Aside from the conveniently placed water bottle holders (there are two), the backpack also has smaller compartments that are perfect for IDs, cash, and credit cards, a feature frequent travelers will appreciate.

If you’re not sure about the safety of your things in the small compartments, there’s a hidden zippered compartment near the bottom which is also great for storing important items during travel.

The Local Lion Waterproof Rucksack is perfectly designed to encourage airflow on your back and everywhere else to prevent excessive sweating, a great advantage when you’re based in hot and humid climates.

Disadvantages

People who shop for waterproof bags always expect a bag to be 100% rainproof, or to come with a rain cover. When you buy the Local Lion Waterproof Rucksack, expect that it will not come with a rain cover, but it does have a pocket for one.

Also, do not expose the backpack to heavy rain because it will not keep your belongings dry for long. If you are planning to go to areas where heavy rains are expected, invest in a good rain cover for your bag as well.

Sometimes a buyer may also get a rucksack with a defect, mostly with the zippers. This can be a hassle for you when you are expecting to use the backpack immediately, but cannot do so. If you experience a defect, just ask for a replacement and the manufacturer will provide you with one as soon as possible.

Verdict

When it comes to a durable and multi-functional rucksack, the Local Lion Waterproof Rucksack Unisex 18L is one of the best options you can look into.

It has made many users very happy in their choice of backpacks, and it has stood the test of traveling and daily commutes. For a backpack to be priced as affordable as this one, and yet be very dependable, you know it’s worth every penny you pay.

I'm Jenny. I moved to rainy Ireland several years ago and I had to learn how to be prepared for the constant spring/fall that is the weather on the Emerald Isle. If you're always cold, always miserable because of the rain, maybe it's not the weather at fault (all the time 😀 ). A wise man once told me that there's no bad weather, just bad clothes. So I acted accordingly 🙂
