Best Waterproof Backpacks - Bestbackpack

Backpacks have been evolving over the past decade – becoming more compact, more durable, and more versatile. with the latest entrant being the waterproof backpack. In a way, the backpack has reflected our own changing lifestyles. With multitasking being the new mantra, we expect our bags to be able to do different things on different occasions.

Our Top Pick!
Mancro Water Resistant Backpack

The Mancro is built for business: right from its sleek, capsule-like shape to the three compartments of varying sizes where you can store a variety of accessories and gear.

Mancro Anti Theft Water Resistant College School Bookbag

A feature that is useful on every occasion though, is being waterproof. Using a waterproof backpack lets you focus on the more important things in life rather than whether or not your belongings are going to get damaged. Waterproof backpacks are very useful when going on hikes, particularly when you need to cross through rivers. On the other hand, using an everyday backpack for school/college/work that is also waterproof, ensures that your notes and tech stay protected and dry.

When looking at waterproof backpacks, you will notice two very distinct styles. On one hand, you have those designed to be placed into a body of water without any water seeping through – also sometimes referred to as a dry bag. These are generally used when hiking or other outdoor activities where you want to make sure your belongings stay 100% dry.

On the other hand, you have those designed more towards everyday use such as for school or work – where protection against rain is the primary focus. These bags, although still providing protection against water, are generally referred to as water-resistant as they cannot be placed into a body of water. We have decided to incorporate both types of waterproof backpacks in this list – splitting them up between water-resistant and waterproof.

Our Top 10 Waterproof Backpack Choices

Water-Resistant Backpacks

As mentioned, these backpacks are geared toward everyday use and can be used for college or the office. They are great for traveling and they can also be used outdoors for short day hikes where protection against rain or moisture is all that is required. These backpacks all feature compartments to carry your laptop and mobile phone, but can also be used to hold clothes, food, etc. While they are not water-tight, the outer fabric of these backpacks will protect the contents from moisture, dust, and sand.

1. Mancro Water Resistant Backpack

Mancro Water Resistant Backpack
  • Max. Laptop Size:
  • 17″
  • Dimensions: 20″ x 12.2″ x 5.7″
  • Colors: 6


The Mancro is built for business: right from its sleek, capsule-like shape to the three compartments of varying sizes where you can store a variety of accessories and gear. On the outside, the waterproof backpack is all minimalist; peel it open and you will be greeted with multiple, multi-functional pockets, all neatly designed to carry everything and anything you will need for college or the office.

Three main pockets offer a safe space to store your laptop, tablet, power bank, and other compact devices. You could even slip in a notebook or two. There are 9 small pockets that will hold your phone, wallet, keys, and other smaller accessories such as a calculator. Pens and pencils can be slipped in here as well.

On either side of the waterproof backpack are two sealed pockets that will hold a water bottle or compact umbrella. A front zipper pocket is ideal to store little things such as sunglasses. All of the pockets are easy to access and allow you to organize your day with neat compartments.

Design & Features

The Mancro ranks high as a business backpack because of the attention paid to little details. Details such as the zippers are made from metal, increasing their lifespan and providing a premium feel when you zip and unzip your bag. Then you have the buckle straps located above the side pockets.

The straps are multi-functional as well – allowing you to either further secure any items that you’re carrying in the side pockets, while also allowing you to compress the bag with a lighter load by tightening the straps or enlarge the backpack with a maximum load by loosening the straps. You can also carry the backpack in your hand with a reinforced top-mount handle that is molded to the main body.

A unique feature of the backpack that is sure to appeal to college students and office goers is the USB-charging port that is smartly attached to the side of the bag. Now you can charge your phone on the go by simply plugging it into the USB port. For the port to work, you will need to attach a power bank, which you can carry in one of the many conveniently-placed pockets. As we said before, this backpack is built for business.

Another feature that will endear it to students and professionals is the anti-theft lock that comes along with the backpack. The number lock can attach to the zippers of the main compartment, providing safety and security from prying eyes. The feature comes in handy when you travel for work.

Build Quality

Talking of build, the Mancro has been created from a tough, durable, but more importantly, eco-friendly material. The result is a backpack that can not only endure the daily grind, including long commutes, but also protect the valuable contents inside from harmful elements such as dirt, dust, and especially rain.

The backpack’s nylon shell whisks away the water, not allowing excess moisture to creep into the compartments. It performs ably in a light to medium drizzle, but a steady downpour will test its protection to the limit.


