Topic - waterproofing a rucksack

leeoftroy - on 30 Dec 2012
I have an old but very tough and trusty rucksack, british army issue. It has travelled the world with me over the last 15 years and is perfect (given that I haven't allowed myself to look too deeply into the benefits of more modern bags)...except that it lets water in quite easily. Looking around it seems that few manufacturers are interested in making rucksacks from a waterproof material and instead insist on supplying waterproof covers which to me seems like another thing to carry around and also not very practical when you have things strapped to the outside of your bag. My particular rucksack is a kind of heavy duty nylon and I was considering buying a can of nixwax or similar and giving it a good dousing. Would this work? Any ideas?
