Waterproof Backpack For DSLR Camera (Canon T4i)

Hey all!

I'm new to the forum, and I joined specifically to find some info on a good Backpack... and anything else I learn is just desserts...delicious desserts.

I'm shooting a Canon T4i with an 18-135 STM (Primarily), and a secondary EFS 55-250mm Lens. As of right now I'm not carrying any flashes, but given that the flash seems to slow down when it warms up, I will be getting a faster one sooner rather than later... but I digress... I'm looking for a Waterproof Backpack that can hold my camera, potentially a Tri-pod, and cothing, food, water, etc for hiking trips. Most of the places we go have all kinds of rivers and ponds that we wade through, and I would like a waterproof bag at risk of falling.

I usually just use my Dakine ride pack with my camera, lenses, and accessories in ziplok bags... but I would love something a tad more accessable. I found these two here:

Which are in a real good price range but unfotunately you often get what you pay for in the world of cameras and accessories. Does anyone have any experience with either of these bags, or have an suggestions as to which bag I should look into?

I kind of need to stay under $300...but any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
