Waterproof Tactical Backpack
Our Kauai Surf Co. 40L Kalalau Series Camo Waterproof Backpacks are ready to tackle any mission, from a LRRP (long-range reconnaissance patrol) deep in triple canopy jungle to hunting wild boar in Kauai's Alakai Swamp. Durable and tough, these versatile backpacks are quickly becoming the go-to bag for hunters and tactical operators in wet environments.
The vast majority of tactical backpacks on the market today are not fully waterproof. Instead, most tactical packs are only water resistant and require a separate rain cover to be fully waterproof. Our Kalalau Series backpacks are true waterproof backpacks constructed with 500D PVC fully waterproof material, sonic-welded seams and roll-top dry bag closures that absolutely keep out the elements. These packs have superior waterproof abilities, having been forged, tried and tested in one of the world's wettest places - our proving ground of Kauai.
Hunters and tactical operators are increasingly appreciating the Kalalau Series backpacks. A large main compartment is reminiscent of the old ALICE Packs in that the compartment doesn't have a number of space-consuming dividers that add weight and minimize capacity. You can put a lot of gear in the spacious main compartment, so much so that your biggest problem might be putting too much weight in the pack. Multiple attachment points on the front and sides of the backpack, and also on the shoulder straps, add additional carrying capacity. A convenient front pocket (that is only water resistant) provides quick access to frequently used items.
Though our Kalalau Series backpacks have only been on the market for only a short time, we are already receiving good feedback from hunters and tactical operators. A former Green Beret is using the backpack as a ready go-bag, noting that a true go-bag must be fully waterproof to be prepared for any emergency. A former special operations Marine is using the backpack for hunting and is also strapping it on the back of his motorcycle for weekend motorcycle camping trips. Another former Marine, with NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) warfare training, likes that the waterproof material of the backpack can also protect against certain NBC elements. Unlike conventional fabric backpacks that would absorb certain NBC elements such as nuclear fallout and riot control gas, the 500D PVC waterproof material of the Kalalau Series repels harmful substances and can easily be washed with soap and water for decontamination.
If you're looking for a go bag or ready bag, the Kalalau Series is the one to get. Only a fully-waterproof backpack will suffice when the time comes. In recent years unusual rains and flooding have caused desperate situations in some parts of the world, including here on Kauai. In these uncertain times, it's best to be prepared with a fully-waterproof backpack to be ready for any contingency.
Available in two colors, the camo green with black trim is a favorite for hunters and tactical operators, but the solid black is a sharp choice also. Whichever one you choose (and we've had some customers choose both), you will be ready and be prepared for any mission, anywhere in the world, with our Kalalau Series Waterproof Backpacks!
