This waterproof pack weighs just over 17 ounces and it was made for the mountains.
Weighing in just a touch over 17 ounces, the waterproof Outdoor Research DryComp Ridge Sack protects your technical gear from the wettest weather without adding undue weight to your back. Roll the top of this backpack closed, toss your ice axes on the back, throw the shoulder straps over your shoulders, and start your trek to the summit. Strong shell material and welded seams ensure that this sack will stand up to anything you'll encounter on your peak-bagging mission or alpine climbing route.
- Waterproof construction utilizes welded seams to ensure that leaks won't form where materials come together
- Durable nylon shell material is reinforced on the bottom and around the pocket area to ensure long-lasting performance
- Roll-top closure is fully waterproof and uses a double-buckle design that's secure and ready to take a thrashing in the mountains
- Mesh shoulder straps are made with breathable synthetic material for comfort
- Compression straps help eliminate extra space when you don't have enough gear to fully fill your pack
- External bungee cord gives you limited storage for an extra storm layer, hat, or other piece of clothing or gear
- Ice axe loops use a dual-adjustment system that keeps your gear from swaying or bouncing around

Great for canyoneering or very wet times
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I mostly use my Ridgesack for canyoneering. HIkes like Zion's Narrows in a day are perfect for this pack. Super gnarly canyons with lots of squeeze chimneys and slots will chew it up, but then of course those will chew up anything. Throw the Ridgesack inside an old beater pack and you're good to go. There's no internal frame so how to pack the back will determine how well it carries.
