These bags can withstand water penetration when submerged up to a bone crushing 91 meters /300 feet!

The Animas backpack is one extreme dry bag you that can trust to protect your gear from water damage even in the most demanding of situations. Manufactured from heavy-duty Cordura ripstop nylon with a matte PU finish, so the water just beads up and rolls off. Watershed's excellent ZipDry top closure creates a watertight seal that's easy to open and close.

The 40-litre capacity is perfect for carrying enough kit for an overnight adventure, or pack lightly and go for longer. Ideal for carrying warm clothing, sleeping bag and food that you NEED to keep dry.

The Animas has removable back-straps and waist belt, so you can strip it down and use for hauling kit via the durable reinforced lug handle.

The bag is stitch-free and has been welded using high pressure and radio frequency making it one single piece of material, free from weak points.

The 840 denier Cordura ripstop nylon, reinforced with multiple layers of polyurethane is tough enough to withstand some serious abuse, heavy loads and constant exposure to water. It will shrug off UV rays, chemicals and abrasive outdoor conditions without fading, cracking or losing flexibility.

The Animas is the most popular waterproof backpack by Watershed for good reasons. If you’re thinking about investing in this dry bag we're confident it will serve you well for many years!

Drybags come in a range of waterproof ratings that make them more appropriate for some activities than others. In general the thicker the material the more waterproof and robust the bag, but it will also be much heavier and less malleable to fit into nooks and crannies in boats and kayaks, and packed into larger bags.

Look out for these badges with every product:

The method of sealing the bags is crucial. Some dry bags have two methods of securing them: you fold them over at least 3 or 4 times, click the buckles and then secure with a Velcro strip.

The bags are all rated for waterproofness with a two-digit IP number: Ingress Protection.

The first digit will be a number between 0-6, and indicates the degree of protection from ingress of solid objects (the user themselves, and other potentially harmful particulates such as dust or dirt).

The second digit in an IP rating will be a number between 0-9, denoting the quality of resistance to moisture ingress at varying intensities, angles, depths and pressures of exposure or immersion.

All our waterproof bags have a first digit of 6, meaning: Full protection against dust and other particulates, including a vacuum seal, tested against continuous airflow. The second digits are a 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8.
