Rain and river water don’t stand a chance this spring, thanks to Filson’s Dry Backpack, a completely submergible pack made from heavy-duty nylon fabric coated in clear polyurethane.

A roll-down top keeps water from entering the main opening, while a watertight zipper keeps moisture out of the external front pocket.

A high-density-foam padded back and contoured, padded shoulder straps make it comfy for all-day wear while out fishing, hiking in the rain forest or just commuting in spring showers.

$175, available May 24 at Filson (Sodo) and
