One of our original needs to keep things dry came from our stand up paddle trips to Adriatic sea islands. Not many people do multi-day stand up paddle camping trips. We even did a blog with a few tips on how to do SUP trips it safely. But recently I got a chance to try sea kayaking. It is super fun. Because you are faster, you can cover greater distances and explore more coastline. The kayak is also much less affected by wind than a stand up paddle board so you are more independent. I mean, less dependent on weather. When doing sup trips you really have to be extra careful of the weather. Read More
Most of our travels take us places our DryTide waterproof backpack was made for. So going on surf trips, travels, kayak trips, beach hikes, snorkeling trips, stand up paddling camping… is not only fun, but it gives us a chance to keep testing the backpack. A few best shots from our recent trips were caught in this short edit. One of the fun ideas we had was going surfing with our backpack and our Mentawai islands surf boat captain and friend Guntur was more than happy to try it. Check it out! Read More
When we were looking for ways to showcase how the DryTide backpack can survive falling into the sea and floating on its surface we were among other things using a dome port. Dome port allows you to capture over under photos, photos where half of the photo is above the water surface and half of it is below it. This gives the photos a really unique look, it seems like you are peeking into the underwater world from the above. Photos like these really stand out from the billions of photos out there. It was a perfect tool to show how the DryTide backpack is comfortable in and out of the water. Read More

I has been a year from the first backpack idea and sketches and now the DryTide waterproof backpack is available on the market. The first real waterproof backpack features heavy duty 100% waterproof fabric, ultrasonic welding construction, two external rainproof zipper pockets, two external mesh pockets for water bottles, 50l waterproof main compartment with removable laptop pocket.
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!
Final DryTide waterproof backpack sample is finished and on its way for testing. We are bringing it to our Indo surf trip to put it through some tropical rain storms, small open boat rides, jungle trekking, surf trips, sandy beaches, and Indian ocean. Read More
