Cinch cord design looks awesome and the bag is light and very packable.
Pulling the Z cord to compress the contents is a little challenging as I kept pulling and pulling. It pulled more from one side so I had to work the cord over from the other side and ended up with one really long cinch cord hanging off the sack. Holding the release button to release the cinch cord was also more tedious. My contents of 2 fleece coats did not spring back to full size so I had to manually pull some of the cord back thru in reverse to fully expand the bag.
If I were to buy again, I would go with something like the "Outdoor Research Ultralight Compression Sack". Its similarly light weight and has a design with multiple short compression straps so you can tug one on each side to compress and then quickly release them to retrieve your contents.

Cool compression sack, light and seems to be made of strong material. It just fit my 20 degree REI sleeping bag, I ended up returning this and ordering the 12L just so I had a little more room and easier time stuffing the sleeping bag. I haven't used this yet so I'm not sure if the cords will get in the way as some other reviews have said but they are really nice and work well to really get the bag compressed quickly and easily. Would recommend this product.

Ordered this to compress a midweight fleect sleeping bag liner and it does the job perfectly. The color makes it stand out among other things when you have a lot of things packed.
This is a nice lightweight compression sack that is well made and well thought out - it rolls into its own little pocket when not in use.
