Fishpond’s Westwater Roll Top Backpack: HD Gear Review

Wastewater Roll Top Backpack Review

“After 6 days of wearing the Westwater Roll Top Backpack for 5-6 hours every day, here are my conclusions!” – Capt. Jesse Males

If you are in the market for a completely submersible daypack to carry your valuables through the storm or down the river, then you may want to consider the Westwater Roll Top Backpack by Fishpond.

After seriously testing this pack for a month in Costa Rica, I recently took it on my trip to the island of Guadeloupe as a waterproof  bag to protect my camera gear while I was on the flats.

View the video below to see my thoughts on the Westwater Roll Top Backpack by Fishpond!

Here are some things that you may want to consider about this pack in order to determine if it is right for you or not.


  • Fully waterproof construction
  • 35 liters of internal volume
  • Minimalistic design with one exterior pocket
  • Great for a day trip, but not much room for a few nights out in the backcountry
  • At 17.5x10x12.5 inches this bag carries onto most flights
  • Padded hip and shoulder straps
  • Dual rod tube holders
  • Extra internal pocket for organizational purposes
  • Roll top design creates a flawless seem to keep the elements out
  • Watertight exterior zipper

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of as well as our online fly shop, The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