The Mancro waterproof backpack is an ideal accessory to use for work or college. It is comfortable to wear with an ergonomic design. The backpack is sleek and stylish with a textured design and a range of color options to choose from.

2. SwissGear Travel Backpack

SwissGear Travel Backpack
  • Max. Laptop Size:
  • 17″
  • Dimensions: 18.5″ x 135″ x 9″
  • Colors: 7

You can always trust the Swiss to create products that are high in quality and pinpoint on precision. The SwissGear then should not surprise anyone with its immense range of features that make traveling a stress-free experience. In fact, it will be hard to find a backpack that has been made more for travel than the SwissGear.

We all know how cumbersome it can be when you have to remove your digital appliances and place it on a separate tray during the security check at airports. The SwissGear Travel Backpack allows you to do so without breaking a sweat, and without even having to remove your laptops or tablets.

With a simple, but intelligent, design function – you can open the large, main compartment all the way to the bag’s bottom, allowing you to lay the bag flat for the scanners. The compartment has a padded pocket that can safely hold a 17” laptop, as well as a mesh sleeve for you to store your tablet. Once the compartment is open all the way down, the two computing devices can be easily scanned and checked by the airport authorities.


Travel can throw many a curveball at you; the SwissGear has been designed to handle each and every one of them. Take its outer fabric, for instance. The 1200D ballistic polyester fabric can withstand any kind of rough handling without showing any effects. The material is also weather-resistant; meaning that you can carry it from snowing cold to sweltering heat to pouring rain, and not a thread of the backpack will seem out of place.

Ergonomic Design

Another aspect of the waterproof backpack worth talking about is its ergonomic design. It is essential that a travel bag has the right features that reduce strain. The SwissGear has an extra padded back panel that is contoured to take the natural shape of the spine, enabling you to maintain the correct posture when you walk with the bag.

The back panel also has an air-venting technology that allows the fabric to breathe, reducing any heat accumulation on your skin, whisking away sweat. You can carry the backpack for hours and never feel like you are carrying it.

The shoulder straps also play an important role in reducing strain on the joints. Unlike the regular backpacks where the straps are only padded, the SwissGear has contoured straps that evenly distribute the load along with suspension technology that further reduces any excess strain that you may feel.


The waterproof backpack gives users a neat, compartmentalized storage space that can store all the essentials for a travel trip. There is an inner pouch where you can store your phone, a mesh pocket that can hold earphones and chargers, and an accordion-style file cabinet that can hold books and other accessories. You will even find space to stash foldable headphones and a water bottle.

There is also a molded pouch attached on the outside where you can store your keys and wallet. Near the bag’s top section is an easy access pouch where you can store items that you need quick access to, such as sunglasses.


The SwissGear Travel Backpack leaves no doubt about its USP (unique selling point) – travel. The bag has been styled and designed to provide maximum comfort on your travels. Due to its tough, durable outer fabric, you can also use the bag for outdoor activities as well. The backpack feels like a one-stop solution for all of your needs.

The ergonomic comfort, as well as the organized compartments, enable you to carry all your gear and accessories without feeling the weight. Come rain, hail, or sunshine, the backpack will tough it out without displaying signs of wear. The SwissGear Travel Backpack is a versatile and high-quality product that is certainly worth the retail price.

3. Yorepek Extra Large Backpack

Yorepek Extra Large Backpack
  • Max. Laptop Size:
  • 17″
  • Dimensions: 19.4″ x 14.6″ x 10.4″
  • Colors: 2


As its name suggests, the Yorepek Extra Large Backpack packs in some serious punch in terms of size! With the amount of storage capacity on offer, you’ll likely be able to pack in all of your essentials and then some.

There are three main compartments: The first, the large compartment has a laptop pouch and a mesh pocket for tablets or other accessories. The benefit here is not only of size but also of intelligent design which allows you to open the waterproof backpack flat for the scanners at the airport.

This ensures you won’t have to remove your laptop and other tech gear when going through,  saving time and effort in the process. The second and third compartments can fit other heavy gear and accessories, further adding to its travel-companion credo. You could also easily carry a change of clothing too.

The one issue you may face with a big backpack is the ease with which you can access your belongings. The Yorepek Extra Large Backpack takes care of this by providing easy access pockets located on the bag’s exterior.

