Boreas waterproof backpacks

Though not cycling specific, I’ve been using a Boreas pack- the ultralight Topaz, for a little while now for day trips with the pack raft. At 25L, it’s large enough for me to throw the raft and paddles in. I can go on a day trip on the bike or on foot- and weighing in under 14 oz., I hardly know it’s there. One downside is that I’m limited by only packing stuff in there that can get wet, as it has no waterproofing whatsoever. Enter the Waterproof Series.
