    This waterproof pack weighs just over 17 ounces and it was made for the mountains.

    Weighing in just a touch over 17 ounces, the waterproof Outdoor Research DryComp Ridge Sack protects your technical gear from the wettest weather without adding undue weight to your back. Roll the top of this backpack closed, toss your ice axes on the back, throw the shoulder straps over your shoulders, and start your trek to the summit. Strong shell material and welded seams ensure that this sack will stand up to anything you'll encounter on your peak-bagging mission or alpine climbing route.

    • Waterproof construction utilizes welded seams to ensure that leaks won't form where materials come together
    • Durable nylon shell material is reinforced on the bottom and around the pocket area to ensure long-lasting performance
    • Roll-top closure is fully waterproof and uses a double-buckle design that's secure and ready to take a thrashing in the mountains
    • Mesh shoulder straps are made with breathable synthetic material for comfort
    • Compression straps help eliminate extra space when you don't have enough gear to fully fill your pack
    • External bungee cord gives you limited storage for an extra storm layer, hat, or other piece of clothing or gear
    • Ice axe loops use a dual-adjustment system that keeps your gear from swaying or bouncing around
    • Item #ODR1067

    Tough enough but not for everything

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It only took me a couple canyoneering trips to shred this bag a bit, but I was in super tight slots and just about anything would shred in there. So I improvised, bought grommet kits and put those on the bag, so that water drains out the bottom, and I just carry my things in small dry bag inside. Works great! This pack doesn't have built-in back support, but I like the the many ways to attach gear, bladders, etc. to the outside of it. Really convenient for when moving through tight spots or packing lots of gear around it, not having a bulky internal frame, but not quite enough support for my lower back on long approaches with lots of rope strapped to it. Still, for quicker routes, it's my go-to bag.

    complicated relationship....

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have had mixed feelings about this bag. I love the fact that it is essentially 100% waterproof, light, perfect size for days and light over nights and sharp looking. So far I snagged a tree branch and ripped the side out of it, melted the mesh on it my letting sit near a heating vent and have lost the buckles for the chest strap.

    Now to be fair the tree snag was my fault and it was a good sized branch but it eliminated the air tight qualities. OR fully replaced the bag and sent me a brand new one so two thumbs up on their part. The heater vent was kind of random, did not realize it got that hot there so that was fault two on my part but the only real complaint is the buckles on the strap do not stay on for anything and the bag being air tight of course means a traps bad odors! All in all I would recommend you try this bag, its just not getting along with me the best... :(

    Versatile waterproof backpack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This pack is great for anything water related. I use it mostly for fly fishing and paddle boarding. Great amount of carry space, and it packs down super small.

    Versatile waterproof backpack

    Great for canyoneering or very wet times

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I mostly use my Ridgesack for canyoneering. HIkes like Zion's Narrows in a day are perfect for this pack. Super gnarly canyons with lots of squeeze chimneys and slots will chew it up, but then of course those will chew up anything. Throw the Ridgesack inside an old beater pack and you're good to go. There's no internal frame so how to pack the back will determine how well it carries.

    Unanswered Question

    Three questions: 1) Where are OR's products made? 2) Would anyone say this pack offers twice as much and therefore worth double the cost of the Dry Peak Bagger? 3) Is there a pack with all these great qualities AND with a more rigid frame? I'm picturing these bags to be as flimsy as a simple drawstring backpack?
