This is not a super-light dry sack. Stiffer material and a structured design lend these to a variety of uses. I load these with groceries and it's easy in and easy out of my bike panniers or backpack. The way the bags close makes for a great handle. You can fill them with ice and cold drinks, use them as a camping or picnic wash-up tub, and I have even used the smaller size to carry my lunch. Also, great for storing gear, clothing, and stringing up your food. Looking forwrd to using this as a kayak/ boat carry-on bag. Some have mentioned leakage in the small side pocket via the zipper. I haven't experienced this, but since the pocket is external, I doubt that water would find a way into (or out of) the actual bag. The clear window makes it easy to find things. So far, so good! Hoping for some longevity with these. What a steal of a deal!

I have purchased several Seattle bags and never disappointed. They are mid-range tough. The only downside that I noted on this bag is the zipper. I thought that it was a pocket, but it's just an entry point and not very big at that. It's a YKK zipper, but zippers are always weak points.

The quality is excellent, and the shape is great for easy packing. Don't know if anyone else has had issues packing standard tube shape dry bags, but we sure have.
I used this style to make some custom, actually waterproof, bike panniers. They are a welcome gear addition in our wet climate.
