Reviews - Outdoor Research Ultralight Dry Sack
Exactly what I need
I use the OR Dry Sacks for organization within my pack. One 15 liter for gear, one for clothing. That way I always know where my stuff is. This winter, I've used a 35 liter as a "drop bag" for hiking mountains from a base camp. I can leave my sleeping bag, tent, and other items that I don't need in my daypack and know that they will be dry and in one place. Plus, that way I'm not leaving a big ol' pile of gear that may walk away. Are they waterproof? Who knows? I'm not swimming with these. I do know that when I roll them down they puff up with air if I have not purged it already. Seems to be a pretty good indicator of water-resistance to me! Great gear!
Great protection for my clothes
I have a 10L dry sack, and so far it has proven its efficiency. It had kept all my hiking/travel clothes dry during my trips to snowy mountains. It's thinner than I thought, but not to a point where it's easily torn/ripped. Overall; good quality dry sack. I'd buy it again; probably 15L or larger.
Worth the price
I have used my OR bags several times. They are light, they make organizing gear easy, and although I have only used them once or twice at this point - they look durable. They are a little fussy to close tightly because of air bubbles, but then the hermatic seal is the point after all. If they put a valve in it, it would cost more and add to the weight.
