    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.

    Good ol' waterproof compression sack. Thin, lightweight, and purges air on its own. Don't know that I'd throw it around a canoe like a traditional dry sack, but it will be great for the sleeping bag on hikes and in the hull of my kayak. Probably find some other good uses for it too. Can't go wrong for the price. My buddy just bought a similar one for 50!

    I haven't had a chance to use this sack so Im not sure if it will keep things dry but appears to be OK.

    Great product. I'm using it on the river inside another drysack for extra protection, and also on trips where there is a lot of rain to protect gear inside my pack. I haven't had them through any extreme conditions yet, but they've provided the protection I've expected so far. Material seems sturdy but lightweight and the stitching and other details of construction are well done. The only complaint would be the price, but since I got a good deal from STP, it was a bit easier on the wallet than it could have been.
