I purchased three of OR's Durable Stuff Sacks for a recent climb up Mount Kilimanjaro: the 15-L in chili, the 20-L in marine, the 30-L in black. Rain can ruin a once-in-a-lifetime trip of this type during which replacement gear and supplies are unavailable. I used the 15-L to hold 20 days of snacks and a first aid kit. I used the 20-L to hold all of my clothing, including heavy cold weather gear. I used the 30-L to hold my Marmot, 6.5-foot, 0-degree, down sleeping bag. I put my Outdoor Research bags into my backpack. The different colors allowed me to quickly grab a specific bag. These bags feel durable, as advertised. It would be nice if OR offered more color options.

I hiked Alaska’s arctic tundra for more than two weeks over a blanket of snow. Temperatures were never above freezing. My two pairs of SmartWool Heavy Crew socks kept my feet warm and dry. My only regret was that I did not purchase four pairs. The cold, damp environment would prevented my boots from drying through the night. Thankfully, the wool fiber absorbed the moisture trapped in the boot to protect my feet.
