The urban commute can be a harrowing and dirty business, even when the weather’s nice. When inclement weather comes a calling though, it’s a challenge to keep yourself dry, even more so your beloved gear. The SealLine Urban Backpack is made to solve that very problem. As one of the world’s leading water resistant bag manufacturers, SealLine has taken the technology applied to bags for canoeing and kayaking, and adapted it for the urban commuter. The Urban Backpack is constructed with a RF-welded, PVC-free 600D PU-coated polyester body, and a water tight roll down top, secured with their QuickClip technology. We found the QuickClip to be the key to this crossover bag, allowing easy access while still maintaining water resistance. The external pocket also allows easy addition on modular storage with their M.A.P. system. With it’s two sizes and well ventilated back pad, you’ll be ready for any commuting hazards mother nature throws your way.

Author’s Note: With only one main interior compartment, we’d recommend picking up the Urban Backpack Organizer as a handy addition.

Cost: $120
