Riding a motorbike is a way of life for most bikers. Powerful machine underneath, open road in front and unparalleled sense of freedom are what keeps die-hard bikers on the highways and roads on the first sign of spring. Some motorcycle lovers are occasional bikers, some need a ride every day, and there are more and more serious travelers that cover vast distances on their motorcycles. Regardless of the type of biker or motorcycle, most of them need a reliable way to pack their stuff. Although there are some nice motorbike top and side cases and boxes, bikers also tend to like backpacks. Especially a waterproof motorcycle backpack. One of the reasons is the overall appeal and looks, and other is that they are very practical.Read More
Everything is set up and the second generation of DryTide waterproof backpacks is ready for shipping. Improvements over the previous version of the backpack are numerous making this backpack even better than before.Read More
Second batch of our DryTide waterproof backpacks is now in production and backpacks should be ready for shipping in the second half of August. Second batch is not just a copy of the first one, quite a few things were changed, improved and further developed:
- heavy-duty 100% waterproof cloth was made lighter while still maintaining all the original capabilities – this means the whole backpack is a bit lighter
- improved ergonomics in shoulder straps
- side strap on both sides of the backpack for attaching/securing taller items to the side of the backpack. These side straps still allow the main compartment to be closed to the sides, but this is not their main purpose anymore. We found out that 99% of the time people close the main compartment by buckling the roll down top together and the side strap could be put to better use if it would help secure taller items to the side of the backpack.
- Less Velcro tape on the inside makes removing the laptop sleeve easier.
Stay tuned:) DryTide waterproof backpack 2.0 will be dropping soon.

I am really excited to announce that the first batch of backpacks is finished! This has been a long journey from the first idea to actual production and now it is almost finished. There are a few minor things that we need to sort out before backpacks are 100% ready and we need to arrange shipping from the factory to our office, but the DryTide waterproof backpack launch is coming close!

With all the fabric advancements in the past years terms like waterproof and water resistant get thrown around a lot. But reality is such that not many products that use these terms are really literally waterproof. Waterproof as in I have dropped this backpack overboard into the sea with all my clean undies and my camera inside and I didn’t even flinch because I know water wont get inside. So to clear things up and explain what we think when we say that DryTide backpack is waterproof, I am going to divide all “waterproof” products into a few groups and explain what can you expect from each of these groups. And just to make things easier I am going to stick to bags and backpacks but this could be valid for just about anything actually – jackets, covers, sleeping bags, bivouacs, tents… Read More
