Camera backpack with waterproof zipper

6 months 1 day ago #679702 by Scott Klubeck
I need something that is as waterproof as I can get.  The problem is zippers, usually these are not water proof and weak link.  Are there any rugged and outdoors ready backpacks that are also waterproof?  *with zipper water proof?  

Can you share some options please?  Thank you PT.

Many backpacks have "raincoats", as do many bags. That's your best bet.

It's a backpack. You're going to have to remove it to get into it, aren't you?

That said, I'd look at ThinkTank products. I'm a fan. But I can't point to any specific model without doing the research. So I'll just leave that for you ;-)

+ 1 Think Tank and the Mind Shift bags they have.  F-Stop Gear is another.  And look at Hazard 4.  I saw an article here last month about those packs, and I think they mentioned something about the zipper or rugged.  Can't recall exactly, check with the site admins here.  

Nikon 18-55mm VR, Nikon 70-200mm VRII f/2.8, Nikon 50mm f/1.8, Nikon 10.5mm Fisheye, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, SB-700 & SB-800

I just picked up a Hazard 4 Pillbox a couple months ago, this is not a waterproof pack.  It's extremely durable, but not waterproof.  Just saying so the OP doesn't get and think they can go swimming with this thing.

My Lowepro and Vanguard bags have rain coats, stuffed in the very bottom of the bags.