Here, you can stash your medium and small accessories such as phone, wallet, keys, power bank, and ID. With a single pull, all of the items will be accessible, neatly placed in pockets that prevent clutter.

Design Intelligence

The travel backpack showcases its design intelligence with two features that impressed us a great deal. One is the USB-charging port which allows you to charge your phone and other devices while on the go. All you need to do is connect a power bank to the charging port and then hook your device to the port.

The other feature is the small but highly functional earphone and headphone port. The slot allows you to listen to your favorite tunes, hands-free, with your device safely stored inside the backpack.


For an extra-large backpack, the Yorepek Extra Large Backpack sure is easy to carry around all day. This is thanks to its ergonomics. The back panel is made from a breathable mesh material that allows circulation, keeping the skin fresh – even after continuous contact.

The shoulder straps also play an important role. Their curved design helps to evenly distribute the backpack’s weight, without adding strain to your neck and lower back. The straps are made with a honeycomb pattern which enables them to hold weight without transferring the load to your shoulder joints.


The Yorepek Extra Large Backpack is, no doubt, a heavy-duty multitasker. The size and dimensions of the bag make it an ideal companion for travel and other outdoor activities. What works in its favor is that it has maximized its strengths, providing ample storage space to carry all your belongings, with a minimum of strain.

4. Matein Slim Backpack

The Matein Slim Backpack
  • Max. Laptop Size:
  • 15.6″
  • Dimensions: 18″ x 12″ x 7.8″
  • Colors: 7


From the heavy-duty, big backpacks – we make our way to a more compact and slimmer waterproof backpack that is an all-rounder in its truest sense. The Matein Slim Backpack offers the right dimensions, without compromising on either storage capacity or functionality, to deliver a versatile product.

The main benefit is that you can carry the backpack just about everywhere you go: right from the more casual college campus, to the more formal office environment, to the open outdoors.


What allows the Slim Backpack to perform admirably in any condition is the neatly compartmentalized storage space divided into three main zipped units. The rear compartment has a padded sleeve, fastened with a Velcro strap, to keep your laptop or any other computing device safe.

Even if the bag were to accidentally fall, there is enough cushion to protect the device from structural damage. The rear compartment can also fit thin notebooks and other stationery.

The Matein Slim Backpack is a bit different from its peers, by allowing the middle compartment to hold the largest storage space. Here you can carry a variety of books, or even food and beverages. A well-packed lunch will stay fresh and crisp. If you plan to go for a weekend hike, then the middle compartment can easily carry your change of clothes and other essentials, including bulky gear and accessories.

The third compartment that sits right on the front of the bag has been designed for small-sized, valuable accessories such as your smartphone, power bank, wallet, keys, and foldable headphones. The easy-access compartment has separate pockets to store each accessory, allowing you to quickly get to them when the need arises.


Apart from the three main compartments, there are other smartly designed pockets that allow you to pack more with a single bag. Elasticised pockets have been placed on either side of the bag to hold water bottles. They can really come in handy when you are out on a hot day, or on a long hike. You also have a slim zipped pocket right in front of the bag that can store devices such as an ebook reader.

Perhaps one of our favorite storage features is the one located on the back panel, usually reserved for ergonomic comfort. The Matein Slim Backpack maximizes its storage capacity with a zipped pocket on the back that can hold any flat accessories, should the bag be filled to the brim.

Design Intelligence

One of the most intelligent features of the waterproof laptop backpack is its ability to charge your devices while you are on the go. A USB port located on the bag’s outer shell allows you to plug in your device, which then connects to a power bank inside. The feature saves you a lot of time and effort when your device runs low on battery and there are no charging stations nearby.

What makes the Matein Slim Backpack an ideal travel companion is attention paid to the little details – such as a luggage strap which allows you to secure the backpack to the handle of a rolling bag saving you the effort of wearing it over your shoulders.

The back pocket that we referred to earlier is more than just an additional storage space too, it also allows you to discreetly store your valuables, keeping them away from prying eyes. Think of it as an anti-theft pocket.


The Matein Slim Backpack can carry all your accessories and valuables without being too big or bulky. Its versatile nature allows you to use the bag for a variety of indoor and outdoor conditions. The backpack also has a dash of style about it, offered in a variety of colors, making it an ideal waterproof backpack for college.

They say don’t judge a book by its cover but the Outlander Backpack, however, can be judged by exactly that. When it comes to portable, compact, lightweight backpacks – few can compare to the one that sits at No.5 on our list. The best part is that it is water-resistant to boot, enabling you to carry the rucksack around almost anywhere you go.

