Kayak angling is great, but as with any hobby that involves water, there is a big chance that you and whatever you are carrying with you might get wet. 
As comfortable and functional as a backpack is for carrying your belongings while accessing your favorite fishing spots, not many of them can offer a lot of protection against water. While this is fine if all you are lugging around is some extra tackle boxes or other gear, but obviously becomes an issue if you take along electronics, such as a laptop.
 
Gill has come up with a solution thanks to their new Transit Backpack, which is being marketed as the perfect accompaniment for any day out and about. The backpack was designed with a 25-liter capacity, which means it's not too large or small. In addition to its convenient design, the Transit Backpack was designed for rugged use. To protect it from the elements, this backpack is made from a waterproof tarpaulin fabric, which keeps the contents safe and dry. The interior of the backpack has a spacious main compartment, which has a padded laptop sleeve as well as a pair of internal zippered pockets. In addition, the Transit Backpack has a padded back system with grab handle and adjustable sternum strap.
 
Here is a breakdown of the technology, features, benefits and fabric composition of the Gill Transit Backpack: 
 
Transit Backpack Technology:
 
Hardwearing polyester fabric
Tough, waterproof tarpaulin fabric for added protection
Transit Backpack Features/Benefits:
 
Roomy yet sensible 25 liter capacity
Large volume main compartment with padded internal laptop sleeve
External bottle pockets
Two internal zippered security pockets ideal for keys or sunglasses
Padded back system with grab handle and adjustable sternum strap
Available in Black and Blue/Black
Fabric Composition:
 
70% polyester, 30% tarpaulin
 
The Gill Transit Backpack for kayak anglers who need something that can safely store items such as keys and eyeglasses as well as extra apparel and even electronics. In addition, the generously sized exterior pockets of the backpack is perfect for keeping your water bottles to help you stay hydrated on the water. It is also very versatile, so you don't just have to use it for kayak fishing, but you can also take it along when you go camping, hiking or other outdoor activities. Gill also has other fishing rainwear and additional apparel, so go check out their official website at www.gillfishing.com for more information.
