    Keep your Rucksack Safe -- Keep your kit Dry

    by into-thin-air Written Nov 24, 2010

    Luggage and bags: Although I didn’t need my Rucksack Pro-Tector to protect my rucksack en-route to the starting point of the walk, I never-the-Less took it along to use it’s secondary function as a water-resistant liner for my rucksack – Even with all the rain that fell during the walk I am pleased to say that All my kit was bone-dry every evening when we arrived at our chosen accommodation !!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I have tried many of the Rucksack / Backpack Protectors that are available on the market and was disappointed with how they performed, So after having many problems with these decided to design and manufacture my own.
    Full details of how this came about are written up on my Nepal page.
    So, Obviously my own recommendation would be to get your Rucksack / Backpack Protector from Pro-Tector

    Miscellaneous: Also, after successfully designing, producing and selling the Rucksack Pro-tector for several years, I have now introduced some new lines such as a Pro-Tector Travel Wallet and a Pro-Tector Document / Valuables Travel Pouch and now the Brand New Trekign Pole Pro-Tector
    If you think that any of the above would be of benefit for yourself on your own travels then please take a look at my web-site

    Still Smiling even in the Rain !!!!
