Good for the price but must fill up to capacity for best seal

This is a monster of a bag so be sure to carefully consider the dimensions before ordering. We also bought the medium size bag and surprisingly, this bag's fabric is thinner and softer than the medium bag. It is not clear whether it will last longer though. The large capacity will allow me to stuff sleeping bags and a tent into this bag for hauling it on a canoe or a tandem kayak. My my land camping trips, I plan to use this to keep gear dry during rain. Its huge size will make this bag very heavy so I only use it for car camping. As for quality, the straps are not well padded and below par as compared to hiking backpack straps. Also, the closure system works best when the bag is fully packed. If you have a half-empty bag, you will not have a tight seal at the opening as the rolled up opening will loosen no matter how tightly you buckle it in. This is an affordable bag for occasional use but it is not for an expedition due to its hulking size and below average straps.
