Need new waterproof Backpack for riding!

Hi guys, I need a new waterproof backpack for riding! I sorted out "Givi EA104 Easy Range Backpack and Ogio No Drag Mach 1 Backpack", but am not sure if they are waterproof. Anyone using either of them? or has any idea about them? Or can anyone suggest me a good waterproof (stylish ) backpack. Thanks.

I think only the R30 is waterproof.
The R30 is however just one giant compartment. Which may or may not be your thing.
The for sale link is for a kriega drypack which is fitted with straps to the bike. It has a carrying loop but is not a backpack as such.

Hi, yeah. I want a waterproof backpack, dont want something fitted to the bike. I prefer a regular backpack. Any ideas about the earlier mentioned givi or ogio? are they waterproof? or any other ones? Thanks guys!

I don't think that they're waterproof. They'd be proud of that feature so if they don't mention it don't get you're hopes up.
They'll be water resistant at best.
There are a couple dainese and alpinestars backpacks that are waterproof. As is the mentioned kriega r30.
Maybe check revzilla? It's an easy site to search on.

"Waterproof" and "stylish" are two words that don't go together. There are many water resistant (to varying degrees) backpacks, but very few water proof ones. To make something waterproof, rubberized fabrics, sealed seams, special zippers, etc, need to be used.

Here is one by The North Face

If you don't mind me asking, why waterproof? You're listed as San Antonio, Texas... haha does it rain much there? I've found my "water resistant" bag to be perfect, but I'll always 100% try to avoid rain.

uhoh.

I have a GRIP high sierra, i looks really good has lots of pockets and a padded pocked for a laptop. I paid $50 or so and it has a cover that comes right out the bottom and completely covers the back pack. I commute 94mi a day on my bike, last year i was caught in the rain about 6 times total. It worked great for me. This year Ill pay a little more attention to the weather though.

The Alpinestars Slipstream Rider and the Dry Pack are two other waterproof backpacks

Thanks guys, I realized I might have gone a bit too far by saying I want a waterproof backpack, maybe I ought to say I need a water resistant backpack. Yeah, that sounds right. Thanks for the suggestions, I like some of them, will definitely look at them. And yeah, san antonio tx has rain sometimes (Ha..) and I dont want to be shorthanded. And keep them coming. Love this community.

P.S. - Definitely looking for a stylish "water resistant" one. LOL
