TimBuk2 Spirebackpack

This backpage is a fantastic choice for those looking for everyday use. It’s not the most stylish bag by any means… but will certainly keep your stuff safe. As a digital nomad, I find waterproof bags that have places for laptops to be extremelt convenient which is why I rank this backpack so high.

This bag was made for photographers who like to be in the middle of the action. No matter the conditions that mother natures throws at you, you’ll be able to get the perfect shot without ever worrying if your equipment is ok.

AquaQuest Stylin

The AquaQuest Stylin will get the job done. It’s not the most pricey or flashy bag, but it does exactly what you need it to do, keep your stuff safe.

It comes in Pink/Black as well as Red and Black. I personally like the red and black but this is enitrely up to you. Expect to pay around ~$80 for this bag.

The AquaQuest Himal is the younger brother of the Stylin as you can probably tell from the name. The bag comes in stylish black, blue, and camo. The bag is 100% waterproof and can be used on a range of activities from the outdoors to daily life. No matter the conditions, rain, snow, sand or dirt, the AquaQuest Himal has got you covered.

The bag ways just over a pound making it wasy to carry. The bag is also extremely compact, being able to compress to 11 x 4 x 1.5 dimensions. In terms of pricing, expect to pay around $40.

The Mountain hardwear Scrambler is construcuted with efficiency and useability in mind. Designed to work for all tasks, you’ll find this bag to be able to store almost everything in a comfortable manner. I see this bag most often used by mountain bikers, hikers, rock climbers and snowboarders.

The bag has the dimensions of 20 x 13 x 5 inches and is around 1.6 pounds.
