Matador Packable Adventure Gear is known for its convenient and effective travel products and the Freerain24 2.0 Backpack is no exception. This backpack is designed with advanced technology features like sealed seams and waterproof 30D Cordura fabric to keep the interior and your belongings dry and secure even in the roughest weather.

It has a 24-liter carrying capacity and measures 19.5 inches by 11 inches by 9.5 inches when fully extended. True to Matador’s tradition it is a packable pack, meaning it can easily fold down for convenient storage and transport when not in use, making it ideal for destination hiking. In its compact state it only measures 5 inches x 3 inches and only weighs 6.6 ounces.

The mesh shoulder straps are non-absorbing so they won’t get soggy and uncomfortable outdoors during wet weather. They are not only adjustable but designed extra wide to help with weight distribution and there is a detachable chest strap should you need it.

There are tall side pockets with strap closures that fit most sizes of water bottles so you can keep hydrated. It also comes with a detachable roll-top storage bag so you can quickly and easily roll it up and pack it away when you are done with it.

The Freerain24 2.0 comes in two colors — Charcoal (dark grey) and Coyote (brown) and retails online for $64.99.
