Keep every day dry.
When you're out on the river all day, there's nothing worse than getting your spare layers and snacks soaking wet. Make sure this doesn't happen to you; keep them in the new Filson Dry Day Backpack and rest easy. Filson used tough 18oz vinyl-coated polyester and combined it with a roll-top closure system that cinches down on the sides to ensure a durable, long-lasting waterproof bag that you'll be able to rely on, day after day. Backpack straps ensure a comfortable carry from the car to the river, so you're not left juggling the essentials on the way.

Filson Dry Day Pack
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Took this out this weekend, I'll have to update my review when it sees more water.
Initial impressions: Good material quality. Straps are padded, seem like they'll hold up over time. I like that there's a chest strap buckle. Color seems to be a but muted compared to the green color pictured, but not by enough to dissuade you from purchasing it if you're set on the green.
Things it could improve: the backpack straps could stand to be separated a bit more where they attach to the back at the top. Simple fix is to loosen the straps so the bag hangs down a but lower, making your neck/head fit more comfortably between the shoulder straps. However, I am not sure how feasible this would be as the load increases in weight. For me, it worked just fine. I found that the velcro strap was also a bit too long to do much when the pack wasn't full, but the clips on the side alleviated any worry of my contents falling out.
Things it does great: Well, for starters, just LOOK at it - Filson has always been one for racking up style points. Secondly, it kept my contents dry; the whole damn point of the bag. Granted, I only had it in some soggy Seattle rain. However I plan on taking this with me on some upcoming Steelhead fishing trips, so I will check back with a more accurate review of how it holds up in actual water. The small zipper pocket on the front is a great addition, as well. Makes a great place for storing items you'll need to access quickly.
