In addition, it is desirable that it is waterproof, with a large number of pockets of different sizes and protect expensive gear.
Backpacks for fishermen are made of such materials:
Aircraft tarpaulin – an improved version of canvas, durable, environmentally friendly (the base – linen and cotton), fireproof, moisture-resistant, but badly tolerates dampness and low temperatures; to make it applicable for winter fishing, use special impregnations;
polyester – wear-resistant, does not deform after washing, dries quickly, resistant to dirt and burnout, but it has poor air permeability and can be electrified;
Oxford is heat-resistant, low-maintenance, abrasion-resistant, waterproof, but it can create a greenhouse effect and make rustling noises;
cordura – has a high tensile strength, lets in air, waterproof, does not burn, but dries for a long time when wet, becomes stiff when exposed to minus temperatures.
The cost of the product also depends on the production material. Here are the products of such manufacturers: Tasmanian Tiger, Caribee, Ranger and others.
