Torrential downpours, sneaker waves, bow spray, and through it all, you somehow have to keep important gear dry. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution: our Stormfront Hip Pack. This fully welded, waterproof hip pod stands up to foul weather with burly 100% nylon double-coat, a polyurethane film and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Salt water? No sweat. The zipper resists both water and corrosion. There’s also a quick-drying, moisture-wicking 3D-spacer-mesh back panel for comfort and air circulation. Inside you’ll find three handy zippered pockets to secure and protect keys, wallet and accessories. The top handle makes the Stormfront Hip Pack an ideal fishing bag for anglers on small, open boats.
Patagonia’s proprietary durable water repellent fabric finish, Deluge DWR, lasts substantially longer than standard DWRs. Garments with the Deluge DWR finish have like-new repellency after years of extensive use.