The main feature of the Outlander is its solid build and design that endures many a challenging environment. Crafted from a rip and tear-resistant nylon fabric, the outer fabric will protect the contents inside from harmful elements such as dust, sand, and excess moisture.

The fabric also bestows the waterproof backpack with enough strength to hold up to 30-liters of storage capacity. Think all the items that you need for a weekend trip – shoes, clothes, food and beverages, laptop, camera, power bank, headphones, wallet, sunscreen, sunglasses – will fit neatly inside. And this from a backpack that folds inside its very own front pocket.


The smart design of the bag allows the Outlander to carry far more than you expect it to. There are two main compartments where you can store the majority of your items. The second, a smaller compartment is ideal for storing compact devices such as your phone. You could also stash your keys and wallet here.

Where the Outlander truly makes its mark is that it does not allow its compact size to come in the way of storage capacity. Apart from the main compartments, there are mesh pockets on either side that can easily hold large water bottles or other travel accessories such as umbrellas and torches.


The waterproof backpack is able to carry excess load despite its lightweight frame because of intelligent ergonomics. The back panel provides a comfortable, breathable surface that provides the correct posture for your spine.

The shoulder straps are contoured, allowing them to better distribute the weight, instead of focusing it on the joints. The other feature that allows the rucksack to carry an impressive load is that the stress joints are double tacked, providing additional support and longevity.

2. Såk Gear BackSåk Waterproof Backpack

Såk Gear BackSåk Waterproof Backpack
  • Capacity: 25L / 35L

  • Colors: 7


Bags like the Sak Gear Backsak Waterproof Backpack make us fall in love with the backpack over and over again. Designed to be the centerpiece anywhere you take it, and you can carry the backpack almost anywhere, the Backsak has the sort of eye-catching looks that will make you a proud owner.

The entire bag seems like it has been molded from a single piece, adding to the overall aesthetic. The minimalist approach makes it a compact accessory that can very well hold whatever you fill it with.


The first impression that the Sak Gear Backsak Waterproof Backpack makes is that it is a bold style piece. However, let that not fool you into thinking that there is nothing more to the backpack. Beneath the stylish surface lies a skin crafted from one of the toughest materials used in the construction of bags – 500D PVC.

The heavy-duty fabric is extremely tough on the outside, sealing the backpack off to any foreign elements such as dirt, dust, grime, And especially water. On the inside, the same material offers a lightweight option that keeps the skeletal weight of the Backsak as low as possible.

There are a few design elements as well, apart from the PVC skin, that works to keep the Sak Gear completely waterproof. If you take a close look at the backpack, you will not observe a tiny, albeit common feature: stitched seams.

The seams on the Backsak are instead welded together. This provides further protection for the contents inside. The other design element that keeps the harmful elements away is the fold-down top. This provides an additional layer that covers the zip area to prevent any accidental leaking in of moisture or dust.


What makes the Backsack an ideal accessory that can be carried and used in a variety of settings is its ergonomic comfort. For a bag based on a minimalist aesthetic, it is imperative that there is also minimum strain placed on the user when they carry it around. With a padded shoulder strap that sticks close to you, the Backsak offers the right ergonomics that enable you to wear the rucksack for long periods of time.

The straps also have a contoured shape to them that gets the backpack as close to your body as possible. The second aspect that elevates the bag’s comfort factor is the back panel constructed from breathable mesh. The dual advantage here is that the back panel relieves any stress that may be placed on your back and spine with a supportive cushion, and the breathable fabric does not overheat the skin even during prolonged use.


One of the plus points of the waterproof backpack is its versatility: You can take the bag on a mountaintop and ski down, you can take it to the middle of the lake for kayaking, or you can even take it sailing. The bottom-line is that no matter where you take it, the backpack provides complete protection to the contents inside.


The bag comes in two storage sizes –  25-liters and 35-liters. Both options provide a large main compartment that holds bulky accessories and a spacious inner pocket that can safely store phones and wallets. Located on the bag’s body is a zipper compartment that can hold tablets and a variety of other accessories. You could also use the compartment to store dry towels and a change of clothes.

