In the last few years, I have become increasingly more interested in outdoor activities; however, I still struggle with packing. Not only does my 20-something body temperature fluctuate like a menopausal woman (layers are key), my mood is heavily affected by the weather. So, whether it be for a day hike or a multi-day trek, I tend to be overly prepared for any element that could occur. And since I can’t carry my entire closet with me on adventures, I have to be efficient where I can.
When we went to the Amazon Rainforest, I brought along my trusty Osprey day pack. And while it kept me cool and had a cover for the pack, it didn’t stand up to the downpours we encountered, leaving some of my belongings damp. And after a full two hours of torrential rain, when the sun pokes it’s head between the clouds, a nice warm shirt is necessary.
Recently, I stumbled upon the COR Waterproof Dry Back Backpack from COR Board Racks. The company looks like it is tailored more for water sports, but would also be a pack to weather all elements. This 40L pack offers tons of space for layers and shoes. And since it’s 100% waterproof, I don’t have to make the decision to leave the electronics at home or run the risk of ruining them. It also has a water-resistant front pocket, so you don’t have to rifle through your pack when you want to snap a quick pic.

So, if you know the weather may turn on you and you like to be as comfortable as can be, so that you can focus on enjoying the outdoors vs. how cold, how hot, how wet, how dry you are, then this pack is for you! Neverbeenso able to relax about what I can’t control!
