Waterproofing the contents of your pack is something you learn pretty quickly in the service or if you go out to the woods regularly. If there's one thing you can count on, it's Mother Nature being unpredictable and dumping a heavy load of her wetness upon you when you weren't expecting it.

Multi-Purpose Waterproof Pack
At one of the survival classes I attended, our group used a large dry bag to stone boil water. While other students were doing other tasks, a small team built a fire and began heating up rocks.
When the smooth stones were hot enough, they were placed inside the semi water filled large dry bag. When enough hot rocks were added, the water boiled and a few students could fill their canteens. After a while, everyone's water containers and canteens were topped off and we had a large amount of purified water left over for refills.
