While they are freshest in our collective conscious for their operations in the deserts of Afghanistan, the elite soldiers that are Navy SEALs still find themselves most at home in the water. And their hardcore beach training is a testament to that, as is the gear they use. One such piece of gear is a new addition for 2018; it’s the Matbock Mr. Dry 2.0 tactical backpack.

The world’s best soldiers need the world’s best gear, and this 3-in-1 modular bag certainly fits the bill. For starters, the thing is fully waterproof — a feature that’s an absolute necessity for these water-bound warriors. But that’s hardly all this bag has to offer. Built to be used with the Mystery Ranch NICE frame — a mil-spec load stabilizer — this bag comes with a removable waterproof shell (which stays dry at depths of up to 150 feet), an oral inflation valve to give it a bit of extra buoyancy in the water, and reinforced panels on the bottom for extra durability. Available in three sizes in black, gray, or multicam starting at $800, if this bag is good enough for Navy SEALs, it’s definitely good enough for you.

Purchase: $800+
