Bought these for a month of backpacking. Call me sad but after receiving them I decided to check how water proof they were. I loaded up the big one with a stack of magazine and left it in the bath submerged in water for 30 mins - No water had seeped into it so I was pretty happy with the fact that they were water proof.
Only problem was that 3 weeks into the trip I was doing some hiking and it was torrential rain so I had put a few of my books into the big bag to keep them from getting soaked. After slightly forcing it closed the vinyl near the top seal tore : ( But then this would have never happened if I hadn't put too much into them.
Over all I was pretty happy with them, just make sure you don't over fill them.
