Enjoy the outdoors – without worrying about the water!We’ve made it easier to enjoy the outdoors by giving you the ultimate safe-haven for your stuff: the fully waterproof Breakwater Supply Explorer Backpack. This lightweight, rugged pack offers unbeatable waterproof protection for all of your gear – including your electronics – with the versatility to handle work, travel, and adventure. Bring it all with you:
- 25L (1500 cu in) main compartment, with an additional front waterproof pocket and front buckle strap (for bulky items).
- For your tech: 16″ laptop sleeve and waterproof smartphone pocket.
- Adventure-ready: The front and top grab handles feature carabiner attachment points on each side.
- All-day comfort: Curved, ergonomic shoulder straps. Lightweight at just 1.9 lbs.
- Zip it watertight: Unlike roll-top bags that require forcing out air, rolling and buckling – just zip the Explorer Backpack shut and it’s waterproof.
It totally meets and exceeds my expectations at first blush. It seems to be of terrific quality, and is certainly the best bag I’ve bought on Kickstarter to date. Gary, Kickstarter Backer
ONE BAG FOR COMMUTE, TRAVEL, AND ADVENTURE!Store everything you need for commute, travel, and adventure with 25L (1500+ cubic inches) of interior space. Plus with 20″ x 13″ x 7″ exterior dimensions, this bag fits underneath the seats as a personal item on most airlines. And for bulky items – like a jacket or that sweaty pair of gym shoes – you can quickly cinch them down with the front buckle strap.
Open WaterGet out there on the water! Splashes, puddles, and even submersion – no matter what, your stuff stays dry. The back and shoulder straps use fast-drying, non-abrasive padding for use during water activities like kayaking, paddleboarding, boating, and at the beach. And if it ends up overboard – or if you end up overboard – it floats!
Wet Weather – So What!Because this backpack is made using welded seams, airtight zippers, and our fully waterproof Hydrowall material, it can withstand rain for any amount of time – so you can stay outside longer and without worry. Hydrowall is made using a double-sided TPU coating for incredible toughness and longevity. It won’t rip or tear, and doesn’t become brittle or break down.
TOP & BOTTOM GRAB HANDLES WITH CARABINER LOOPS
- Easily grab the pack from storage areas, back seats, or from the floor of your kayak/boat.
- Carabiner attachment points on the sides of each handle for clipping extra gear.
All Day Comfort
- S-curve ergonomic shoulder straps
- Adjustable, removable and reflective chest strap with emergency whistle
- Molded EVA back panel with fast-drying padding
- Lightweight neoprene shoulder padding with reflective logo on right side
- 16″ padded laptop sleeve with velcro closure
- Two 4″ x 6″ elastic mesh pockets – useful for cables and chargers
- 6.75″ x 3.75″ internal smartphone pocket with clear window
- 11″ x 7″ large interior zippered pocket
Waterproof Smartphone PocketThe side smartphone pocket utilizes extra thick, clear, puncture-proof TPU. This is the same rubbery material used for waterproof phone cases. Since this pocket is only accessible from the inside, it’s secure and also completely waterproof. Your phone is protected from splashes, rain, mud, dirt, and sand. And to top it off, the touchscreen works from the outside, so you can control your phone without taking it out of your bag – a customer-favorite feature.
Hydrowall MaterialOur Hydrowall material has an advanced dual-sided permanently waterproof TPU layer that’s tough-as-nails and offers the same amazing performance in any climate. Along with the airtight zippers and high-frequency welded seams, this pack is a true safe-haven for your gear.
After putting some hours on the pack, it’s obvious to me that this is an extremely well-thought-out piece of gear for fishing and much, much more!Demystifly.com Review
The Versatility to Handle AnythingWhat makes the Explorer Backpack special is that it’s rugged enough for adventure yet versatile enough for day-to-day life. It’s equipped to handle any activity or weather. With plenty of room, plus dedicated pockets to store your electronics, you’re covered whether out on the water, backpacking to bucket-list locales, or just heading in to work.
It Started on KickstarterAfter a successful launch on Kickstarter, we delivered this backpack to customers around the globe. Our two biggest reasons for creating this pack:
- WATERPROOF PROTECTION WITH ZIPPERS: There’s plenty of roll-top waterproof packs out there, but those can be cumbersome and difficult to organize your stuff inside. So we set out to make a versatile, zippered waterproof backpack.
- VALUE: Similar backpacks using 600D+ TPU and airtight zippers go for twice as much, and they don’t have a waterproof front pocket. Having more functionality than other products on the market, yet still being more affordable equals added value. Also – these zippers are drysuit-grade and do not require “zipper grease”.
