    Measuring around 12(W) x 5.9(D) x 16.9(H) inches along the interior and 14.6(W) x 11.4(D) x 19.1(H) inches in exterior dimensions, the DryZone 200 camera backpack weighs approximately 6.94 lbs.

For further waterproofing, Waterproof Drypod is used, which is a water-resistant plastic coated nylon. With so much of waterproofing and TIZIP EasySeal zipper with sealed seems, there’s hardly any chance of even a single drop of fluid to get inside – thus giving full protection to the camera and its accessories.
