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

    Waterproof without being heavy, perfect for my sleeping bag. Compression is an added bonus.

    Very clever to have both a compression and dry sack in one
    Solves the problem of how to squeeze all the air out of a dry sack
    And how to have a waterproof compression sack
    This goes on the inside of your pack as it is not rugged enough for lashing to a pack
    Make for a lot more room in my pack and waterproof

    I love this dry bag! I wasn't planning on getting compressible but the price was right and gave it a try. The 13L is perfect for a couple or 3 days' worth of (small, women's, summer) clothes, and compressible comes to the size of a small cantaloupe. It's nice to be able to keep dry clothes dry and also take up as little space as possible.

    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.

    I bought this more for the compression than waterproofing. The string compression straps are a little hard to use, but manageable. Haven't had to test out the waterproofing yet.

    Used to compress a sleeping bag on a kayak camping trip. Works well. The material is thin, if you are using in high abrasion areas like kayak holds, use an extra dry bag.

    I haven't used this compression sack yet so I can't comment on its durability. It's light weight compared to my wife's sea to summit eVent compression sack and was much less expensive on STP. It appears to be very well made and I like the shape of it. It's not the traditional round shape its more of a rectangular shape, so it fits in my pack better. My marmot pinnacle long fits inside very well. I'm excited to really try it out and see how it holds up.

    Previous review should have read remove as much air as possible before attaching top to sack. Sack has a hard strap toggle water proof closure that is secured before the compression lid is attached. While the Event bottom does allow air to escape by compression, the amount of air should by minimal; to get out the remaining air through the Event fabric you'll probably have to press the bag against your chest or ground and press the air out while tightening the compression cords.
