Gear Review: The Grundéns 30 Liter Rumrunner Backpack

For many years, we have made an effort to track down the best waterproof bags out there. Over the years we’ve seen bags come and go, and we’ve even been surprised to see some fail. This year we’ve had the opportunity to dive in to what Grundéns has to offer, and time and time again, we couldn’t be more impressed.

Grundéns 30 Liter Rumrunner Backpack is not only tough with a thick waterproof construction and welded seams, it also has comfortable padded straps, numerous storage compartments and straps on the outside, and plenty of smart storage for easy access. Did they think of everything when designing this backpack? It seems so …

The Grundéns 30 Liter Rumrunner Backpack is available in Black and Refraction Camo Dark Slate and costs $89.99 for the Black and $104.99 for the Camo. To learn more about the 30 Liter Rumrunner Backpack from Grundéns, please click here.
