Pros Durable, waterproof material, easy to carry, welded seams, good packable shapeDurable, easy to use, comfortable to haul aroundNearly watertight, durable, lightweight, white interior helps you find thingsLightweight, easy to use, good compression designVery durable, easy to remove backpack straps, oversized capacity, simple metal clips
Cons Harness is very involved to remove, uncomfortable for long distances, too short to easily get three rolls inExpensive, largeWill leak under duress, no easy carry straps, seams taped not weldedNot for use as a stand-alone bagLeaks if packed improperly, metal hooks take longer to use, tough to keep organized
Bottom Line This pack is highly portable but we find its features a bit cumbersome to useBe prepared for even the wettest adventures with this impenetrable productQuality protection from splashes and brief submersions for a low priceThis waterproof stuff sack has all the features you need to keep your sleeping bag warm and securely stowedA simple, durable backpack option, but may be over the top for simple everyday use
