Undersized

    Nice bag with heavy duty straps that inspire confidence.

    The volume specification isn't accurate,. The measurements listed are for the bag unrolled. In use, the wide web strap at the top of the bag would be folded over at least twice and then you'd clip the ends together, further decreasing the space. At the end of the day you're losing 2-3" of bag space before compression. This bag's main competitor, the Sea to Summit E-Vent compression bag takes this into consideration, so their bag unrolled measures 2-3" longer than the quoted spec.

    That said, it's a quality bag for a great price on sale. The lower volume could be a positive or negative depending on your specific need.

    Wish I'd found these sooner...

      XL perfectly holds my Sierra Design Front Country sleeping bag. Wish I'd found these sooner. Packing for extended car camping will be so much easier with this. Probably going to buy some more for clothes. Can't speak to waterproofing as they'll probably never not be in another dry bag while floating.

      Waterproof?

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Bought a couple of these for a trip to the narrows. They're great compression sacks, but not convinced they are 100% waterproof. My husband and I both used these for our sleeping bags and on day 2 of the trip submerged the bottom of our packs crossing chest height water. The bottom of our packs got soaked. My bag was still dry, but my husband's sleeping bag was definitely wet in spots.

      Did the trick

      I needed a compression sac to keep my sleeping bag dry on my overnight hike in the Narrows, this did the trick and actually compressed my bag more than the original compression sac it came with. The entire bag took a dunk and kept the sleeping bag dry, even though the pack stayed wet the remainder of the hike.
