    Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack is rated 4.6122 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my hike and likely my life. Let me say, without this compression sac my latest hike would have been ruined. I bought these sacs, a size small first, mainly to keep my sleeping bag dry, however, the small was just not big enough for my bag. But, rather than exchange it I decided to just buy a medium for the sleeping bag, which worked fine. The small one I kept and used for "camp clothes" and extra insulating layers. The compressibility on these is great; my clothes and my sleeping bag were compressed so small, that they easily fit inside my pack with plenty of extra room for other items, actually a feature I would expect from any old compression sac. Now, where these shined was in the weatherproofing. I got these for a 3-day hike of the entire Black Mountain range in North Carolina where I was almost guaranteed to get wet at least one day. Well, wet we got on day 1, right out the car. The rain began as a drizzle , but by the time we got to the top of the ridge, it was pouring and with the 40 mph winds, it was raining sideways and very hard. It was probably the worst weather I have ever hiked in. We endured these conditions all day, everything on our bodies eventually got wet, packs got wet, it was quite miserable. But, when we reached our camp for the first night and set up tents in the rain, it was time to get out of wet clothes. I opened the dry sac with my extra layers and they were as dry as could be. My sleeping bag was also dry as a bone, even after the punishing weather we suffered through. Since the temperature was dropping dramatically (well below freezing), having these dry clothes and dry sleeping bag saved my life from what could have turned into a hypothermic situation, or at the very least, a crummy night of not sleeping. After putting these sacs though that test, I will say these are awesome. I can't comment on how long they will last, but they saved me on this hike. The only negative thing I can say about these sacs is that the straps for the cover can be confusing and a challenge to "get right" with frozen fingers. But, given the good qualities, I can accept this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works, Tested by Submerging in pool I gave it a test by stuffing with some colthes and roll of paper towels threw it in the swimming pool and even held it submerged for a while everything inside remained 100% perfectly dry. Canoe, Kayak treks and backpacking in wet country. Has enough room with my sleeping bag to include some sleeping gear Long Johns and socks. So if all else happens to gets soaked, i'm still safe through the night.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Expectations were Exceeded I am sure you already read sterling reviews by other fans of the bag so let me tell you what you may not know and what really surprized me. After carrying my dirty smelly trail clothes for two weeks, I was still able to use my bag as a pillow and not gag on retched odors. That was amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! WENT ON A SIX DAY KAYAKING TRIP. WAS ABLE TO FIT MY SLEEPING BAG AND CLOTHES WITH ROOM FOR MORE! THE BAG WAS EXPOSED TO CONSTANT WATER AND SUN EXPOSURE AND KEPT EVERYTHING DRY! WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BAG TO ANYONE WANTING DRY, WARM CLOTHES AND SLEEPING BAG AFTER A LONG DAY ON THE RAPIDS.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Event Compression Dry Sack - Winner Best way to pack sleeping bag. Extra large down bag will compress to the size of a volley ball. Down fails if it gets wet, so the water proof sack means a warm nights sleep. I have used in the snow, rain, canoe trips and never had water get in. I've had mine 2 years, so happy I just bought one for my son. Doubles as a food bag to hang food in bear country. Highly recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money I have three of these bags. My wife and I use this for down sleeping bags and my down underquilt (hammock camping) when we go out. The bag works very well, and its is made out of durable material. I have never had any problems with water seepage My only drawback for the bag is the buckles on the compression straps. The straps are plenty strong, but the buckles where they are attached to the bag are lacking. I had a buckle split on me after a few trips, but this was only one of four buckles per bag out of three bags. Also, the buckle didn't change the waterproofness, just the compression. I finished my trip, went to REI and the exchanged it with no problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best compression/ dry bag I've ever used Use these kayaking, so hold space is a premium. I use for sleeping bag and for clothes. I thought that I would get them primarily for compression and thought the dry bag was a nice plus. But it turns out that I've had to strap the one on the deck during some pretty heavy seas and they kept my gear dry. And they compress the sleeping bag into almost nothing, so they are a huge space saver. So use it as a compression sack or dry bag. Either way, the best of either I've ever used. The fact that it does both just makes it a fantastic value.
