Waterproof day pack

Hello ladies and gents !

Looking to kill two birds with one stone on this thread.

First up:

I'm in the market for a small day back to take either riding, biking in the rain (vancouver) or even the beach with a few cold ones stashed inside. Not looking for anything overly bulky, streamline is ideal. So I was thinking a ~15L pack. Can anyone recommend a good brand and or model ? Waterproof is ideal. I'm not broke by any means but also looking to keep it it the $60-$100 range if possible. Even if it's more expensive I would be open to the idea.


Second:

Any recommendations for purchasing ankle ratchets online ? I have Burton P1's from 2008 and looking to stick with their ratchets. If there are equal/better ones out there please share.


Thanks for any leads and any replies !

Have never seen a pack be waterproof...easy solution use a plastic bag inside the pack...compactor bags are the best.

Burton ratchets (old style) are hard to find. I got a stash of 3 sets from my shop gal via burton rep...but now burton changes the ladders/ratchets. Maybe get a new set of straps.

Check out Ortovox they do some really low profile packs which are good for biking and boarding. As for waterproof one of my NorthFace bags is so waterproof you can blow it up and it will float and not let a drop of water in.

Thanks for chiming in, I'm not looking for older racthets; new ratchets would be ideal so they last the upcoming seasons. Do they sell them if I call the warranty department ?




And as for packs, I guess I'll look into all the big names in outdoor gear northface, arcteryx, ortovox, ogio and the likes. Was looking for "success" stories about the pack to stoke me

Some surf packs are waterproof. Dakine may have what your looking for.

Waterproof as in hike/ride in rain, place the pack in slush etc. or waterproof as in dip the pack under water/use it for rafting?

If the first, look at Deuter. Zipps are sealed, material has a thick PU layer. Mine (Edge 25l, in use app. 8y) was never wet inside riding in spring slush or hiking in drizzle. Haven't tried it in continued downpour .

I will look into Deuter packs. Pretty much looking for what you first described. Nothing being submerged here


I know with cheaper jackets they are coated and will eventually wear off. Looking to have the pack stay dry for years to come ! Thanks for the reply.
