Is the ripstop shell on this bag water resistant or repellent? And is there any moisture-wicking property to the lining?
The "Pertex" shell offers slight water resistance but not enough to rely on more than normal condensation build-up & the inner lining doesn't wick but does breathe. This is from the manufacturer: "These bags are designed for special applications where compressed volume and weight are critical factors. Although some durability is sacrificed with these lighter fabrics, our ExtremeLite bags are perfect for the lightweight specialist."
