The colour and the brand might not suit everyone.

Am aware there are loads of cheaper backpacks out there (Quecha Arpenaz 10) but it's the lowest price I've seen for a Borealis backpack.

Doesn't look like it. Nothing on the official TNF page either.

That said, I have a Karrimor Urban 30 which is "rain-proof". I would expect the same of this one. Probably not advisable to go swimming with it though!

No, what rucksack is waterproof? It will stand up to a bit of rain like most others but buy a cover if that's your issue. It's a good rucksack at (a relatively) good price. I have voted hot but would personally spend the extra £10 to get a one in a less vivid colour.

No I don't buy any cover because I want a waterproof rucksack, quite simple.

Then simply by an Ortlieb or other brand that specialise in waterproof rucksack etc. It is quite obvious that this is a normal rucksack.

Find one then. Good luck.

I've got a few hundred quids worth of rucksacks knocking about. The only ones that could vaguely be described as waterproof aren't really rucksacks - they're drysacks with shoulder straps. Which isn't the same thing.

Making truly waterproof zips, multiple pockets etc - you know, all those holes in the waterproof material that let water in - can be a little tricky. And expensive.

Now rucksacks with rain covers - either separate or built in - is a different matter. They're 10 a penny. Which is exactly what the previous poster suggested you look at.

Does this have side pockets that fit a water bottle?

I can't find anything on any of the websites that sell, or sold, that which says it's waterproof.
