    I’m looking for a waterproof backpack like the Ortlieb Velocity – any suggestions?

    I have one from Lomo

    http://www.lomo.co.uk/acatalog/motorcycle-drybag-rucksack.html#SID=116

    It’s done 3 years of daily use. Roll top bits are cracking a bit but completely waterproof still

    thanks all. Lomo and Overboard ones looks good – think I’ll go for one of them.

    IIRC, main difference between Lomo & Overboard is that the Overboard one i linked to has a small internal pocket (phone, cards, cashetc) to save fishing around for small stuff inside the bag and a couple of external mesh pockets. The Lomo is a very competitive price though.

    I’ve gone for the basic 20L Overboard as the Lomo was a bit big. The overboard is smarter, has a few useful pockets and D-rings for attaching bits and bobs.
