Now with more time over the weekends, my partner and I have been spending our time hiking/trekking and am looking for something that is waterproof and just need it big enough to fit phone/small cardholder/waterbottle (~500ml). Have been trying to google but can't seem to find and thought this is probably the best place to ask!

Would prefer crossbody for easy access to stuff but if there are any good recommendations for backpacks, please share too! :flowers:

p/s: not really liking lesportsac.. wonder if there are any other options?

For waterproof material, you could always do nylon (e.g., Longchamp), but crossgrain/saffiano leather and coated canvas are also really waterproof!

As for crossbody, I'd think that for hiking, comfort is key, so I'd want a soft/thick crossbody strap or backpack.

The Coach Outlet has some options for backpacks:
1) https://www.coachoutlet.com/coach-m...ml?dwvar_color=IMR4Z&cgid=shop-bags-backpacks
2) https://www.coachoutlet.com/coach-w...ml?dwvar_color=QBAF4&cgid=shop-bags-backpacks

Fossil is also a great brand for coated canvas backpacks or crossbodies with thick straps:
1) https://www.fossil.com/en-us/products/claire-backpack/SHB2346015.html
2) https://www.fossil.com/en-us/products/felicity-satchel/SHB2312015.html (strap on this might be a little thin)

Michael Kors

For more practical designs, LuluLemon and Tumi have some good commuter backpack options!
