Filson Dry Duffle Backpack

By Magnus Angus

"A very tough, useful pack."

A good sized waterproof backpack. Filson give the dimensions as “14 1⁄2" W x 28" H x 8" D “  – a volume would be handier. The bag is simple, heavy duty vinyl-coated polyester, a lighter more supple version of material used to make tarpaulins. All seams are taped and welded, making them tougher than the fabric. The top is rolled down and held at the sides where the buckles can be adjusted to keep the closure tight. On the back, wide padded straps – note there is no padding on the back.

A very simple, very useful pack – on a boat, in rain, wading a river, wading in or around the sea – where a conventional backpack has a hard time keeping its contents dry – that is what this does best. A very tough, useful pack.


Price: £115
From: Filson, 9 Newburgh St. London, UK W1F 7RL
