Purchased for family Boundary Waters Canoe Trip

Bought five of these, one for each person in my family, prior to our recent BWCA trip in northern MN. The idea was to pack these as a liner inside the portage packs and/or individual backpacks. Worked great! When stuffed with clothes, you could remove all the air and pack them incredibly small inside the packs. At night, the bag could be sealed around the clothes, a little air could be added and they worked great as a pillow! No disappointment in the valves and construction. A couple of times I had to tell my kids not to sit on them so heavily to evacuate the air - if they were ever going to lose their seal, it was then. But they didn't. Thrilled with this product and highly recommend it for any activity where your gear could get wet - backpacking, canoeing, etc. On a final note, love the see-through front. Made it so easy to locate gear/clothes inside the bag - much better than traditional dry sacks and dry bags.
