Only 33 left in stock
If you train for a swimrun event or spend a lot of time outdoors, you definitely need to consider this bag for your arsenal.
Carrying your kit while running, hiking or cycling to and from your favourite swimming spot could be slightly challenging, especially if you do not want to leave anything behind at the shore during your water excursion and you need nutrition or your first-aid kit while on the go.
The all in one BornToSwim® Backpack Buoy is an instant solution to the problem at hand. Keep it simple, one bag, many uses, happy outdoor enthusiast. With the detachable backpack straps, you can use it as a large enough backpack to transport your kit while on the dry land. Take the straps away and voila, it is a dry bag and a safety buoy ready to keep you safer during your swim.
This swimrunner's backpack is made out of a highly durable material to withstand the rugged trail running terrain you frequently encounter during swimrun training, however, light enough (only 600 grams - backpack straps included) to not hinder your agility. It features a double screw valve which allows for deflation of the bag in a record time, so your transition time will not take a big hit.
The dry compartment in the backpack is able to carry your normal sized towel, jogging or walking shoes, first aid kit, nutrition, t-shirt and some valuables such as car keys, wallet, phone etc. OR you can stick a digital SLR camera inside to keep it dry. The opening is even large enough to take your biking helmet for a swim.
Pro Swim Tip: Murphy's law states that things are bound to get awry at any given situation if there is a chance they might go wrong. So, in terms of swimming with a dry bag, even though waterproof by design, it is highly recommended to place any electronics (phones, car keys etc.) into an extra Ziploc bag or another watertight compartment. You never know what can happen.
