Note: By military-spec submersion tests, waterproof means you could repeatedly submerge something and its contents would stay entirely dry. Our rucks are highly water resistant but not technically waterproof. 1000D CORDURA® protects internal contents from rain – this and its strength to weight ratio are why 1000D CORDURA® is the preferred material for Special Forces rucksacks.
