Stow and Go

GAGE-Backpack

Having cold-weather gear is great, but it won’t do you much good if you take a wave over the bow of the dinghy and soak your kit on the way out to the boat. That’s why having a good drybag to stow your gear in is clutch, and the Rum Runner Backpack from Gage by Grundéns is just such a bag. The bag has a 30-liter capacity—enough to stow what you need—that can be accessed quickly from the roll-top opening, and the padded, moisture-wicking straps and padded back support make it comfortable and easy to handled while getting on and off the boat. The bag is constructed from 100 percent waterproof polyurethane material (which is also quite tough), and features an additional water-resistant pocket on the inside for things that need extra protection—like your wallet or smartphone. There is a large exterior mesh pocket for items that can get wet (maybe an extra winch handle or a pump), and two smaller ones for say a bottle of water or sunscreen. $96. Grundéns, grundens.com
