I bought this rucksack for its compact size which is genuinely pocketable and so can be taken anywhere. The material is thin and lightweight but appears quite tough. To test its claim to be waterproof I filled the sack with crumpled paper and rolled and clipped the top as recommended, I then gave it a good dousing from a hosepipe. I was surprised to see the water just roll of and after a good shake opened it up to discover the contents to be dry though care should be taken when unrolling the top as water can gather here. So yes it is waterproof provided the roll top is fastened correctly but due to its light weight I doubt whether it would remain so if submerged though I have not tested this. Overall I am very impressed with this sack which is comfortable to wear due to the close spacing of the shoulder straps (unlike some rival products which are also much more expensive) I can't comment on durability as I have not had the sack long but as an occasional sack I feel sure that it will meet all expectations. For the price this offers excellent value. Well done Quechua.
