VASS | Dry Fishing Ruck Sack Camou Edition

For the eagle eyed among you, you will remember seeing an initial review of the Khaki version several issues ago, and if you didn’t don’t worry we will be running through the specifications and brand new finish below.

In a nutshell the Dry Fishing Ruck Sack is a purpose built fishing rucksack, constructed and manufactured by the renowned wader and waterproof specialist Vass. As previously written it was described as “possibly the toughest and most waterproof fishing rucksack available” and you will be glad to read that hasn’t changed at all, built to withstand the elements and a hard life in both urban and rural fishing environments, with the exceptional quality control that Vass is renowned for.

The Ruck Sack itself is a 40-litre capacity and in the exceptional cool Camouflage edition, not a mere off-the-shelf ghastly combat coloration. This is now the third and latest evolution of the proven Vass Dry Fishing Ruck Sack, which has proven its worth time and again.

As with the Khaki variant the Camouflage edition features zero metal components or zips, which ultimately means the carryall will never be subject to rust or dreaded broken zips that have the potential to ruin your session and compromise the waterproof abilities for years to come. When Vass says its item is waterproof, every step has been taken to ensure it is on the day you purchase it and for years to come – prevention is very much always better than cure.

The Dry Fishing Ruck Sack boasts a wide array of features to ensure the perfect fitment for every angler out there. What’s worse than having a great looking rucksack that rubs or doesn’t distribute the weight evenly – an uncomfortable rucksack is a failure regardless of its looks, but rest assured that’s not what the Dry Fishing Ruck Sack is about, functionality and looks go hand in hand. Back tilt adjustable straps allow the bag to sit at the correct angle on your shoulder and back while the wide shoulder straps are generously padded for extra comfort. When supporting large loads there are also waist and chest-fastening straps with quick release buckles for fast and effective dismounting.

As mentioned above the Khaki Ruck Sack is a generous 40-litre capacity in one singular dry compartment area. The internal void also contains a semi-transparent separator pocket perfect for use with smaller items you wish to keep to hand. The exterior of the bag benefits from left and right side large elasticated mesh pockets, which are great for flasks, water bottles or even stash style waterproofs. There are both left and right sided Velcro loops that can be used to secure rod tubes making this ideal for roving anglers who have to pack light and stay on the move.

Utilising the Vass-Tex DC material the Ruck Sack is not only 100 per cent waterproof, but also fast drying with zero water retention properties; couple that with the Roll Top Sealed technology protecting the main compartment and you have a bag that can take whatever the weather throws at you!
