I've put it through the wringer

I was a bit skeptical on the straps and buckles but after kicking it through the mud sand and dirt. It still cinched perfectly and I put some torque into the cinch straps multiple times without so much as a creak from it. I used it at the end of the trip to keep my soaked drysuit and clothes separated from everything else and it did that perfectly. I do wish the would make the mouth just a bit wider. But with the 10litre bag I was able to fit a full drysuit, neoprene socks, a rain coat, a puffer coat, and neoprene gloves in it and still had some room to spare

Bag seems solid, not sure about straps

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

Bought this because it was an eVent compression bag at the right price. The venting works well and seems solid, but we'll see how the straps hold up. The straps are really narrow and the secure buckles are small. I'm concerned on durability of those, but we'll see.

Great dry sack

I've put it through the wringer

The 13L fits my Kelty 21 degree Cosmic down long sleeping bag perfectly. Remove as much air as possible before cinching, and compressing.

Best of All Worlds

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

Before this bag I've had to sacrifice at least one of 3 features when it came to a storage sack: lightweight, waterproof or compression. I haven't had any problems with knots in the strings, but I do wonder about their durability. Not the end of the world if they fail as replacing them with some lighter weight cordage like zing-it would save even more weight. Out of the box though it performs very well and the 18L is perfect for packing all my clothes for a week in the summer or a long weekend in the winter.

Good option combining LW & compression

I've used it several times

I got one of these to replace a heavier Outdoor Research compression dry sack-type stuff sack for my sleeping bag. The GGear dry sack model I got is much less than half the weight of the OR product for a savings of several ounces. The GGear bag is easy to use and, while I can't speak for its long-term durability compared to the a heavier dry sack like the OR product, it lasted very well on a recent 2 week trip and I expect to get many more trips out of it. I think this is a good option that combines serious compression capability and reasonably light weight. I have since ordered a larger size GGear comp dry sack for a larger sleeping bag. 4 stars as I only have 14 days in the field with it and can't speak to its long-term durability. updated 1 year later with weeks more of use: I have 3 of these (10,13 & 18 L) bags. They are good and solid still but some stitching gave way on the smaller "lid" piece of the 18L bag - which, while a hassle, does not effect the integrity of the bag itself.

Just About Great

I've put it through the wringer

Not a bad sack. The cinch strings are a bit annoying with the knots and tangles and such. Stayed dry while going thru hell until a mouse chewed through it.


I need a compression sack for a kelty cosmic 20. What size should I get?
