Scrambler™ 30 OutDry® Backpack is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and simple, mostly waterproof I use this backpack mainly for commuting to and from work on my motorcycle. I also use it for weekend trips, and occasionally for hikes. I wanted something simple, waterproof, and not too big/small. I've used this for a couple months, and it works perfectly. I can just throw everything I need for the day in the main compartment, and the top pocket I use for anything I might quickly need. Easy to put on or take off even with a bulky jacket. But watch out that the top compartment is not waterproof. There's a strip of fabric by the zipper that lets water seep in. Other than that, it works great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little day pack. I wanted a simple little day pack that wasn't overkill. This little gem fits the bill. No need for a pack cover. Easy to get into with the drawstring top (no zipper).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close to perfect technical day pack I bought this for biking and day hiking in a part of the country that sees 250 days of rain a year. This pack is extremely compact for a 30L. With compression straps cinched it can easily be mistaken for a 15L. It sits quite high on the back which I find to be most comfortable and provides the most agility for a day pack. Seems to be very waterproof in the main compartment but the top compartment is a big disappointment. The zipper is not water resistant, the storm flap on it is too small and lacks velcro to hold it down and its position makes it even more prone to being flipped up. Typically this zipper will be facing almost straight up with no flap protecting it. Do not put anything in the top pouch that you need to keep dry. Others have complained about the lack of organization dividers and pouches but these would only add weight and bulk and compromise the waterproofing. I'm looking for light and compact so am willing to compromise there or use my own sacks or organizers inside when needed. The bottle holders don't have bungee tips but I find the compression straps hold them more securely and don't add weight or material the way a bungee top would. The waist belt is very lightweight and compact but not padded. Lack of padding allows it to be stowed in two little hideaways which can be important especially for cycling where loose straps can end up in the wheel. These straps are only for load stabilizing, not for transferring the load to the hips and I've not had any issues with comfort due to the lack of padding.a (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waist belt & Compression It is a very good pack. However, I think it needs a removable light hip belt. The stowaway strap can dig in. The bottom of the pack can bulge out. The compression straps do not compress the lower 35% of the bag. I wish one could compress the bottom section so it does not bulge out. Also, the frame sheet does not accomplish much. It should be more rigid (I think the flexibility leads to the need for more compression capability). Do not mis understand, there are more positives than negatives to the design and features of this pack, but can I design a perfect pact for you. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pack, almost perfect. Being a bike commuter and cragger, I wanted a waterproof pack by week and a cragging pack by weekend. The scrambler 30 was a great selection. Durable, sleek, great color (midnight blue), comfortable, and waterproof. The pack is roomy and functional and easily accommadates my laptop and two 40oz canteens in the sidecar pouches. My only desire in this pack, would be a small internal zipper pocket inside the bag. Something that would accommodate the essentials (keys, wallet, phone,etc). Rather, this bag is essentially a large central bag and a flip top cover with another roomy pocket where all my stuff can commingle. A central small pocket would bring the functionally of this pack to 5 stars. Another nice feature would be a different colored liner. Perhaps something bright to put contrast against items to facilitate finding stuff in low light environments. Other wise the pack is great! I’ll just have to fashion something small to keep with the central compartment to house the small items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Pack I purchased the Scrambler 30 backpack for the sole purpose of using in for AT and it exceeded my expectations. Initially I was concerned about the volume capacity but it ended up being perfect for all my necessary items when in the backcountry. The waterproof material is remarkably soft but extremely durable. I highly recommend this pack for almost all day trip excursions where you need a dependable and functional backpack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice pack but not really waterproof I generally like this pack. It is essentially one big sack with a top pouch. I have taken this pack to Alaska and snowboarding. It worked well for me, but when the weather got rainy and I was out for an extended period of time, the stuff in the top pouch got wet. Good thing that I had my electronics in a zip lock. While the material is waterproof, the zipper on the top pouch is not. the zipper faces your head, and if the pouch is not completly full, water collects where the zipper sits, and the water just seeps in. So, while I like it for dry or snowy conditions, would not recommend in the rain or if it is really wet. I wish the zipper was better covered and uses a more waterproof material.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poorly-placed seams. I wanted to like the pack, but the seams at the bottom of the bag stand up and chafe my lower back. Seems like an oversight in design. Also, as other reviews note, the stretch cord on the bag closure seems flimsy. Otherwise, this seems like a great pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scrambler 30 I use the pack for work and play. Nice compact size for air travel, cycling and commuting. I purchased a padded sleeve to carry a 15” laptop in the hydration slot. I stuff lunch, rain gear, a small towel and a few tools in it for work. The side pockets can hold a large hydro flask bottle. The hex buckle looks nice but a snap lock buckle similar to the ones on the sides would be more practical. I have not had it out in heavy rain to test it’s waterproof claim.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice idea but missed the mark I got this before a 2 week trip to Norway where I used it everyday for long day hikes. The draw cord frayed and then snapped in the first week under normal use, really infuriating. I've had number of packs over the years that use this type of closure and never had a cord do that. Pros - The waterproofing worked very well in long hard downpours. - Hip belt stashes away when not needed - Exterior water bottle pockets - Is very lightweight Cons - Draw cord frayed and snapped in the first week (as stated above) - The lid isn't adjustable so the pack can't expand vertically, which is one of the best features of a lid design (and one of the reasons I got this pack). - Non-elastic water bottle pouches are really difficult to get things in/out of when fully loaded (as noted by others) - When not full, the lid doesn't sinch down enough to stay closed, just kind flops around.
