|Simple, effective and tough.|
The LOMO waterproof waist-pack or bum bag is exactly that, a fully waterproof bag that fits round your waist, hangs over your bum (or fanny if you’re American) and provides a water-tight haven for all those items you really can’t get wet. It’s made from a tough PVC material, has welded seams and a roll-top closure, meaning it’s more than capable of keeping the elements well and truly on the outside. Both the roll-top closures and the generous waist strap feature glove friendly quick release buckles and simple, ‘pull to tighten’ adjustment.
Aside from saying, there’s plenty of room for your phone, keys, cash and camera, I didn’t actually know what the capacity was, so to find out, I thought I’d conduct a simple experiment and fill it with water – I’m happy to report that yes, it really is fully waterproof and the usable capacity is around two litres once closed. Unlike a normal dry bag, the body of the pack has a certain amount of rigidity to it, so will actually stand up. Combine that with the fact that it’s water-tight and not only have you got yourself waterproof storage by day, you’ve also got a three litre water collecting / storage bag for camp duties … I’m sure LOMO didn’t have that in mind but given the bikepackers love of dual-use items, it seems like too good an opportunity to miss.
|Provides 2 litres of storage or over 3 litres of water carrying capacity.|
