Outdoor Research Ultralight Dry Sacks

rated 5.0 of 5 stars

We each use the 3L size to put the items we don't want to get wet while we're backpacking (phone, wallet, access papers, matches, etc.). They are lightweight and durable, more so than the ziplock baggies we used in the past.


  • Virtually weightless
  • Waterproof
  • Ultralight material is surprisingly durable


  • None

I bought two of these 3L OR Ultralight dry bags a couple of years ago on ebay. My children were wanting something to carry their phone and other items they didn't want to get damaged if it rained. The baggies they used before almost always had holes in them by the time we returned from a backpacking trip so when some guy had them for sale on ebay, I bid on them.

They've performed as I always expect for OR products.  I have several other normal and ultralight OR non-dry stuff sacks and I have always enjoyed the reliability of their products. I float tested one of these when I first got them and water never penetrated the material.

The role top design has held up for several years and there is really not much wear showing. My girls usually have them out of their packs when at the campsite and they are laying around in all kind of conditions (rain, sun, sand, rocks, pine straw, etc.).

Highly recommended!
