5 Reasons Why The "8020" Is The Perfect Backpack for Surfers

After collecting over $300,000 with a successful crowdfunding campaign, Expedition / Units Project 8020 is now available, and it tick all the boxes for the best surfers backpack in 2023; here are our 5 reasons why.


Waterproof protection

The 8020  is perfect for surfers who want to keep their gear dry.

It is designed with waterproof material and a roll-top closure that ensures that everything inside stays dry, even if you get caught in a downpour or have to swim through a rough surf.



The backpack is versatile and can be used for more than just surfing.

It's suitable for other water sports like paddleboarding, kayaking, and fishing.

Additionally, its minimalist design means it's appropriate for casual and professional settings.



The 8020 Waterproof Backpack has a 25-liter capacity (expandable to 28-liter), which provides enough space to carry all the essentials you need for your surfing activities.

The backpack has a variety of compartments and pockets to help you organize your laptop, keys, gear and access them easily.



The backpack is designed to be comfortable to wear, even when you're paddling out to catch a wave.

The shoulder straps are padded, and the back panel is breathable, which helps distribute the weight of the backpack evenly and prevents sweating.



Surfers are typically environmentally conscious and want to minimize their impact on the environment.

The 8020 Waterproof Backpack is a sustainable choice because it's made from recycled materials, which reduces waste and minimizes its impact on the environment.

By choosing this backpack, you can contribute to the conservation of our oceans and beaches.

Just what I needed

I'd been looking for a backpack that could double as a hiking pack and as a gym bag and this fits the bill. Waterproof and spacious, I plan on using this pack for years to come. Being made of recycled materials is a huge deal for me, too.

It’s a good size to fit gear in and knowing it’s safe from the elements puts me at ease taking it anywhere. I hope in the future you guys expand the line of products offered. I will definitely be a returning customer. Very proud of your guys product, delivery on promises, and mission. Big shout out to the team over there.
