Absolute beast of a bag for paddle sports & the outdoors
Red Paddle Co’s general mantra seems to be that if your piece of gear is going to do one thing, it might as well do a few other things as well. So it is with this absolute monster of a waterproof kit bag. It can be a backpack, a duffel or a shoulder bag, and the padded straps mean you can handle those back-breaking 90-litre loads in comfort. It works well as a general kit bag for camping or other outdoor activities, but they've also added a couple of features specifically tailored for swimming and water sports – including a removable wipe-down changing mat and an external wet/dry pocket for soggy swimmies. It goes without saying that it's completely waterproof – with super-strong welded seams and waterproof zips – and as an added bonus, the rugged yet surprisingly lightweight fabric is eco-friendly recycled TPU. This 90-litre version is the beast of the bunch, but they also do a more modestly sized 60-litre model, plus a 40-litre day bag

Red Paddle Co boards come with a five-year warranty as standard – and if you think that sounds generous, it's because virtually no-one needs to use it. Their paddleboards are so well built that they've literally driven a 22-tonne digger over one without breaking it, and warranty rates stand at a staggeringly low 0.5%.
The same goes for the rest of their gear too – from beautifully made waterproof backpacks with super-strong welding, to hybrid changing robe/parkas that'll take you from the beach to the high arctic and everywhere in-between. This stuff isn't cobbled together overseas by the lowest bidder – it's designed and purpose-built in Red's own Devon facility, drawing on more than 15 years of experience and an uncompromising attitude to quality.
We've had a good old nose around their Totnes HQ, and what we really love about Red is the way their kit is engineered to be portable and versatile for multi-activity adventures. Sure, you can just chuck their compact inflatable boards in the back of the car and have a splash about at the beach, but they’re so packable that you can also stick them in a backpack and pony them up to remote mountain lakes, or spend a day paddling downriver and get the train home. Your imagination really is the limit.
This is seriously well-engineered gear that's built to perform and to last, and we're right on board with that.
Product design and build quality is second to none.
