OR Dry Sack
July 07, 2013

Excellent quality, typical of OR. Lightweight. Holds quite a bit of gear. Fits quite nicely in a pack. Most importantly, it keeps your stuff DRY. I was caught in a 6 hour downpour on a recent hike. Everything was wet except for the gear stored in the Dry Sack. It was bone dry. Cons: none

Tougher than expected
February 27, 2011

I got some 5 & 10 liter bags to fit into the day hatch of my new sea kayak because my larger bags didn't fit through the opening. The bags seem much more durable than I expected, and they are much more flexible than vinyl bags. I'll see how they wear over time.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value

Great quality, like everything from OR

I love OR stuff, and this is no exception. Very high quality, it feels solid and strong with quality fasteners.

I have been canoeing for more than 20 years. I know the value of having dry clothes when you need them.I have used your Dry bags for most of that time. Before I found thr lightweight Dry Sacks I used heaver PVC bags, I canoe all year long ( when the rivers and lakes are not frozen) so the stiffness of the older bags became a problem. I just returned from a weeklong canoe trip where I tested the waterproofness of the new lightweight Dry Sack I bought for the trip. The dry and warm clothes that came out of the bag were greatly appreciated! Thank you for such quality equipment.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Gave it has a gift
January 03, 2011

I bought this dry sac as a gift after reading reviews trying to find the best quality dry sac for a good price. This will be used for canoe trips, hiking and camping as it's the right size to fit a coat and a few other essential items that need to be kept dry

Pros: Great design, Great value

October 08, 2009

What a Great find!!! I bought 4 of these 2 for me and one for my son and son-in-law. I also have the O/R Compression sack. I would never go camping again without them.
