Default Simms dry creek packs anybody ever use

So, I am looking for a water proof pack to use on canoe trips and some hike in fly fishing spots. I would like around 2000-3000 cubic inch in size.

I am looking at the guide series of the simms dry creek back pack. I like the suspension system and bag itself. but, I can't find on the website if the pack is water proof. i plan on packing my DSLR camera and do not want it dunked-so if the bag is not waterproof then is it worth it.

I guess I am looking to see if anybody knows about this pack to allow moisture through the material or is it sealed rubber...etc.

Help a fellow fly fisher out.

I can take other suggestions for bags too.

It's not submersible, good in rain but don't drop it in.
Check out sagebrush dry packs, as good as it gets.

Awesome, thanks. that sagebrush pack is about the right size. A little expensive but so was my camera.
