Great Stuff Sack for Checked Backpack
June 27, 2010

The 45L Outdoor Research Stuff Sack works great when you choose to check your 30L or smaller backpack for airline travel. Daisy Chain allows you to attach personal luggage tag and airline checked baggage tag. The stuff sack prevents damage to your backpack straps. When not in use it packs extremely compact. Great all around stuff sack.

Exactly what I needed
June 16, 2010

I got the 10L for my 4 day 3 night trip in Tuolumne Meadows. It worked great. I was able to pack all my clothes (2 changes and sleep wear extra socks and a fleece) and pull it tight. No sign of wear and it kept my pack organized.

As you would expect ...
October 22, 2012

very high quality from OR ... if this is what you want. Item is very well made and made of high quality materials, but, unfortunately for me, I returned mine not for the quality or functionality, but for the fact that it was too heavy for my purposes as I am a light traveler. I use the lightwieght stuff sacks from OR and am very pleased with its quality.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: weight

Good Stuff Sack
July 30, 2012

Very solid dry bag. Overbuilt almost. Very happy with this bag, the closing mechanism works well and the gear attachment points on the outside are useful. Would buy again! May be a little overkill if your looking for a simple stuff sack to place within a bag. But if your looking for a durable stand alone stuff sack, a very good purchase!

Great sacks
May 13, 2013

I took this sack in my trip to Point Reyes, I usually take my extra shoes outside and in this trip I storage inside of the bag, great color and waterproof. Great to keep me organized. I love it.

Perfect for family gear
August 19, 2009

I bought three bags for the family to haul towels, lotions, snacks and other assorted gear to the beach. Perfect. Used another smaller bag for my camera, to protect it from the sand. Bags cinch up tight and the inside flap ads extra protection. The real test: After we returned from vacation, everyone in the family kept the bags I had passed out.

Great Bag
May 23, 2009

I really like the OR bags, they are my go-to stuff sack when backpacking. Bomber stuff sack that kept out moisture in very wet conditions. Just used in on a 30 day trip and it was awesome!

Tent Stuff sack Replacement
April 11, 2011

While I love the Kelty Gunnison 3.1, it's stuff sack leaves much to be desired. Too large. Too weak. This sack works perfectly. A tight fit for the tent and fly (I pack the ground cloth and poles separately). Great quality and looks to be very durable, which is important as I pack the tent externally. And I even like the color!

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value

Great Bag and Great Value
January 20, 2011

Best bag you can get for the price, no doubt about it. kept my things dry, and the quality of construction held up to some abuse too. Love the daisy-chain; great for in or out of your pack. I'm going to get more of these in almost every size.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

Waterproof organization
October 21, 2009

I was so impressed with one of these sacks during a recent backpacking trip that I purchased three more to replace my older stuff sacks. They seal up securely and really do a great job at holding rain out of your gear. The trade off of having a slightly heavier stuff sack is worth the water resistance for me.

March 18, 2010

It is what I was looking for and it arrived being what I wanted and ordered. Great turn around time and great product. Thanks

Works as advertised

45L Durable stuff sack, used as a cache bag and worked well. This bag is heavier duty than what I typically need stuff sacks for and not intended for shaving weight.

Amazing product and company
June 17, 2011

These are the only stuff sacks I have purchased since I started to backpack again about 20 years ago. Recently, I noticed that some of my older sacks were having minor "stickyness" issues with the drawcords. I contacted OR and had beautiful replacement products shipped to me in under 2 weeks. The new ones are bound to become new favorites with me. OR's customer service is phenomenal and they have won me for a lifetime customer!!!

More waterproof than others
December 28, 2010

I have enjoyed this product backpacking because it is more waterproof than other bags of its type. I cool food in the creek in these bags by submerging them halfway, and only a little water gets in.

Keeping Gear Dry on Motorcycle
May 23, 2011

I wanted waterproof stuff sacks but did not need dry bags. Comparing the new stuff sacks I just received to other stuff sacks I own and looked at these are the best. I would compare the construction to high quality clothing Sturdy seams Quality Construction Daisy Chain Loops make for easy securing to motorcycle I can not comment on waterproof quality so I am relying on other comments

O.R. Durable Stuff Sack - A Good Buy
June 28, 2012

I chose the 20 L chili (red) colored model. Its dimensions are 9" diameter X 19.75" length. This particular size fits well under my old Kelty external frame pack WITHOUT pushing up into the bottom main compartment #and thereby decreasing the backpack's carrying volume#. The interior of the sack is well coated as are the seams. A REALLY good thing about this sack is the LARGE storm/dust flap. It is over nine inches, that is, it is actually larger than the diameter of the bag itself. This really comes in handy when your sleeping bag is a tight fit #which mine is# and the drawstring edges do not come very close together. The storm/dust flap does NOT fall out of the stuff sack this way. The daisy chain is a nice touch as well. The drawstring toggle set up is a little unusual but not a deal breaker. Definitely worth the price!

Pros: Build quality, Great value

Perfect for organiztion
December 20, 2009

This product serves two functions, you can keep you gear organized as well as dry, without adding too much weight to your pack.

Great stuff sack - BETTER than the original!
January 13, 2010

We bought this stuff sack to replace the original one which tore around the hem. This one is slightly larger (it would be too big for a backpacking bag) but it sure makes it easier to get the sleeping bag tucked away. And super quality too. Liked it so much we bought another one for the second bag and threw the original away.

very durable
June 14, 2009

The durable stuff sacks are great to keep wet clothes separate from the rest of your gear. Stuff them to the MAX!


this is what I was looking for
April 13, 2009

I've purchace many stuff sacks before But this one past the test. Put lots of stuff and pack for a long camping trip and every thing came out great. Oh I dropped it in the river and still worked. thx ray
