does this pack make me look waterproof?

hey. just took this pack sans lid for a day hike to see how it would do. held up nicely just as it did on the overnighter i took it on a few weeks before.

as a point of curiosity, today at the waterfall/swimming hole, i threw the pack in the water and used it as a flotation device. overall a success, but beware of the outer zippered pockets.. i failed to remember the drainage hole at the bottom of the large one and how the small one is only kept separate by some stretchy, non-water resistant material. i'd imagine the lid isnt dunkable either, but that's for me to find out later.

as a response to the guy who said it was an odd shape at the bottom: i just pack in my sleeping bag without the stuff sack. it fills in the space nicely and you can just cram stuff on top of it. its worry-free, even with my down bag since.. well.. its a drysack.

my straps squeak too.. not sure what to do about that. great pack though. cant wait to use it again.

So does that mean that this pack (or at least the main chamber of it) is actually submergeable? There seems to be lots of conflicting reports on this point. I'd like something that'll fall in the river and keep my gear 100% dry...

Yes the main compartment is just as waterproof as any other roll top dry bag on the market. It can withstand being submerged totaly. Just like any dry bag out there, if you leave it submerged long enough water will work it's way in.
