    In all honesty, it's lighter than the other brands of compressible, dry sacks that we own and half the price on Sierra.

    The unit is Sil nylon, and came as advertised. It is light. It uses cord based compression "straps" rather than webbing based strapping (probably for weight). I have to admit that I don't really like the cord. I find it more difficult to release than webbing. Compressing is about the same. But, if you are counting every single 1/2 ounce, this bag might be for you. Personally, I think I would pay the 1/2 ounce and have the webbing for ease of use in releasing the compression. I am also skeptical now that I have used it 3 times how well the cords are going to hold up under repeated use. So far they are fine, but the cord outer cover seems like it is going to separate eventually. Not a fan of the cord.

    Good stuff sack. Used for a down bag snow caving. Cords are not as easy as straps but weigh less. Vents air easily for max compression. STP great price.

    I do love this compression sack. however one small but irritating defect is making me crazy. the ends of the rope which much be pulled to create the compression, keep popping off. it's irritating enough that I'll be sending the sack back.

    Great bags and a great deal... Arrived in time for our weekend backpacking trip. Worked as intended, solid construction, light weight and allowed me to compress lots of bulk down and keep it waterproof to boot. Will also be valuable on yakpacking trips. No more garbage bag pack liners for us :)

    Can be a bit hard on the hand getting max compression with the draw strings vs straps, but easily resolved using a toggle to wrap the cord around.
