Dry Bag Backpack Brilliance: The Yukon Outfitters Carbon Point 25L

I finally found the dry bag backpack I’ve been looking for! I have used small (10L) dry bags for years to keep my valuables from getting wet or sandy while rafting, boating, floating, surfing, beaching, among other activities, but I’ve been searching for a bigger, backpack-style, practical dry bag, and this summer I discovered the Carbon Point Dry Pack. This pack is so much more than a typical dry bag, which is precisely why I had to try it out.

The Carbon Point Dry Pack is a backpack dry bag, with comfortable (padded), adjustable straps to fit nicely against your back.

It has a convenient water-proof pocket on the outside, two mesh side pockets, as well as (and this is my favorite part) a laptop sleeve on the inside.


Yes, a padded laptop sleeve inside the pack. Brilliant.

It is 25L – about the size of any regular daypack – so it easily fits on your back for a bike ride, into overhead compartments, or on your lap in transit.

What interests me about this pack is that it was designed for use in the rugged outdoors. It is made with quality materials to withstand all types of weather, ideally for hunting trips.

I originally thought this bag would be great for travel, a quality packable to take on the battering that travel backpacks get, but now that I’ve used it (again and again), I think it is absolutely ideal for bicycle commuters and everyday use as well, particularly if you live in an area prone to rain.

This is a collaboration post, but as always, all opinions are my own.
