Review: Aquaplanet Waterproof Backpack

Aquaplanet 25 Litre Waterproof Backpack

For most of my life I carried absolutely everything in a shoulder bag. There was probably a reason why all my high heels wore down on an angle! But then a couple of years ago I fell down the stairs and hurt my back quite badly... suddenly the shoulder bag was a total no go. Ever since I have mostly used a backpack for work and general day-to-day trips because it's better for me to have the weight evenly balanced. 

I was more than happy, then, to try out Aquaplanet's 25 litre waterproof backpack for review. 

Because, really, the main downside of my usual backpacks are the, er, selective properties of their waterproofing. With a shoulder bag you can kind of pull it in closer, or huddle it under an umbrella or whatever. A backpack is more exposed to the elements when walking, so more potential for your belongings to get soggy in the wet Welsh weather...

That's where Aquaplanet have you covered - this backpack is fully waterproofed and has a roll top closure to ensure no seepage as you can get with a zip fastening. Importantly for my needs, the backpack is lightweight, has padded adjustable shoulder and chest straps, and is plenty big enough to fit a laptop, diary and notebooks. 

It also has reflective strips for visibility and an external drinks bottle pocket.

Aquaplanet specialise in products for paddleboarders so, if you're looking for a bag for outdoor sports and hiking, this backpack has plenty of features to make life easier. These include an external Easypanel for quick access storage, a secret waterproof zipped pocket, and lots of loops and straps for securing equipment.
