    Like a true slacker.

    Throw your hiking or paddling gear into Granite Gear's Slacker Packer Compression Drysack from the other side of the room, and if it makes it, you can take it with. Hopefully you don't air ball your lunch. Unlike you, Granite Gear's Slacker Packer isn't a slacker. It works hard to keep your gear safe and dry, with a fully taped eVent membrane for reliable waterproofing in rivers and rugged Cordura fabrics that'll stay strong for years. The roll-top closure enhances waterproofing, and tubular compression straps ensure a secure carry with the lightly padded shoulder straps.

    Not recommended as a drysack.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had this pack for 2 months now, using it through the winter snow and rain. There are two critical issues with the pack which compromise its title as a drypack.



    First, the 30D nylon blue outward facing panel is quite delicate, I put a tear in this panel on my first day out with it. It was a small tear so the overall pack integrity was not compromised, but I couldn't count on it to be a drysack.



    Secondly, the 100D grey panel that sits against your back is actually not waterproof at all. I took my slacker packer out for a snow shoe session. When I checked my pack, it was soaked through from melted snow that had fallen onto my pack. I thought it was condensation at first, but I took it home and ran tap water over the 100D backpanel and the water leaked through.



    As a daypack, its superlight, and very packable; but I think its false advertising to call it a drysack. This pack does not keep its contents dry.
