With its welded seams, tarpaulin material and rolltop closure, the Aquanought is a fully waterproof backpack.
The 30-litre interior keeps things simple with just a couple of clips to attach accessories, but there is an exterior waterproof pocket to store little bits and pieces.
The removable EVA foam back panel is comfortable while riding and well vented, though the bottom panel feels a little odd when you’re walking. The wide, padded waist strap is comfortable and doesn’t cause discomfort when you’re leaning forward on the bike.
Its reflective detailing adds visibility, while the adjustable shock cords mean you can strap jackets and the like to the outside.
