SE Asia Tested
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used this as my primary pack while traveling through SE Asia for 6 months and it served me really well for that time. I had it strapped to the back of my motor bike as I rode through the torrential rains of Thailand and Laos and water never got inside. 50L was just the right size for my trip too! It held a ton of stuff when I had a lot, but rolled down to a smaller size when I didn't. It has a nice wide opening and is very durable, having held up well to the hard use I put it through (I did put a couple small holes in it as it scraped against the pavement when I dumped my motorbike, though I'd say that's beyond 'hard use'). It has good padding too, not as good as an equivalent backpacking pack, but really good for a drybag. ----------------------------------------------------------- It's primary downside, and this would apply to almost any drybag, is that if I needed something at the bottom, I had to dump the whole thing out to get to it. That same weakness however, proved to be one of it's strengths. Because it only has one opening, I was able to use a hefty padlock to lock it closed so I didn't have to worry as much about things disappearing from inside of it when I was on long bus or train rides. The only improvement I would suggest is to add a couple outside pockets (some of those mesh/elastic pockets would be great). Even if they wouldn't be waterproof, it would be really handy for some of those small things you want to get at without having to unroll and unclip the bag. ------------------------------------------------------------ Pro's: It is truly waterproof, Comfortable, Great storage capacity, Durable. ----------------------------------------------------------- Con's: No outside pockets, Hard to get at stuff in the bottom, Not as comfortable as a traditional pack. ------------------------------------------------------------ I'd suggest it if you've got to carry a lot of stuff and need a true drybag. It's a good bag.
