Keeping your goods dry just got a whole lot easier! The Arc’teryx Leaf DryPack 70 is 100-percent waterproof and can be towed, tethered or carried on water by way of its oral inflation valve, which controls the pack’s buoyancy. The DryPack’s RollTop closure with RF welded TIZIP master seal zipper guarantees a waterproof seal. There are tons of great features on this system. When it must be 100-percent dry, and you want comfort for those long hikes,
the DryPack 70 has you covered. (leaf.arcteryx.com; 855-201-5307)
