    Hey Team,

    Looking around for a waterproof backpack (Roll top) to fish with and keep all the electronic’s dry. Must have some sort of “Frame” so doesnt blow out when stuffing a jumper in it.

    Are there any suggestions?

    I bought one of the Patagonia Stormfront roll top packs off someone on the Forum about a year ago…it is brilliant. Quite rigid back so it keeps shape when packed, and very comfortable to wear.

    yes, the Patagonia packs are great. You could check out the Overboard packs for something cheaper. Neither have a frame, but I don’t think they are really necessary. Most of the wp packs I know of are frameless. I have the zip model Patagucci and you just need to be aware of how you pack them.

    I’ve been using one of these for a few years now and it’s still going strong:

    It was way cheaper than any of the dedicated fishing backpacks and has a lot more internal storage pouches. It’s only lacking external loops for rod tubes and I can live with out them.
    It doesn’t have a frame but it holds it shape just fine.
