User Review: Outdoor Research Dry Peak Bagger
Source: bought it new
The Dry Peak Bagger is an excellent 'extra' pack to bring along on those long winter hikes where your main pack is heavy — filled with all the necessary emergency gear. I use this ultralight waterproof pack to stuff with essential gear at the base of a summit resulting with a much lighter pack for the steep push to the top.
This pack has been a little 'gem' in both winter and summer. In the winter it is a must to keep your extra gear dry and using this as a 'summit' pack works perfectly. It is constructed well and has a comfortable fit. The roll top closure makes access quick and easy. The emergency whistle on the sternum strap is an added plus.
When paddling in the summer this pack is extremely handy especially on portages giving you free hands to carry your canoe/kayak. The exterior pocket works well to hold small items such as gloves, sunglasses, etc.
