Fast, light, and fully waterproof.
If a dry bag and an ultralight summit pack had a baby, it would look just like the Outdoor Research Dry Peak Bagger. The PU-coated fabrics and roll-top closure keep your gear safe from torrential thunder showers while the padded shoulder straps ensure you stay comfortable en route to the summit.

- Multiple Hypalon daisy chains provide versatile attachment points for external gear storage
- Ice axe sleeve and buckled strap keep ice tools safely stowed

- Q & A
Great waterproof daypack !
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
�The Dry Peak feels like someone took a light waterproof rain shell cut it up and restitched the panels with taped seams into a daypack. I needed a daypack for an weeklong kayaking/water caving trip.
-When rolled up tightly no water gets in the lid nor soaks thru the fabric. It is a nylon/polyester blend coated on both the inside and outside with a durable pu treatment. ONLY use powdered detergents and/or Nikwax. Anything else deletes the waterproofing.
-Price! At $50 on sale this 9oz bag is a bargain. The closest competitor, the $160 25oz SeaToSummit 24L Carve, carries less but weighs & cost almost 3x more.
-When not underwater the Dry Peak makes a great daypack.
The hypalon loops are useful for holding items on the outside of the bag with a bungee cord .
-The roll top anchor straps that run up the sides CAN also serve as a compression strap OR waist belt
-Can be closed to seal in air for use as a floatation device. Sounds funny but it actually works.
-Fabric is very thin and light so it is not a pack for carrying anything sharp and heavy. It also looks like a potato when stuffed and wear comfort and swag is completely lost. With a large stiff lightweight padded Fed Ex envelope inserted inside along the back wall the pack now keeps shape and I have a compartment for an ipad.
-No hydration pocket or internal pockets.
-Shoulder straps and back wall are not padded.
-There is a large zippered outer pocket that if not zipped all the way water WILL get into that compartment. The waterproof zip is stiff and stops before closing so you have to remember to tug it an extra bit to get it to close.
-There is a front tunnel pocket for an ice axe or ski poles. I haven't figured out what to do with it in regards to water and day hiking activities. I would have wanted a mesh pocket instead.
BOTTOM LINE: If you leave the kitchen sink home and want the most out of one daypack for all your 3 season endeavors whether on water or land I highly recommend this pack.
I'm looking for a packable day pack for traveling. When empty, how small will this daypack compress to? Can you roll it up?
Its tough to put a measurement on how small it will compress but, you would be able to easily fit it in the bottom of a bigger pack. I would keep this in my bigger 45 L pack along with my other gear, then when the gear ends up on my harness, take this pack and stow water and an extra layer in it.
This is a good pack for that, as it has very little structural support. I have one of these myself and it can be rolled/stuffed down to the size of a raincoat if you need to. Easy to tuck away in a suitcase or bigger backpack.
The Marmot Kompressor is a great day pack that compresses very, very, very (very, very) small. It also has a variety of capacities offered. Check them out in the links below.
Why does the description say padded shoulder...
Why does the description say padded shoulder straps but the reviewer below states there is no padding on the shoulder straps?
The description from Outdoor Research's website does indicate "padded" shoulder straps, but the straps look pretty thin to me in the photos... marginally padded, maybe. ;) Hope this information helps.
Lara is correct. This pack does not have thick padding but it is padded. If anything I would say that the padding is there to provide some support or structure to the straps rather than making them much more comfortable.
Can a folded Z-Rest closed cell foam pad...
Can a folded Z-Rest closed cell foam pad fit inside this pack (20" x 10" x 3")? I know the listed dimension is 19" but the pad is slightly compressible and there may be a fudge factor.
