Is the ripstop shell on this bag water resistant or repellent? And is there any moisture-wicking property to the lining?

Best Answer Responded on

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."
