I'm traveling to the Philippines very soon, and it's the rainy season--I'm told to expect it to rain heavily pretty much all the time. I'll need to carry a backpack with a laptop in it around with me many days. Please recommend a good waterproof (or -resistant) backpack! Ideally 20-30L, not particularly hike-y or sport-y looking, available in black, and with a side bottle pocket. Any other gear recommendations are welcome, as well. I'll already be packing a light rain jacket, quick-dry synthetic clothes, and shoes that can get wet.

I'm going to the Philippines in December. I don't know the full agenda yet; I know some time will be spent in Manila and some time somewhere more rural. What clothes are appropriate for women? I have seen conflicting information. Are shorts appropriate? Jeans? Will it be too hot for jeans? Only dresses? Must my shoulders and knees be covered at all times? Shoes? Other ideas? Thanks!
