The Youghiogheny River provides for some of the best white water rafting in the Eastern U.S. The rapids on the upper part of the river are class IV and V. There is are two guarantees for a day on the Upper Youghiogheny– an unbelievable adrenaline rush and getting drenched. Enjoying the thrill of the Youghiogheny for a day requires a pack to keep your essentials dry.

The Aquapac Waterproof Backpack will more than meet what is needed for a wet trip down the roaring Youghiogheny River. The backpack's design is similar to a dry bag but has many bells and whistles to make it more functional. The Aquapac Waterproof Backpack gives back support with a removable panel. The compartment for the back support panel also doubles as a pocket for a hydration bladder.

The straps on the Aquapac Waterproof Backpack are mesh to allow them to dry quickly. There is a sternum and waist strap that gives added back support and keeps the pack in place. The pack is constructed of TPU-coated fabrics and taped seams which keep the contents in the bag dry. The Aquapac Waterproof Backpack keeps its waterproofness even with prolonged exposure to a wet environment. Two mesh pockets flank the pack allowing for added storage for such items as water bottles.

What makes the Aquapac Waterproof Backpack a cut above a regular dry bag is the features inside the pack. There is an easily accessible pocket for essentials such as car keys, wallet, GPS, and other items. There is even a separate pocket to store any wet items such as a wet pair of clothes that you are changing from.

Aquapac LogoThe Aquapac Waterproof Backpack is a wonderful companion for any activities that you know you will be getting drenched. It will keep all your gear and apparel dry. It comes in one color, black, and has an MSRP of $85. Aquapac guarantees it for 3-years for any defects due to faulty workmanship.
