The eVent Compression Drysack earned a Backpacker Editors’ Choice Award in 2007, and there is no question that it’s still a winner today.
Made from a sturdy 70D Nylon waterproof fabric in the body and lid, with an eVent waterproof but air-permeable base that allows air to be pushed out of the sack. No need for a purge valve, making these lighter and simpler. The four compression straps, use hypalon roll-top non-wicking closure. These dry sacks are the epitome of durability, versatility, and compression.
The eVent Compression Dry Sacs are rated to 10,000mm hydrostatic head – more than sufficient water protection for paddle use (avoid full submersion.) There is no need to worry about your contents getting wet, so when you get to camp, you can get into a cozy jacket, blanket, or sleeping bag.
These compression bags are ideal for backpacking, bike packing, camping, and sea kayaking, but avoid pointed gravel and other sharp objects. Super tough, super pliable, high thread-count 70 Denier fabrics and it’s white visible color make it easy to find in your bag.
