OverBoard has launched its "Carbon" range that consists of a messenger bag, backpack and - oh yes - "waist" pack.

The Carbon range is made from environmentally friendly thermoplastic polyurethane and offers 100% waterproof protection.

The messenger bag has a secure roll top closure that gives total protection against water, while the backpack offers a two-way closure system and floats if dropped in water.

Less said about the waist pack, the better. The range is available now from www.over-board.com with prices starting at £30.
