Conclusion

If you’ve already read our individual reviews for large waterproof backpacks, or our individual reviews for each of the backpacks featured, you’ll see that there is a lot to consider between each pack. Whilst outwardly, the majority of backpacks may look the same, it is important to get a backpack that is right for you – this can be down to things like sizing and torso length, weight and carrying capacity, so it’s really important to compare the models out there and see what makes the most sense for you. We hope our comparison table makes things easier for you to choose the right backpack for your needs.
