Wetsuit Backpacks

El Navegante Wetsuit Backpack: Built to navigate far-out adventures

Wet clothes and water-damaged phones are a thing of the past. Faro's 40L wet/dry bag is a wetsuit backpack for daily surf sessions, remote adventures, and everything in between. Grab your stuff and trek through the wettest conditions, without worrying about the goods that you’re carrying. 

The 40 L wet/dry bag has a large wetsuit compartment and extra storage for your accessories. 

Easily store your 3/2 wetsuit and a towel in the spring & fall. And once the temperature begins to drop, fill it up with your 5/4 hooded suit, gloves, mittens, and booties for frigid, cold water sessions. Then set your phone & wallet in the front pocket to protect them from water on all sides.

El Navegante wetsuit bags hold up to 40 L of wet & dry gear, but they don’t have to. If you’re traveling light, give it an extra roll and tighten down the buckle-down straps to keep your belongings safe and secure. 

The last surf pack you’ll ever need

Faro wetsuit backpacks are designed for the mindful and adventurous; the conscious surfer that values timeless style & durable goods. No more broken zippers or frayed stitching, this is a wet/dry bag you’ll have for years.  

A wet/dry bag that can handle anything

These wetsuit backpacks are waterproof, sandproof, and dustproof. Practically bulletproof – El Navegante can handle anything you throw at it or in it. 

The waterproof construction is reinforced with 600D PVC netted fabric and welded seams, protecting your goods from rain, sand, and dust. And your goods are locked up with a buckled roll top closure that gives you easy access while keeping water & sand out. The exterior is outfitted with a waterproof zip compartment that protects your phone, wallet, and keys – guaranteed to keep them dry. 

From trekking down to your local break to chasing waves during the rainy season in Central America, these bags keep your dry goods dry. You can confidently navigate your way through wet environments and variable weather conditions without worrying if your phone still works when you get there.

Front of mind comfort

Hikes to secret spots and through airport terminals are brutal, especially when you’re shouldering a damp wetsuit and a surfboard or two. Comfortability is at the front of mind – these backpacks have everything you need and nothing you don’t.

The breathable air-mesh back panel keeps sweat away while protecting you from soaking wetsuits. And with a lightweight 1.5 pound construction and padded shoulder straps, you’ll never paddle out with sore shoulders again. And before you ask… yes, the wide, adjustable straps fit over a t-shirt, winter jacket, and whatever else the conditions require. 

More than just a backpack

If you’re anything like us, you’ve lost a leash cord or two while swapping out boards. You throw it in your trunk, only to find it a few months later. So instead of scrambling to find one while the sets are filtering through, we built one directly into the bag so you’re always ready to go.

Wet & Dry - one backpack for the ocean & the office

Designed for surfing, adaptable to everything else – that’s our style. You shouldn’t have to change backpacks between dawn patrol and your commute to work. That’s a waste of time and you’re bound to forget something. Store everything in one place, all the time.


Transition from the ocean to the office seamlessly. Hang your wetsuit out to dry and fill up the wet/dry bag with your laptop and change of clothes. With 40L of space, El Navegante can be your day-to-day backpack for work or weekend getaways. Just grab the webbed handle and head out to your next adventure.

Sustainably-made for the oceans

Just like EL Navegante wetsuit backpacks, we take our passion for the ocean everywhere. That’s why, through our collaboration with SeaTrees, each wetsuit bag purchase helps restore kelp forests in Palos Verdes, California. 

What’s the purpose of a wet/dry bag?

Wet/dry bags keep your dry items dry and your wet items separate. They’re made to carry your wetsuit from the beach to your truck without soaking the rest of your gear. They keep water out and lock damp suits in, making sure your back stays dry the entire time.
