The backpacker's wet-weather special: a waterproof compression sack, an ultralight dry bag, and a mesh ditty bag.

Every backpacker needs a good compression sack for the sleeping bag, a small bag to organize random essentials, and a dry sack to keep insulated layers dry. Good thing you found the Outdoor Research Dry Drown Backpackers Kit, because it includes all three. Stash your down-insulated sleeping bag inside the Airpurge Dry Compression 10L Sack, and suddenly it takes up less space in your pack and it's protected from warmth-sapping moisture. Your insulated midlayer can slide into the Ultralight Dry 10L Sack and other small essentials can stay wrangled inside the Mesh Ditty Sack. To underestimate the effect of moisture on your down insulation would be disastrous.

  • Instead of heavy valves, the waterproof Airpurge Dry Compression 10L Sack uses an air-permeable strip of nylon that allows air to evacuate from the inside out during compression, but it doesn't allow water to come in from the outside
  • Quad compression straps give you the power to compress your sleeping bag or clothes to the smallest possible footprint
  • UltraLight Dry 10L Sack features waterproof construction so anything you put inside will stay protected from rain and moisture
  • Mesh Ditty Sack holds your granola bars, energy gels, spare batteries, and more so they won't float around inside your pack
  • Mesh construction allows you to see the contents of the ultralight sack without opening it up

Unanswered Question

I have a North Face Furnace 5 degree bag with a stuff size of 10x19 inches. Would my bag fit this compression bag?


Backpackers Kit

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Purchased this kit for a trip on the AT. Had all the right sizes I needed plus the compression bag. All top of the line bags that have worked well on my test trips.

Thanks for the great review, Tim!

Works Great

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I used this set on my backpacking trip. I found the middle bag the most useful and it worked great for storing my food.



  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

True story based on real events.

Used these to keep some stuff in the hatch of my kayak for a small weekend river trip. Well it was highwater and my little 'yak tried it's best but ultimately turned into a submarine after some insane waves. The dry hatch took on a little bit of water and my pack was soaked but everything inside the dry sack was perfectly dry. After being submerged for probably 20 minutes. I will buy these guys again and again if they get lost/stolen because that is some great quality.
Conmpression sack barely fits my North Face long size 30 degree synthetic bag and the mesh sack is great for keeping snacks or whatever. If you want it to stay dry, pick this set up!

Hi, I have a North Face Blue Kazoo 15...


I have a North Face Blue Kazoo 15 degree sleeping bag, would this fit in the 10L compression sack?


Best Answer

The Stuff Sack that comes with the Blue Kazoo is 8 x 17 Inches so the dimensions are pretty similar. I think you should have no problem using the 10L compression sack for your bag.
