Summary

It works well, does what it's suppose to!

Pros

  • Light weight
  • Sturdy

Cons

  • Ends come off
  • Strings

I bought the small compression sack to store my clothes during a Philmont trip. Great size, very light weight, looks to be waterproof but I have not tested it.

I was pleased with the size it compressed to. I would much rather have straps for compression instead of strings. The ends on the strings won't stay on, so I just tied a knot on the end.

I have used it several times and it shows no wear.

Everyone knows that square is the more efficient shape for packing compared to the space-squandering circle, so Granite Gear designed their Air Compressor Sack in a Bloc. Not only does that save space by eliminating dead areas but allows stable stacking and a tidy fit in the corners of your pack. Tough, translucent sil-nylon Cordura construction lets you see what you've stuffed and organize with ease. Lighter than webbing system, the micro-cord and Poplock keep things lean, tight, and secure.
