the fogland backpack by breakwater supply
Breakwater Supply, an established brand specializing in all-weather, all-conditions gear for the active outdoor adventurer, has announced the limited release of its latest waterproof backpack line, the Fogland, on Kickstarter. Josh Lipinski, the company founder, launched the project after spending a lifetime on trails and around water feeling like the available backpack options lacked functional elements key to an outdoor bag.
‘Typically, outdoors backpacks have some waterproofing but leave more to be desired,‘ he says. ‘The Fogland Backpack breaks this mold by offering extreme waterproof protection. By utilizing high-quality TPU-layered textiles, drysuit-grade airtight zippers, and RF-welded seams, we created a backpack that withstands full submersion and ensures water, snow, sand, dirt, and mud stay out.’

tear-proof, waterproof, and airtight
Breakwater Supply (see more here) thoroughly tested the Fogland Backpack to meet IP67 waterproof standards. To ensure an airtight seal, the backpack’s seams forego stitching. Instead, the edges of each panel are overlapped and fused via RF welding, thus eliminating any small gaps or holes characteristic of stitches.
To ease common access woes and boost organization, the design features an internal sleeve for a standard-sized laptop and an exterior waterproof pocket for smaller items, such as a smartphone. In addition, the backpack is entirely tear-proof and also resists abrasions and stains.
fully submersible, completely waterproof, and perfect for outdoor adventures
