Are Canvas Backpacks Waterproof?

Are Canvas Backpacks Waterproof?

April 23, 2018

Having a backpack that is waterproof is an essential, especially if you don’t live somewhere with eternal sunshine. You pack your things, your wallet, your laptop, your notes, and you head out for the day, you need those things to stay dry. Canvas alone is not a waterproof material, however, there are things you can do to protect your valuables and make sure they stay nice and toasty dry.

The easiest and most cost-effective way? A rain cover for your canvas backpack. Choosing the right one can be tricky, but worth the piece of mind if you like your canvas backpack and don’t want to buy a backpack made of a material that is waterproof. TruBlue’s backpack rain cover is durable, easy to stash away and even has an outside pocket so you can still have certain things within reach while trudging through that rainstorm. It has a reflective logo for safety during dark and stormy conditions and packs up into a neat and tidy little pouch so you can easily have it in your backpack all the time so you can quickly transform your favorite, trusty canvas backpack, into a safe, water-resistant haven for your valuables.

TruBlue The Patriot Water Repellent Backpack

The other thing to think about is if you really want a canvas backpack if you are very concerned with water. There are other stylish, lightweight materials that actually provide water resistance that backpacks are made of. The Patriot is a stylish, water resistant backpack that proves this point precisely. Made of a lightweight polyester, the Patriot is a stylish solution to your water woes. Stylish and durable, this water resistant backpack may be what you have been looking for, and did we mention it’s only $69.99?

TruBlue Water Resistant Backpack

Whichever solution you choose, you can keep your stuff dry without breaking the bank! A canvas backpack may not be inherently waterproof, but you can add a rain cover to give you peace of mind or just get a new backpack altogether!
