Is the Outbreaker Duffle waterproof?
The Outbreaker Duffle is highly water-resistant, but not waterproof.
Unlike traditional methods that depend on Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coatings which deteriorate over time, the duffle is built from a 4-layer, waterproof sailcloth. This, combined with water-resistant AquaGuard coil zippers, protects your stuff from water damage.
The waterproof materials plus the zippers means that it is highly water-resistant, but because it is a sewn product, it is not as waterproof as a dry bag. Water will eventually make its way through the stitching. You will be fine in most weather conditions, but we don’t recommend throwing your bag in a lake. :)
