ALPS Mountaineering Offers Versatile Graphite 20 Hybrid Dry Bag/Backpack

ALPS Mountaineering, a manufacturer of performance-driven gear for wilderness adventures, exploration, and family camping, offers a solution to bulky dry bags in the form of the Graphite 20 dry bag/backpack hybrid.

Most dry bags, although functional, are often awkward to carry and certainly are not designed for hiking. The Graphite 20, however, presents dry bag functionality in an easy-to-carry backpack configuration. This diversity allows the Graphite 20 to serve as a minimalist backpack for short-duration hiking trips where wet conditions are expected. This design also makes portages more efficient. Since you can carry your gear on your back while still transporting your canoe or kayak, you can spend more time on the water and less time traversing the portage route to retrieve your gear or vessel.

Made of durable and waterproof 300D polyester ripstop, the pack features a roll-top closure and compression straps to secure the contents and prevent water intrusion. A padded back panel and adjustable shoulder straps address the comfort factor, while a full-length daisy chain provides exterior attachment points.

Offered in gray with black accents, the Graphite 20 has a 20L capacity, weighs 1 lb., 8 oz., and measures 5x22x24 inches (18 inches rolled).
