I use it as a backpack for transporting camping gear - 2 man tent, two sleeping pads, two sleeping bags - when flying to where I'll start my tour and as a drybag which sits on top of my rear panniers while touring. It is the right size to work as a large carryon and, with camping gear in it, quite c...

I am gearing up for day kayaking and possible some 1-2 overnight type trips. I got this bag to act as my camping pack in the kayak. The fabric and welding is great, but the size of the bag compared to the straps (small, no hip or chest strap), will not work for me. Returned.

The pack is quite durable, my group used it as a food pack for camping in the BWCA. It was very windy while we were there and the bag held up well swaying from a tree branch. We had hoisted up by the loop on top with an estimated load of about 40-50 lbs. There are no signs of wear around the straps, however the bottom of the bag can be scratched up by rocks. Only downside is the lack of a chest strap and waist straps for carrying.
Overall, I recommend this bag. I will probably be investigating some sort of strap system for easier portaging. For the price paid, the pack is excellent.

Took two of these for a weekend canoe trip with my son. Worked great . Only downside I wish they were about 1,000 ft3 larger. I have two and really need three to get all our gear in a bag. Here are the pluses
1. Made in USA! Hard to find these days but this means its actually made well.
2. Definitely waterproof.
3. Tough and durable
4. Simple and straight forward. No directions but I used the photo on ST website as guide.
5. Fit nicely in my canoe when laid down perpendicular.
6. Backpack straps are easy for carrying. Straps are padded but not a fancy suspension as found in Granite Gear but can still be use for portages.
7. Can't beat the price
That would all depend on the size of the towel that is being used. According to the product overview above:
Capacity: 3848 cu.in.

Absolutely....! It's about the size of an extra large stuff-sack sleeping bag. I bet you could get at least 2, mebbe 3 beach towels in there. We bought 2 of them for a trip through the Subway in Zion NP, and we had a ton of stuff in there. We also used it as a flotation device, to help a few of our timid swimmers across some of the pools. Great bag!
Sorry about the delayed response - I rarely check this email.
