Solid little bag.

45 liters is pretty small as far as dry bags go, but I'm a light packer and I use this bag for week-long summer trips on a regular basis with no problem.
As a whole this is a great bag. I like the lateral design as it is easy to dig through and pack, and I often find the size and shape are a plus since you can fit it and rig it down anywhere on a gear boat.
The strap system is a little weird in that the straps that go all the way around the bag are small and the buckles on them are a bit weak. I also find it strange that they only go parallel and don't cross as it makes them more likely to slip and move around. Additionally, there is one hard-point strap that works great for rigging the bag but is inconvenient as a handle for carrying around camp.
All that being said, I've had this bag for three years and it's never leaked; which is all I really ask of a dry bag.
