproof canvas backpack/rucksack?
« on: February 21, 2017, 12:35:32 PM »
Anyone carry a backpack or rucksack with them every day and can recommend a good waterproof canvas pack? My job involves me moving a lot of written material between sites and in this famous Welsh weather I would really need something waterproof! It's also a bag I'd like to use for camping weekends away as a kind of all-in-one EDC bag.

I don't know if they have them there, I just use an old ALICE pack. Also, about any canvas pack can be made water proof.

Never canvas, it always ends up leaking. For a few years now I've used the Hazard 4 MOD for work

Thanks all, great stuff. Zed, that backpack looks great! The Hazard is nice too but I am ideally looking for something a little cheaper. Will investigate! thanks.
