8 Roll-Top Backpacks to EDC in Any Weather

Whether you’re a photographer looking to protect your gear, a student who's never without their laptop, or a bike commuter constantly on the move, there are plenty of reasons why investing in a quality roll-top bag is a good idea. The main one being that the gear you put in a backpack is usually more expensive than what you carry in your pockets. If the contents of your bag aren’t protected against a little water, you’re one April shower away from a really bad day. When it comes to bags that will protect your gear from rain, roll-tops are the way to go. And if you're lucky enough to not worry about weather, roll-tops have the added benefit of being able to expand to haul oversized gear when you need to pack more than usual. In this guide we’ll point out a few options that you can count on when the weather goes south.
