We like it because it?s amazingly light and tough, and it gives a chance to whip out the ol? umlaut.

GOAT IS GOOD
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased several Cuban fiber storage and dry bags from other manufacturers and they can?t be beat for the light weight and function. The offering from Granite Gear has a couple advantages?colors?not a big deal but all the other cuben fiber stuff I have is either gray or muted green. On extended trips with lots of gear, having other colors will be nice to be able to quickly locate the right bag. Another benefit to the granite gear is the cyclinder shape?all my other cuben fiber dry bags are pillow case construction. I used the 18L granite gear for a UL sleeping bag, camp shoes (crocs), sleeping pad, pad/chair conversion thing, silk bag liner and a couple clothing items and attached it to the handlebar of my mountain bike for a bikepack trip. Real World Test--after almost 70 miles off road, it held up great. I?ll be buying other colors and sizes. Final advantage?availability?most of the other dry bag makers with this material are boutique/build to order. Fine for when you plan your adventures months in advance, and I like supporting the little guy, but? If you?re counting grams, cuben fiber is where its at.
Light, see through and tough!

Sweet dry sack! Does everything I need it to in the backcountry. Best part about it is you can see exactly where you store your gear, in addition you can push all the leftover air out of the bottom of the bag.
