OverBoard, a leading designer and manufacturer of waterproof travel and sports gear, and an official kit supplier to the RNLI, today have announced the Pro-Sports Waterproof Backpack. The 100 percent waterproof, fully submergible, 20 or 30 litre roll-top bag, not only protects the user’s contents from water, sand, dirt and dust but also floats when dropped in water. The 20-litre backpack is available now in blue or yellow for £46 and the 30-litre backpack is available in black or red for £56.50. Both are available from www.overboard.com.

Overboard’s Pro-Sports Waterproof Backpack is 100 per cent waterproof thanks to its high frequency electronically welded construction, meaning the bag can be fully submerged in water without damaging the contents. Its waterproof rating makes the Pro-Sports Waterproof Backpack ideal for outdoor and water sports such as skiing, surfing, sailing, canoeing, wakeboarding, cycling or mountain climbing. The large internal zip pocket keeps the user’s mobile phone, MP3 device and other important possessions completely dry and separate from wet sporting equipment such as towels, swimwear or muddy clothing, which can be held in the main section of the bag. There is also a handy, external pocket to store drinks in to keep sports men and women hydrated.

Padded shoulder straps, comfortable lumbar support and an optional waist strap make the Pro-Sports Waterproof Backpack the perfect travel companion for social day trips, commuting to and from the gym or office, or for taking on long weekends and holidays. The roll-top fastening makes the bag incredibly versatile as it can be altered depending on the size of the contents. For example, when users are transporting a small amount of personal belongings on a bike ride, the roll top can be rolled down to create a smaller bag. When extra room is needed for storing kit such as camping equipment or wetsuits, the roll-top can be rolled-up to create more space. In addition the front webbing acts as a perfect easy access storage compartment for flip-flops or sun cream.

The Pro-Sports Backpack adopts a two-way closure system (top or side) for added security and peace of mind when users are out and about on the slopes, by the sea or on the water.
