Ultra-Sil Compression Dry Sack
ULTRALIGHT COMPRESSION FOR WHEN THINGS SHOULD BE DRY
The Ultra-Sil™ Compression Dry Sack is a super lightweight dry sack designed to compress bulky clothing or other squishable gear that lives inside your pack. Made from Ultra-Sil™ 30D CORDURA® Nylon fabric with an eVent® fabric base, the air can be rolled out but can't get back in. It's an ideal option for use inside a backpack during longer lightweight hikes, adventure travels, cycle touring and any activity where you need to maximize pack space by compressing your bulky items to one-third of their volume. It employs waterproof seams, a hypalon roll-top, non-wicking closure and is super lightweight.
Keep it inside your pack and away from hard edges and corners.
Greater than 2000mm hydrostatic head – more than sufficient water protection for use inside a pack

A good choice for a tent storage bag?
Perhaps. Carrying the tent canopy in your pack (with the poles under the compression straps) is a great idea. However - the canopy may not compress that much.
Worth their weight and cost?
Once you have experienced modular packing with ultralight compression sack you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.
The body of the dry sack is more than adequately waterproof (2000 mm hydrostatic head) for the intended use (storage inside a backpack or duffle).
