To all of us who call Canada our home, we know what wet weather looks like! Of course, we have beautiful green grasses, lush trees, full plants and healthy flowers, but all of this beauty comes at a price. Many cities across Canada get upwards of 1,000 mL of rain a year! That is a lot of buckets…
Has this scenario ever happened to you? As you trudge down the streets, sloshing water everywhere, you are just trying to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible. You finally make it work, class, or wherever your destination is, and you breathe a sigh of relief. “Made it!” And then it hits you, you were so worried about your hair or your outfit that you must have forgotten, your backpack has your laptop and paperwork in it, and it is SOAKED! Shameless plug alert, you should have got a water repellent backpack like TruBlue’s Patriot.
So, what does it mean to be water repellent? If you are caught in some rain, as we often are, the contents of your backpack will be safe. As long as you are not standing in the middle of a typhoon or going scuba diving with your backpack on, you will be fine! The reason you cannot submerge your pack is because it is still made of a material that consists of thousands of fibers woven together. Because these pores are so minuscule, things like raindrops cannot get through. But, if you are being soaked with a firehose, your stuff will probably get wet!
Made of strong and durable polyester, TruBlue’s Patriot is a backpack that repels water while maintaining a lightweight design. Basically, you can be stylish, comfortable and protected all at the same time. Crazy, right? Because we live in a wet environment, we know that this is a no “nice-to-have” but a need. Because we commute every day to and from work and the gym and all of the other things going on, we understand that comfort and a lightweight design is also not a “nice-to-have” but a need. And finally, because we are all extremely cool people, we understand that style is a must! We understand your daily needs and wants, and our mission is to bring those together for you at an affordable price.
So, the next time you find yourself caught in the rain, and your thinking to yourself “why of why Canada! Save my MacBook!” Remember, you have an option! At last! A water repellent backpack worthy of your personal style. The Patriot is an all Canadian backpack designed with you in mind.
