Tough, durable and waterproof for all your gear.I bought two other brands of similar type bags to compare the Ortlieb Big Zip to. I had all three bags sitting on my kitchen table as I packed and compared them to each other.
I decided to keep this bag (and return the others) for two reasons: 1. I was able to pack my hunting gear (pack frame, clothes, sleeping bag & pad, etc.) into one bag before taking commercial flights and 2. To take extra arctic & work gear (bunny boots, coveralls, jackets, hard hat, traction devices, etc.) for work on the North Slope in Alaska.
The backpack straps make for an easy carry and you never need to worry about your gear getting wet while sitting on the tarmac or in transit. It's large enough to handle all your gear for any adventure.
