SealLine Blocker Compression Dry Sack

This dry sack has become an integral part of our canoe camping equipment. Though we use it primarily for canoe camping, it has also proven worthy for winter cabin camping and car camping. This 30L size is large, but its compression feature allows us to pack an XXL sleeping bag into a compact size, reducing space demands in the canoe and/or kayak. This sack is lightweight, durable, waterproof, and is a bright orange, high visibility color. I can highly recommend this dry bag for campers, backpackers,… Full review

Outdoor Research Ultralight Compression Sack

Does the job it was meant to do. I purchased the OR compression sack when I got a new sleeping bag  You can see why. It packs up small and leave it in with the bag 8lt pouch I’ve been using this one about 15x a year for about 10 years and it is showing no signs of wear.  Works very well. I have had cheaper models that seem to bulge at the sides (what’s the point?). That is not the case with the OR. The four straps allow you to evenly cinch down the contents to what my kids call a big jelly… Full review

SealLine BlockerLite Compression Dry Sack

Dry bags (also called dry sacks if lightweight parts of packing system) are valued pieces of gear in our outdoor equipment arsenal. We use them primarily for canoe camping, but also for winter cabin camping and car camping. It is said “you can never have too many dry bags” when canoe camping, and since we follow that mantra, we always pack lots of them. My primary expectation is that such a bag will keep my gear dry in any conditions. This bag from SealLine certainly meets that challenge, and… Full review

Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack

A necessary accessory for any down sleeping bag, combining water resistance with good compression. A bit heavyweight, but it’s definitely lighter than a pound of water inside your sleeping bag. Quite durable and very convenient to use. Fully compressed XS bag with 3-season sleeping bag inside (compared to 450ml Toaks mug) Before purchasing a pair of such bags in 2013 I traveled a lot with synthetic sleeping bag packed into a regular fabric compression sack. In bicycle trips sometimes we have to… Full review

Granite Gear Air Compressor

The Granite Gear medium Air Compressor is a nice lightweight alternative to the slightly heavier duty "Rock Solid" compression sack. It holds its own and has added features that increase its durability. The sack allows you to compress down to the strap limit without the fear of ripping at the seams. I have the older model with 4 nylon webbing straps. The newer model uses 4 paracord strings. The sack is easy to use. You just stuff, cinch the hole, pull the lid over the top and wrench down on the… Full review

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Compression Sack

Good for keeping one of my most important pieces of gear dry—my sleeping bag. It's ultra lightweight and fairly waterproof. Compresses nicely with strong tabs. I bought this lightweight compression sack in a size medium, which is perfect for my Marmot Never Summer 0 degree bag, which weighs in at 3 lb-4oz in a size long. I listed this information because when I bought the compression sack I was guessing at what size would be the right fit for my sleeping bag.  This bag compresses down nicely… Full review
