There are plenty of solid EDC/adventure bags on the market, but they tend to serve a single purpose. That catch-all sling bag probably isn’t equipped for long hikes through the rain or would end up soaking wet at the beach. Your waterproof Dopp kit likely doesn’t have straps for a long bike ride. The team at bitplay has conjured a solution with the AquaSeal Active, a fully waterproof, modular adventure bag. This rugged sling was engineered with a variety of outdoor activities in mind. It was built with 420D and 600D nylon fabrics with double-sided TPU coating which means that it meets the IPX7 immersion waterproof standards. So whether you’re walking home in the rain or wading through a river, the contents in your AquaSeal will stay perfectly dry. Plus, the versatile straps mean you can carry the bag like a fanny pack, sling, or even attach it to a bike or backpack.

And you can customize the bag to your choosing. Attach the phone pouch for a fully waterproof, touchscreen bag. Or, swap in the EDC organizer to carry everything you need for the day. There are even straps to carry a small cruiser skateboard or a single water bottle. While the IPX7 waterproof specs are handy, we’re seriously impressed with the modular, durable design and the variety of use cases with the AquaSeal Active.

The AquaSeal, which has already surpassed its fundraising goal, is available to back on Kickstarter for as little as $119 (discounted from the projected MSRP of $169) with an expected delivery of November 2021.
