GIVEAWAY: [Travel Must-Have] The Perfect Bag for Hiking and Camping

December 13, 2015
I found a new travel buddy for my adventures. She’s chic, dependable and doesn’t mind to be abused. Say hello to my new waterproof bag from Tactics Water Gear.

Tactics Water Gear first made an appearance in my blog a few months (or years) ago when I featured the Waterproof Mobile Case and Bag (in #wheninmanila).
The bag is so durable, I always bring it to my travels (it made an appearance in Pangasinan- Hundred Islands!) It was so perfect that I never mind island hopping because I know my stuff was protected (even if I accidentally drop my bag!)
Now, I am so excited to talk about the new Tactics Gear Climate Proof Backpack!

I am not quite sure if this is something that you use to protect your back during travels – or you can use it as a backpack on it is own. I thought of using it as a latter. I brought it with me during our short adventure in Kampo Trexo in Cavite. As usual, I brought a lot of things with me – towels, extra shirt, extra shoes, toiletries, gadgets and all the good stuff!
Unlike the first Tactics Water Gear drybag that I owned (which is made of Coated PVC Tarpaulin), the new Tactics Water Gear Climate Proof Backpack is made of soft, lightweight and foldable material. I love that mine is color Pink!
It looks weak at first touch but I was surprised how it was able to carry all my stuff. The threads and stitches are strong to carry up to 20 L. There are even zippered compartments to keep your valuables.

The Tactics Water Gear is graded Waterproof Class 3. It means that it floats or can handle quick submersions. The product could be permeated by water in any of the following applications: prolonged submersion, submersions greater than 3 feet in depth, high water pressure applications.
It has a Top-Carry Handle and Adjustable Backpack Strap which is perfect for keeping balance in the body. It is more friendlier to my back. 
The body and size of the bag can be adjusted with Bungee Cords. They are not there for design purposes but it can also hold and use for hanging light jackets, water jugs and hats for quick access.

Overall, I really love this new Tactics Gear Waterproof Backpack. It is light, washable and durable. It even comes in yummy colors like blue, pink and yellow.
