Light, Strong, Thin. Fastener slides on cord a bit.

Fabric is indeed thin, strong, and lightweight. Compresses fairly well around the draw cord so you can close the bag with no gaps, although the opening is not waterproof and something with a small diameter will find a way out. The seams are multi-stitched. There's a nifty little patch that prevents the cord and fastener from fraying the fabric the cord pulls through. The fastener itself has a little issue. When the sack is stuffed (as they are made to be), it slides down the cord a little, loosening the opening a bit and reducing the "stuffing" aspect of the sack. For me, this ruins it as a stuff sack. But I'm going to keep it and use it for an oblong object that I need to put into a bag. Be aware that the listing isn't clear about where on the sack the length is measured. It's the seam on the side. This seam extends from the round flat base of the sack ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP EDGE that the drawcord goes through. So, when the sack is stuffed and the cord is drawn as shown in the image, the usable length of the sack is reduced (because the fabric curves over to form the top).
