Introducing the Booē Hybrid 20 Waterproof Backpack

The first 100% waterproof, dustproof, submersible, and floating backpack engineered with new TRU Zip™ Waterproof Zippers. The Hybrid 20 Waterproof Backpack has you covered whether you’re heading out on the boat, hanging out at the beach, or commuting to the office. From the beach to city streets, keep your things safe, dry, and protected from the elements.


TRU Zip™ Waterproof Zippers - A NEW Revolution in Zipper Technology

The patented TRU Zip™ design is the first silent, sliding, toothless, and TRUly waterproof zipper system on the market. This complete zipper system introduces a fully-closed assembly that can be RF welded in applications that were never possible before. With an intuitive pull-to-close design that secures into an overmolded garage, TRU Zip™ offers a confident closure you can feel.

"TRU-Zip is the best innovation I’ve found in the entire outdoor industry in at least the past 5 years."

"TRU Zip technology represents the industry’s first toothless, waterproof zipper. Using the same extrusion methods behind the brand’s Gear Ties, the TRU Zip is airtight, resists snagging your gear, and repairs itself.”

"When the “TRU Zip” head docks into the depression at the far end, the soft bag is absolutely airtight: putting a solid hundred pounds of force on the top didn’t produce so much as a squeak.”

“[TRU ZIP] is completely waterproof — not just water-resistant, as many zippers billed as “waterproof” are — and doesn’t use the teeth that have defined what we think of as zippers for the last 125 years. The zipper closes with a design reminiscent of a Ziploc bag but is much stronger — strong enough to stand on one of the packing cubes without the zipper bursting”

"This new zipper uses no teeth and no coils. Unlike a seal that you press into place, like that found on zip-loc bags, this is based on an interlocking ball and socket rail design—pull the zipper and the rails lock into place. Both the mechanical action of the locking rails and a vacuum effect created when the zipper closes keeps these suckers sealed."

A Message from our Founder - Dan Martinson

Almost 10 years ago I released my first product, the Gear Tie Reusable Rubber Twist Tie, which is now sold by leading retailers all over the world! I’ve been working on a new product with my business partners over the past 4.5 years called the TRU Zip Waterproof Zipper which we also manufacture here in Minnesota! TRU Zip was officially released to the market this past winter and won several awards including Outdoor Retailer’s Best in Show!


I'm excited to introduce you to my new brand Booē, a collection of waterproof bags we’re launching this summer featuring TRU Zip Waterproof Zippers! These bags are 100% waterproof, dustproof, submersible, and they float! The first bag we're leading with is the Hybrid 20 Waterproof Backpack here on Kickstarter. For our project to be successful, we're relying on all of you to help us reach our funding goal!  Please spread the word about Booē to all of your friends and family! We really appreciate your support!

Our team is proud to make the TRU Zip™ Waterproof Zippers at our manufacturing facility in Maple Grove MN, USA.
