I can understand having dry bags for clothing, sleeping bag and food and such but when it comes to other gear such as camp stove whatever type and metal objects or other type of heavier gear could see if they using lighter material than some of the dry bags out there them ripping and tearing. Not everything needs to be in a waterproof bag.
For these gear, I think 1000D or 500D nylon will fit.

As mentioned before, I just finished a 5 day backpacking trip in BC. It rained the whole last day, 12 km of hiking out. I used the OneTigris poncho and it kep me and my pack dry. Also I had some of items in my pack, in separate dry bags as well. I used a 65 l pack.
yeah a poncho or a rain cover for backpack can work well I think

Poor dry bag sales history aside, we're yet to figure out a satisfactory carry system that's durable and comfortable. This is why we haven't released any packs after the ROVER series.

Ever think to look at this from a chiropractic view? Let's find the stress points and then work from there. The UL rucksack from BO did a very good job transfering weight. Just an idea.
A fine idea, one to be studied along with our available materials and technology. Shared with designer Nick the perfectionist:geek:
