Best MEDIUM Rucksack & Backpacks up to 50L camping things to take hill walking OverBoard OB1142Y Waterproof Backpack

These medium-sized camping rucksacks are great for day trips and weekends away, and are compact enough to double as a solid and roomy option for commuting — especially if your commute involves wading through rivers (we’ve included rucksacks that float.)

OverBoard Waterproof Backpack – Yellow, 30 Litre

‘Lightweight, reflective, spacious and floats if dropped in water.’

The OverBoard Waterproof Backpack is a rolltop rucksack with loads of room inside. An unfussy, high-quality bag with a few extra pockets to keep your bits and pieces in, the main attraction of this one for us, is the unobstructed 30L inside capacity.

If you’re someone who just needs a safe, open, reflective and rainproof place to pack your stuff (and you don’t have too much of it) then the OverBoard is a good choice.

Size and volume
30L inside volume, almost all of that is taken up by one large inside compartment. The rectangular design makes weight distribution comfortable and even, and makes access to your stuff quick and simple, even if you’re wearing bulky gloves.

It may be on the smaller side of the rucksacks we’re reviewing here, but the OverBoard is still a sizeable bag, with plenty of room for your waterproofs, shoes, maps, etc. Just make sure to wrap any dirty stuff before putting it in, as the OverBoard is just one main compartment.

Durability
OverBoard rucksacks are made using a process known as high-frequency welding, which means there’s no stitching or any permeable seams to allow water, dust or dirt inside.

That’s key for the OverBoard Waterproof Backpack, which prides itself on being completely waterproof, and even capable of being briefly submerged in water, without wetting the contents. The bag itself is extremely well made and will withstand general wear and tear without any problems.

Features
Reflective patches and breathable straps are standard on the OverBoard, but what really makes it stand out is its ability to keep out water. A seamless, stitchless main compartment mean that it’ll keep your stuff dry in rain, and if you happen to drop it in water, it’ll float.

Value for money
For a waterproof rucksack of this size and quality, the OverBoard is great value for money.

Best for
Day and weekend camping trips, or commuting.
