Adventure Travel Tip: Pack A Duck Back

"'Like water off a duck's...' A duck back backpack cover is my favorite, indispensable travel item—and everyone should have one. It keeps your pack or soft-sided luggage (not to mention all your belongings) dry in the rain, protected at airport carousels and absolutely comes in handy when you have to stow your pack in a bus' grimy, underneath cargo area."

If you do grab a duck back cover, he suggests using it when you toss your luggage on Joe's overnight bus from La Paz to the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia.
