Exposure Weatherproof-ness

Postby eric.donn » Sun Oct 14, 2018 11:37 pm

Hey all,

For the exposure, how weather proof is it? I see that the small pouch at the top is made with a different fabric - will it wick water into the main pack?

Also, how many of the seams would I need to seal? All of the ones around the frame attachments too?

The large zipper has a flap and the compression can be configured for fast access to the bag or good coverage.

You would seal the inside of the seams where the pocket and mesh are attached

I don't think people mess with the seams by the frame much , but maybe someone else will chime in .

Overall I would never expect the exposure to be submersion proof but I think with a little sealing it should do fine for upright walking
