Rated5out of5byFlycaster DavefromGood quality sack and cord lockReviews about bad cord locks concerned me so I checked carefully...lock on the 15 L sack receives today is great: works easily, holds tight, and appears sturdy. Stitching looks very good too. I usually get the silnylon sacks and ordered this one by mistake, but for a 1 oz premium this sack is sturdier and more versatile so I'm going to keep it.

Rated2out of5byjkrubiconfromCord locks don't work on any of the 6I bought 6 of the 60L today at the local REI to put sleeping bags in since I don't backpack any more and I only had very small, tight fitting stuff sacks. The sacks are just what I wanted but not one of the 6 had cord cinch locks that worked. Making it worse, the person who installed them when they were made had to know that. Several people said the same in their review. Not acceptable for the REI that I've looked to and trusted for many years for good products. I'll see if they'll just give me 6 mini cord locks at the store, if not I'll buy them.

Rated3out of5byBob the Fitness GuyfromGreat sack, bad cinch lockI purchased two of the 10 liter Stuff Sacks for an upcoming backpacking trip. Checked out the sacks when I got home and found that the cinch lock on both sacks slides freely on the drawcord. Will have to run by the Fabric/Craft store to buy some new cinch locks - don't want to be without the sacks on the trip.

Rated1out of5bydarkstar01970fromCinch lock is weakI use these sacks to hold gear in my pack. Just bought several of these, and the cinch locks on every one fail to stay closed. The cinch lock just slides right up the drawstring as though there were no lock whatsoever. A two cent cinch lock renders an 11 dollar sack of questionable use. I'm planning on returning, and trying a different brand.

Rated4out of5byBig CrankfromDoes the jobThis is perfect for storing mid-weight cool weather sleeping bags. I opted for the larger size as I need them for storage, not backpacking so I don't want compression. They are a heavier-weight fabric than I expected (a good thing) and look like they will hold up over time.

Rated4out of5byMTNDivisionfromBest for the price!Just got a few more 10L and 15L REI stuff sacks. They have been proven in the backwoods for many years. These things are great for backpacking. I use them to organize the inside of my pack for perfect weight distribution and quick access. They also make great laundry bags as they don't leak or retain scents easily.
