Filling a niche many backpackers aren’t even aware of, the Roark Revival Missing Link Wet/Dry Backpack is as successful at keeping water out as it is in preventing it from escape. The rugged 50c printed PVC Tarpaulin shell can hold your wetsuit or other soggy gear without danger of leaking or, conversely, can keep a 25-liter load dry in even heavy rain conditions.

The all-black backpack also has a side zippered pocket that is completely waterproof for carrying your phone, keys, or wallet in dry safety. The other side has a mesh pocket for quick access to a water bottle or thermos. It features a padded back panel for comfort as well as being equipped with a bungee cord on the front for attaching a few extra layers.
