Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This drybag is big, seems well made and will seal as well as any other drybags of similar style. One thing to note is that has a beefy shoulder harness AND waist belt for use in carrying the bag "backpack" style. Be sure to take a close look at the pictures. This seems a little overkill to me. I'm only carrying it from the raft a few hundred feet to where I'll pitch my tent. Usually, I'll only put one arm in the shoulder harness to do this. This harness looks like it's built for someone to carry the bag a significant distance. Also, it is somewhat difficult & time consuming to remove and re-attach. Overall, a good bag for the price Backcountry is currently selling if for.

This bag does not have a valve. It works sort of like a regular stuff sack. If you fold down the roll top portion of the sack, you'll find a draw cord that you can cinch. The compression straps are attached to this portion of the bag. So you cinch the cord tightly, then use the compression straps to compress the bag. Excess air is expelled through the top where the draw cord is. Once compressed, you then use the roll top portion of the bag which is welded to the main bag to make it water tight. It's kind of a weird method but works.
