Sea to Summit Big River Dry Sack

Quality bag and durable without too much weight. Just back from an 11-day trip into the Tundra North of Brooks Range, Alaska, and with rain days of 9 out of 11 these bags worked great. I used two 35L bags for my clothes and food and even the tents were soaked inside and we used a pan to bail them out every day; my stuff stayed dry. This size was perfect for the fly in a floatplane and even fit into the floatplane's floats. Not all gear impresses me, but these did their job well. They maybe even… Full review

Outdoor Research HydroLite Pack Sacks

The Outdoor Research stuff sack is a compact and lightweight insurance bag against weather in moist or wet conditions. OR does a fine job of considering the finer details of functionality in this well rounded tote. The waterproofing tends to separate from the material especially at the seams. The Hydrolite pack sack is a water resistant bag as opposed to a waterproof bag. It is not meant to withstand full or partial water submersion like a dry bag. The bag does keep things dry if left out in the… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Pods

Want to have the best organized pack, ability to unpack fast, pack fast in any weather condition, then these pods are for you. Organization is so good that I only have four items in my bag. Crazy eh? Ease of Use: After time, you will figure out what works in each pod.  For my large pod, I have my pillow, liner, bag, pad, sleeping clothes and spare clothes. The smaller pod holds all my other loose gear, but I also have my spare socks and fleece in this pod. Features: Waterproof material with tapered… Full review

Ortlieb Dry Bag PS10

Lightweight dry bag for storing the clothes inside the backpack. The fabric is neither too lightweight nor excessively strong. We’ve been using three of these bags for almost six years until we spotted massive delamination of PU coating inside and failures of welded seam. In 2012 we received three of these bags (in 12L size) as a gift from our friend. Prior to that we hadn't used the dry bags in our trips, protecting our gear by external raincovers and regular consumer plastic bags as liners. Full review

Aquapac Small Stormproof Camera Pouch

Protects your camera in wet conditions. Highly waterproof thanks to the roll-top, but not as practical as a normal camera pouch. I wouldn't be me if I didn't constantly stop to take pictures while walking in the outdoors, so I like to have my camera close at hand. I keep it in an excellent little Deuter pouch attached to the shoulder strap of my rucksack. I can unzip the pouch, take out my camera, and put it back in with quick and easy movements using just one hand. The Deuter pouch has only one… Full review

Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack

A perfect piece of backpacking gear; always have a dry sleeping bag. Compresses easy, and it has really strong straps. I carry a Kelty Cosmic 21-degree down long sleeping bag and a Sea to Summit pillow in a SM eVent compression bag. I carry a Mountain Hardwear Ratio 40-degree long down bag and a Sea to Summit pillow in an XS eVent compression bag. Below the eVent XS packed with The North Face Aleutian 50 synthetic long sleeping bag and a Sea to Summit Aeros pillow Ultralight.Below the Aleutian 50… Full review

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

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
