Ortlieb Waterproof Velocity Messenger Backpack


Dry bags hit the streets with the Ortlieb Waterproof Velocity Messenger Backpack. This may not be a fully submersible dry bag, but it’s the closest you’ll get for something designed for daily use. The lure of Ortilieb’s Velocity pack is the over-sized, extra padded, and ergonomically designed shoulder straps, and the thick padded back panel air channels. All this effort in the padded back and straps have created a pack that is (from what we’ve heard), comfortable to the point you sometimes forget it’s hanging off your back. Keep in mind this isn’t a massive pack, it’s a 20L daily use backpack fit for a laptop, a couple notebooks and an extra sweater. It features one large main compartment, removable inner phone/keys/daily carry pocket and seals with the velcro roll closure that meets the IP64 (dust and waterproof from all sides) standards.

Comes in a few color options and available through REI.com.
