This CI surf backpack is a slightly scaled down version of the super popular Channel Islands Essential 42L Surf Backpack. With a similar layout and design, the key difference between the two surf packs is the removal of the wet/dry section found on the Essential Surf Pack.

There's padding in critical areas to maximise comfort on your back and also reduce weight around the shoulder, back, and bottom.

There's a special fleece-lined sunglass pocket to keep your sunnies from getting scratched, and there are two water bottle pockets on the front. I use one for an extra bottle of sun cream.

The side external zip pockets have a waterproof lining so you can put your wet board shorts in there after you're out of the surf.

There are multiple webbing loops to lash on anything addition you might need. Inside this spacious main compartment, you'll notice that there's a little sleeve here. This is perfect for a 15-inch laptop or a camelback.
