Waterproof backpack cover from Wanderskye
Wanderskye’s rucksack cover can help keep the rain from dampening your holiday. Its original design is made of waterproof nylon to keep your backpack – and all its important contents, like everybody’s passports – safe and dry in case of a sudden downpour. It’s got garter edges for a snug fit, but it’s also big enough for more than a backpack, so it can do double duty as a sheet to cover up parked prams.
It doubles up as an excellent poncho as well. Say you brought your little one to the music festival and the weather took a turn for the worse. Well, here she is, looking very chill in a handy covering, and protected from the blazing sun or moderate shower (in case of driving rain, you know what to do!).
Available in seven travel-inspired graphic designs; check all of them out at wanderskye.com.
