About Aqua Quest
At Aqua Quest, we are passionate about designing and manufacturing the best waterproof gear – so you can get outside, reconnect with nature, and #LiveYourQuest.
Life is wet, our business is waterproof, and our quest is to keep you and your gear dry. Back in 1994, our founder was faced with a dilemma: either get wet, or get waterproof. Vexed by the lack of products available, he developed his own line of waterproof gear, and the Aqua Quest legend was born. More than two decades later, AQ continues to lead the industry with a global reputation for quality and durability.
Our primary waterproofing method starts with a lightweight and durable RipStop fabric, to which we apply a dual coating of TPU (Thermoplastic PolyUrethane) and DWR (Durable Water Repellent). This combination produces a lightweight material strong enough to hold a 66 ft vertical column of water before leaking. All of our products undergo rigorous testing to ensure you receive the most dependable and durable waterproof product available.
From outdoor adventures to wet urban centers, your quest isn't going to slow down for a bit of water. Our wide range of innovative waterproof products includes backpacks, duffels, tarps, electronics protection, travel accessories, dry bags, camping gear, and more.
About Our Backpack Features
Our unique combination of fabrics, coatings and closures are engineered to provide 100% waterproof protection, so your backpack’s contents remain dry in any amount of rain. In addition to complete waterproofing (including quick temporary submersion), Aqua Quest’s packs defend against snow, dirt, dust, and sand infiltration.
At Aqua Quest, we strive to create backpacks with an ideal balance of minimal bulk and long-lasting performance. Our fabrics and coatings maintain a comfortably light weight while dependably protecting your gear from the elements, trip after trip. Quality webbing and hardware round out our backpack materials.
Our backpacks are designed to provide optimal fit and comfort across multiple activities, including hiking and trekking, cycling, running, and just getting around town or country. Some of our backpack features include molded and ventilated back panels, fully adjustable padded shoulder straps, hip and sternum straps, and convenient carry handles.

Style-wise, it's not nearly as ugly as I imagined. It's definitely no fashion statement (at least not a good one!), but it's not terrible looking. The shoulder straps are somewhat thin. It's not a big deal, but my preference is for thick, sturdy, padded straps. I used the side strap to buckle another small bag onto (with two pairs of snorkels and goggles) and two pairs of sandals, and it held up.
Durability-wise, I used it for maybe 4 full days around Puerto Rico, both for walking and in beach-related activities, and it remains in like-new condition (somewhat surprising and impressive to me). I'm not sure what it would take to get a rip in it, but definitely not kayaking, swimming, laying on the beach, or being tossed on some rocks.
One thing to note is that the 10 L bag is somewhat small, or at least smaller than I would have liked. Completely my fault as I had no idea what 10 Ls amounted to. It fit two beach towels (kind of fluffy), two phones, a point and click camera, a wallet, a small clutch, keys, a fold-up map, a folded up backpack, two pairs of socks and two extra shirts fine, but just barely. It was extremely tight. If I were to ever get another one I would go at least the next size up.
I have not looked back since. This thing works like a dream--it keeps everything very, very, dry in the worst of rains. While this isn't big enough for my laptop (I wouldn't ride with my laptop anyway), it keeps my wallet and phone very dry. It is cramped with only one pocket, but this is really no big deal. The reflector strips on the straps help with additional visibility for nighttime cycling.
Additionally, this is not made of cloth or any other fabric that would cause pilling in shirts. Pilling is a fabric phenomenon that is caused by two fabrics rubbing against each other, causing small "pills" in the fabric. If that is a concern for you, don't worry about it.
I only wish the thing came with instructions on how to properly use this item. I had to google instructions on how to properly use this. I know it's a very simple design with no zippers, but I didn't know I had to roll it three or four times and fasten it. Instructions would have been nice. Other than that, a great product and a must for cyclists.
I have two other dry bags (Aqua-Quest 'The Himal' 20L & Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack) but consider this to be my Go-To bag for water-activities. After two major trips (as mentioned above) and light-usage on small trips, this bag has held up well and is still intact without any damage (there are minor scuffs) or tears. For the price, I was expecting the straps the give-out on the first trip. Fortunately, this was not the case and has held up well. The side-strap on the dry-bag is also very useful in different situations.
Due to the weight of my contents (e.g., camera + small lens, med kit, small items), the bag barely floated. If you have less contents, of course it is more likely to float. However, please note that this bag does not offer much room nor support for carrying in long durations. If you plan on having a camera and a large lens (e.g., Canon 70-300mm L) inside the bag, look at the larger bags or elsewhere. Also, if you plan to hike or travel large distances with this bag on your back, you may want to consider dry-bags designed for such activities with better support and shoulder straps. I carried this on my back for only 2-4 hours a day and did not notice any discomfort but could easily imagine being uncomfortable with this bag on my back for a longer duration and more weight.
One downside with dry-bags, based on their design, but more so with this dry-bag, is that the contents are difficult to reach. I noticed that the mouth of this dry bag is slightly smaller than others but this did not cause any problems. Also, given the type of material, there was no elasticity for any give. But again, this was by design and was not a problem; there was still much room for items to be placed in.
My scope/requirements/experiences by priority:
- Keep camera equipment (DSLR, small 28mm lens, SD cards, batteries, GoPro accessories, etc), medical kit (8 x 6 x 3.5-Inch), and any important documents dry
- Expected and experienced bag to be submerged in water for less than three minutes at a time
- Expected and experienced rainfall
- Expected and experience long durations of sun
- Portable for water activities and travel
Given the price of the dry-bag (currently at $25) and how it met my requirements, I am very glad with my purchase. My only recommendation is to be mindful of how you pack this bag:
- Plan for the safety of your items (if your bag fell on the floor, on what would it land)
- Plan for the support on your back (place soft items along the side where your back will be)
- Plan for the security/accessibility of your items (what items should be on the top)
Best of luck!
