As travellers, we seem to be drawn to water, from great lakes and enormous oceans to rapid rivers and thundering falls. Even wet weather has its allure; trekking in snowy landscapes, climbing mist-cloaked slopes or exploring in humid jungles.
But when it comes to finding waterproof gear that can keep up with you, the options are surprisingly limited. Traditional backpacks don’t provide enough protection from the elements, putting clothes and cameras at risk, but fully waterproof packs are typically cumbersome and make accessing your kit difficult.
That is why Ortlieb designed the world’s first waterproof pack that can be opened easily like a travel bag: the Ortlieb Atrack 35L backpack. Now Ortlieb is offering you the chance to win two of these packs, so you can stride with confidence into the gloriously wet outdoors.
The Ortlieb Atrack backpacks were created with the active traveller in mind. The design gives maximum functionality, with multiple pockets, compression belts, an optional H2O system and more. The zipper opens like a duffle bag, simplifying your packing so you don’t have to rummage to reach the bottom like you would with a regular backpack. With an adjustable back panel, padded belts and ergonomic straps, the Ortlieb Atrack backpacks are practical, comfortable and, most importantly, dry.
In fact, the Ortlieb Atrack backpacks are 100% waterproof – even their zippers are reinforced to ensure what’s inside stays dry. Made from PVC-free nylon, you can swim through rivers, kayak lakes and walk head first into a torrential downpour, safe in the knowledge your gear won’t get wet.
Ortlieb was created by Hartmut Ortlieb in Germany back in 1982. At the time, waterproof gear was scarce, so Hartmut made dry bags and bicycle panniers out of truck tarps using his mother’s sewing machine.
Things have come a long way since then. Today, Ortlieb’s products are at the forefront of waterproof technology. They put an emphasis on sustainability, creating gear that doesn’t hold you back, allowing you to go wet and wild on your journeys without worrying about what’s staying dry.
Ortlieb is giving away two Ortlieb Atrack 35L backpacks worth £185 each. To be in for a chance to win, simply log into your Wanderlust account and answer the question below.
