What are the dimensions of the small bag? (And is there a reason that Backcountry.com didn't automatically include all of the dimensions in the product description?) And does anyone know just how waterproof/water-resistent these bags are? Anyone have a comparison to the North Face Base Camp Duffel? Thanks.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have several of these bags. My sense is that they are somewhat larger than you might think from the descriptions. The shape makes then imminently stuffable (even over-stuffable) I've had the medium bag (big enough for a month of clothing) and the small bag (which I use for a large volume of underwater camera equipment) for several years, and I just bought the extra-small bag (which is not tiny, despite the name, and probably good as a weekend bag, or for specialized gear). The small bag, fully stuffed, fits int he overhead rack of a plane end in, so it makes a great carry-on bag. These bags are all built very well, and are tough. Great travel bags. Reasonably comfortable with the backpack straps, but must be packed carefully to provide padding and comfort. My only complaint is I wish NF would make them truly waterproof, not just water resistant (which they are) -- they should keep exactly the same design, but add waterproof zippers (while keeping the flaps) and factory-seal the seams. These two little changes would make a great bag perfect.
