The Stormfront Pack ($279) is any simple outdoor adventurer’s dream. Its beefed-up backpack form is made of 840-denier double polyurethane-coated nylon fabric (that’s science-speak for “super waterproof stuff”) and features a waterproof zipper system, an internal custom-fit padded gear case complete with adjustable divider, and even a separate zippered mesh pocket. The Pack’s backpack harness is also removable; enabling it to go from a hiking pack to a boat bag in a jiffy without losing an ounce of its desert-dry capabilities — so kiss those nightmares of your smartphone becoming a smart paperweight goodbye. While that’s all well and good, the real beauty of this pack lies in its minimalist aesthetics. All the other stuff’s just icing on the ultra-dry cake.