Aqua Quest’s second offering, the HIMAL Waterproof Backpack, focuses on being lightweight, without any compromise on its waterproof ability. The result is a compact waterproof backpack that will certainly appeal to all those who prefer to travel light. One of the bag’s unique features is the ability to fold completely into its very own front pocket, fitting neatly in the palm of your hands.

Although the focus is on being compact, when the bag folds out, it can easily carry up to 20-liters worth of capacity. What that means is that you can stuff in items that will easily last a weekend, including your phone, laptop, and tablet.

The main section has enough room to hold food, beverages, and other gear for your outdoor trip. You could even carry books for your college tutorials. The large front pocket provides enough space where you can stash your wallet and keys, along with a variety of other small-sized accessories.


The lightweight nature of the HIMAL Waterproof Backpack also does not come in the way of its toughness. Made from a 70D RipStock fabric, the backpack is resistant to tear and scratches even in the most challenging of conditions. Then you have the complete waterproof skin that protects the valuables contents of the bag from water and excess moisture. The backpack also keeps out other elements such as dirt, dust, sand, and even snow.

The reason why the bag is able to seal off the outside world is that it features heat taped seams that create a sort of a vacuum inside, as compared to stitched seams.

The HIMAL Waterproof Backpack is a boon to travelers who are looking for an accessory that is easy to carry around, but not easy to break. The Aqua Quest waterproof backpack provides a good balance between the two attributes by using a fabric that is tough on the outside, but extremely lightweight on the inside. When empty, the backpack weighs just a bit more than 1lb. Add to this, the flexibility to fit so much inside the front pocket is what makes the Aqua Quest HIMAL an ideal companion to take wherever you go.


There is a touch of style to the waterproof backpack as well, further enhancing its reputation. It comes in three color options: black, blue, and camouflage. The black option is perhaps one of the best that we have come across, and will certainly help you stand out from the crowd.


A compact waterproof backpack can often feel a little flimsy, especially when you load it to capacity and lug it around. This isn’t an issue with the HIMAL Waterproof Backpack. The backpack’s ergonomic features allow you to carry the load without any excess strain placed on your joints.

You have soft shoulder straps that are built for comfort. Then there is the back panel, placed in such a way that it helps you to stand and walk with the correct posture.

In fact, if the bag were to fall into a lake, it will float on the surface rather than sink to the bottom. The backpack’s outer skin is crafted from heavy-duty tarpaulin material that not only repels water but is also lightweight enough to float.


The Chaos Ready Waterproof Backpack’s main compartment can be sealed shut, preventing any dust, dirt, or grime from entering. The front zipper compartment is not as tightly sealed. Though it offers space to store phones and wallets, you may be better off stashing it in the larger compartment that can hold up to 22-liters. The storage size is ideal to carry large bulky accessories, food, and beverages, or even your trainers and change of clothes.

The versatility of the storage space allows you to take the waterproof backpack on various outdoor activities, as well as use it for day-to-day activities such as college, office, and the gym.

Perfect use for the two pockets is carrying an extra bottle of water that can come real handy when you are out on a long trek or hike


The aesthetic styling of the waterproof backpack gives it a sleek, modern frame that keeps the bag as close to the body as possible.

The very first impression that the Earth Pak Waterproof Backpack makes is that of an outdoorsy bag, built to weather all kinds of conditions. The design aesthetics also point in that direction. Unlike the more traditional backpacks with twin shoulder straps, the Earth Pack Dry Bag sports a single strap that you can hang on your shoulder, or slung across your chest.

You may wonder, with a waterproof backpack this compact, whether you can carry your smartphone. With a sprinkle of design intelligence, the Earth Pak Waterproof Backpack has provided a special waterproof carry case that is IPX8 certified.

Because there are no zippers, pouches, or hooks attached, the backpack presents a unique look when slung around your shoulder. It is certain to catch the eye of people passing by.


The Earth Pak has concerned itself with extravagant storage space, instead of focusing on a compact shape that you can carry with ease anywhere you go.

Mobile travelers and light packers would certainly be delighted that all of their gear can fit snugly inside the backpack.


The tough outer skin has been stitched together from high-density fabric that boasts complete waterproof protection. Apart from excess moisture, the Dry Bag also keeps out other harmful elements that may damage the valuable contents inside.

One of the bag’s selling points is the ease of use. Once you place your contents inside, all you then do is roll the top down tightly and buckle it. Nothing more, nothing less. This simple process allows the Earth Pak Dry Bag to be used in various indoor conditions as well – ranging from the gym to college or even the office.
