As much as we hope for good weather while we are traveling, we know it’s the one thing we can’t control, especially in the winter. However, you can be prepared.


9 Weatherproof Day Bags for Travel


Here are 9 bags that will keep your essentials safe on your next vacation.


LuLuLemon Festival Bag II

For all of your basic belongings, this bag from LuLuLemon is just what you need. Made from a water repellent, durable material, with plenty of pockets and space for all of your travel needs. Available in 2 colors.


User Review:This bag is great for everyday errands and what not, but I go to Disneyland and Disney World every year, and this is always my go-to! I love how it literally fits EVERYTHING. My ID and credit cards go comfortably into the front zippered pocket, phone in the back pocket, Anker charger in the pocket under the flap, and everything else in the main compartment. It even fits my Minnie ears! Wish Lulu would bring back the red as a permanent color!”

Picnel Backpack Anti-theft Backpack

Not only is this bag waterproof, but it is also anti-theft.  It has multiple pockets and an adjustable strap so you can wear it as a backpack or a shoulder bag. Available in 4 colors and 2 sizes.


User Review: Comfortable,and it is convertible to a shoulder bag. The compartment inside the zipper rests against your back or your side without a visible opening for thieves; I thought it would be too small, but I can fit my ipad inside. The color is taupe, made out of nylon which makes it very versatile. The straps are not so elegant, made out of nylon webbing but it will do, since this is the only bag I will take on my trip. The only thing I don't like, is that the inside is lined in black nylon. I wish it was a lighter color so I can find things easily, but it has an inside zipper against the flap, and more inside pockets for my lipstick, etc.”

BEKILOLE Women's Stylish Waterproof Tote

If you’ve always wanted a Longchamp bag but can’t bear to spend the money on one, this bag from Bekilole is for you. In the same style as the classic bag, this one is made from nylon, and is just as lightweight, and roomy. Available in 24 colors and 4 different sizes.


User Review:I absolutely love this bag!! I bought the large army green one about 6 months ago as an alternative to the more expensive Longchamp bags. It has been the best bag I have ever owned. It is so durable, stylish, and waterproof. I use mine as a work bag (I am a doctor and use it to carry my laptop, lunch, binders, books, wallet, stethoscope, etc. to and from work), and I use it as my "personal item" on airplanes (it fits perfectly under the seat and holds my purse, neck pillow, books, water bottle, etc). As a result of its constant use, it has gotten a few stains on it. I took a damp washcloth and wiped it down--the stains disappeared!! This bag is definitely worth buying (and it is so reasonably priced)!”

Price: From $10.90 on Amazon

Timbuk2 Messenger Bag

A classic messenger bag that fits great, has plenty of organization options, and is comfortable to carry. Best of all, it’s water resistant. Available in 31 color combos.


User Review:I ride a lot! Biking is my primary mode of transportation. I have owned lots of bags! Most bags last a little over a year, and then they are trashed. I have had this bag for a little over a year and it looks and feels brand new. It is nearly indestructible. I ride rain or shine. The Cordura material is super tough and rain proof. This bag will probably last a lifetime.”

LeSportsac Classic Kylie Crossbody

If you like taking more than just your phone and wallet with you as you set off for a day of sightseeing, but don’t like the bulk of a tote or backpack, consider a crossbody bag. Made from water resistant nylon, with 3 pockets, you can wear it under your coat or sweater for added protection. Available in 26 color combos.


User Review: This bag is the perfect size when I need to downsize for the day or for the weekend or even for a vacation. And I can count on LeSportsac to be sturdy and well made as well as having as fun a print as I want it to have. It's a great little bag!”

Sling Backpack by Cheri

This super affordable sling backpack is durable and lightweight, with a breathable shoulder strap. With multi-compartments, it will become your go-to travel bag. Available in 5 colors.


User Review: Think parachute material thin. This bag has utilized every inch of space needed to be used by a gadget -driven- dweeb such as myself. Cell phone pocket on sleeve with charger/headphone cable outlet. Water bottle on the side, and tons of minor pockets on the inside and the clasp for your keys.

I plan on using this daily at a music festival in 100F heat and rain. This should fit my survival needs perfectly.”

Yeti Panga Backpack

If the weather outlook is extremely wet, then you may want to spring for this backpack. Waterproof and airtight, made out of a “high-density nylon and thick TPU lamination to be puncture- and abrasion-resistant,” so all of your essentials will stay safe and dry no matter what conditions you encounter. Available in 4 colors.


User Review: “While I have yet to test it on a rough trip, it is typical of Yeti products, way over-engineered. When zipped tight, it is airtight enough that I can stand on it. I declined my neighbor's suggestion to let him drive his truck over it however. Overall, it is great if you need a waterproof bag.”
