The Caribou waterproof kit bag is a tough and versatile companion for swimmers and adventurers who relish easy access to their kit and like a variety of carrying methods for different adventures. It can be worn as a backpack, carried over the shoulder and has hold-all grip handles.
This is rugged piece of kit that will rise to the challenge of all outdoor swim terrains and it can be easily wiped down after a muddy outing. It is made from tough 500D PVC tarpaulin and has heat welded seams to give your belongings total protection from the elements, up to zip level. You can leave it on the damp ground and sling it in the mud and your belongings will be safe from any moisture from below.
The bag features a D-shape, zip opening to the top. This fastens with a splash-proof zip which in turn is covered by a storm flap. This makes for handy access to kit and also ensures that much of the water from any rain showers will be kept out, especially if the back is placed flat on the floor while you swim. However in the event of a really heavy downpour, wearing the Caribou kit bag in backpack mode exposes the zip to the rain more and there could be some water ingress. (If you need a 100% fully waterproof option we suggest you check out the Caribou backpack.)
For carrying the Caribou, you have options: to be hands-free you have the removable backpack straps which are adjustable and feature a chest strap. The shoulder strap is also adjustable and removable. In addition there are two top handles that fasten together with a comfy tarpaulin grip for easy carrying and there are twin plastic grab handles at either end of the bag.
The Caribou kit bag has a 40L storage capacity. There is space for a changing robe, a poncho towel, swim accessories, and warm layers. There is a waterproof pocket with splash-proof zip in the top opening lid of the bag. In addition there is an second tarpaulin pocket with standard zip to the back wall of the bag and 2 small mesh pockets to keep important items to hand.
Externally there are daisy chain loops that can be used to attach items to the exterior of the bag or that can be used to secure the bag down.
Available in 3 colours: electric blue, moss green and and orangey-red
