The 10 Best Waterproof Camera Bags
This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in December of 2017. If you're worried about your camera gear getting wet in a sudden downpour, one of the capable bags on our list might be just the thing to protect it. Many of these offer water-resistant coverings that keep out light precipitation or moisture, while a few employ more thorough methods of protection, like specially treated fabrics, watertight seals, and secondary waterproof covers. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

In revisiting this ranking, we wanted to make sure that we were offering good camera bags first, and that their water resistance was merely an added, albeit vital, component. Whether they were sling bags, backpacks, or messenger bags was immaterial. As such, we said good-bye to the Watershed Animas Backpack, which offered nothing to photographers in terms of section dividers or storage for camera-specific accessories like memory cards, lens filters, or a tripod. It was exceptionally waterproof, but it just didn't fit the bill. We also removed the Lowepro DryZone BP 40L, as it had suffered availability issues.
New models included in the ranking have earned high spots, as both the Ingrio Intelligently Backpack and the Tarion XH Roll Top offer plenty of space to users in addition to protection against ingress from water. The Ingrio in particular shines thanks to exterior straps designed to hold both a large tripod and a pro-size drone.
