No matter where life takes you, be ready for anything with SKOG Å KUST waterproof bags. SKOG Å KUST, a brand named for the Swedish words meaning “Forest, Creek, Coast,” has been a staple in my everyday waterproof backpack lineup, giving my gear all weather protection whether I’m kayaking, snowboarding or hitting the beach. If you’re looking for a way to keep your gear dry no matter what Mother Nature throws at you, here are some of the SKOG Å KUST bags I personally use and that you need to have at the top of your adventure gear list.
The BackSåk Pro
If you only have one bag from SKOG Å KUST, make it the BackSåk Pro. Made with 420D TPU-coated rip-stop nylon and heat taped seams to keep out water, mud and sand, the BackSåk Pro is tough enough to withstand anything. Despite weighing only 2.3 pounds, the BackSåk Pro boasts a 35 liter main compartment with IPX-6 waterproof protection, a waterproof and airtight IPX-7 exterior pockets, and a padded and ribbed EVA foam back support for comfort when carrying. Mine has been dragged through the mud, thrown in and out of the car, tossed in a lake and dropped off a cliff, and it’s still going strong – this backpack is all but bullet proof.
The BriefkSåk Pro
If you’re adventures find more in an urban setting than in nature, check out the BriefkSåk Pro. A waterproof messenger bag constructed from premium 500D TPU coated Cordura ripstop fabric with high-frequency welded seams, the main zippered compartment is airtight and waterproof, keeping your computer, electronics and documents neat and tidy no matter how bad the weather gets. Available in either 13″ or 15″ sizes, the BriefkSåk Pro can handle almost any modern tablets/notebook computers, and a removable padded organizer keeps everything organized while you’re on the go. Add in some comfortable nylon webbing handles with Hypalon grips and an adjustable/removable padded shoulder strap, and you’ve got comfort to match the BriefkSåk Pro’s all-weather waterproof capabilities.
The DrySåk is the epitome of value and function, a premium waterproof dry bag perfect for a day at the beach or on the boat. Crafted from rugged 500D waterproof PVC with high frequency welded seams, the DrySåk is available in 10 or 20 liter sizes, making it the perfect dry bag for whatever level of gear you need to carry. The roll-down main compartment offers IPX-6 waterproof protection, and the two bigger sizes feature an exterior splash-proof zippered pocket with reflective trim. I bought one for each of my kids, and I can tell you the range of sizes and waterproof ability makes the DrySåk the perfect accessory for whatever water adventures we embark on as a family.
