Good and useful, but overpriced
This thing does what it says, and does it well, but it seems ridiculously overpriced for what is basically a stuff sack with handles instead of a drawcord. An ultra-sil stuff sack of comparable size is just over 10 dollars, and this thing is 30 bucks. This thing probably even uses less material than the stuff sack. Its invaluable for smothering fires with dirt, snow, and/or water. Unless you absolutely need a bucket to carry water, I'd just use some other bag if you need to transport snow or dirt for fire smothering. I often use my eVent compression dry sack for my sleeping bag to transport dirt and snow to bury fires with and they work fine (Although i can understand if people don't want to fill their sleeping bag storage container with dirt!). The included storage container thing or "stuff sack" is pretty pointless. I don't see why you wouldn't just stuff the bucket somewhere into your pack, it would probably not use up any more space than it would by putting it in the included stuff sack (which weighs more than the bucket itself). I ended up returning it because for what it is I just couldn't justify spending 30 bucks.
