Rolltop Dry Bag Backpack

👍 Welded seamless construction

The welded seamless construction makes the main compartment of the dry bag completely waterproof up to the closure.

🪢 Extend and expand

The backpack has a carry handle at the top, and a front pocket with waterproof zip, 2 bottle pockets to the sides and MOLLE webbing on the front to extend your storage.

🛄 Comfortable and practical

The Ancona backpack has 2 padded shoulder straps, each with a D-ring for connectivity and a sternum strap, while the padded foam back with airflow centre helps to keep you cool when on the move.

Made for the wet

The Ancona 30 backpack is a waterproof, tough, comfortable roll top dry bag. It has approximately 30 litres capacity, depending on the number of rolls (we recommend 2-3). It can be closed by rolling the top and clipping together, or using the strap and G-clip. Its waterproof construction makes it ideal for a variety of uses including walking, water sports and cycling. It has an internal organiser pocket that will fit a 13" laptop and other loose items, so it's also great for commuters.

Ancona 30 back pack - perfect!

Prompt, professional, perfect! Received my new Ancona 30 premium waterproof backpack from Jackson and Cole. Very pleased, the bag is well made - sturdy, strong and waterproof. It is compact and comfortable to wear, the inside has a laptop sleeve and pockets for accessories which is a great feature. Lots of space for daily use around town and ideal for that bigger adventure day hiking with the family. A good solid reliable all round back pack. Love it 😊

Product FAQs

We aim to dispatch orders on the same or next working day. Free delivery takes 2-4 working days. Express delivery takes 1-3 working days.

The main body of the backpack is coated in TPU on both side, which is completely waterproof. Rather than using traditional stitched seams the Ancona has welded joins which effectively make it seamless to the roll top.

No we don't recommend full submersion of this backpack as it is a roll top and has no zip seal.

The front zip is waterproof, it also has a cap at the end to stop water running in where the zip closure point is.
