Lookbook: 40L Kalalau Series Waterproof Backpack
Rains were threatening on this spring day at Kauai’s popular Wailua Falls, but we came prepared with our Kauai Surf Co. 40L Kalalau Series Waterproof Backpack. Inside the pack was our DJI Spark Drone and camera equipment. When the rains did come on our hike out, our gear was safe and secure in this watertight pack.
For a time, we had Wailua Falls all to ourselves, a rare treat at this popular destination. The pack was a big reason we could confidently make the trek in the rain. You can go anywhere, at any time, with this tough pack!
The 40L Kalalau Series Waterproof Backpack is a true dry bag backpack with a roll top dry bag closure that will absolutely keep out the elements.
Constructed from durable 500D PVC waterproof material, all seams are sonic-welded (not stitched) for maximum waterproof capability.
We tested the backpack underneath a waterfall at Hanalei Bay Resort for several minutes and then checked inside for any water penetration. Not a drop!
The 40L Kalalau Series Waterproof Backpack is ready for any adventure. This area near Hanalei Bay is known as the Club Med Ruins, though the ruins are actually from a failed 1980s development. There was a Club Med at this location in the 1970s but it closed down because there was too much rain and not enough sun for the resort.
Adjustable shoulder straps, a sternum strap, a waist strap and a padded back provide a comfortable fit.
Though it is not intended to be used underwater, quick submersion is no problem for this backpack. In fact, the backpack floats and is difficult to push underwater unless very heavy objects are placed inside.

The waterproof backpack meets carry-on size limits and can easily fit in standard overhead bins. (Carry-on bag size can vary by airline, check with the airline if you have any questions.) The 40L size is perfect for a weekend or 2-3 day trip.
Multiple attachment points on the backpack can be used to externally attach and carry a variety of gear.
