The Block Rock Solid Compressor by Granite Gear puts the biggest smile on my face. You may say, "What's in a name?", air means it’s ultralight, made with 30D hybrid sil-nylon CORDURA. Vent means it purges air through the eVent bottom. Dry means it’s factory seam sealed with a roll-top closure, the rolling stay is pre-curved so that it pops open, making it easier to load than a flat stay. Bloc means it nests inside your pack well. Solid means it’s durable, and also that you can compress your gear down to a nearly rocksolid state. But the name doesn’t quite say it all, we’ve lightened it up by replacing the compression webbing with paracord. Granite Gear calls it LineLoc Technology, another first that the Block Rock Solid Compressor features. The Bloc shape that Granite Gear has introduced is an innovation to help you pack more efficiently inside your pack. Compared to a round shape, the Bloc Rock Solid Comprssor fits better into the corners of your pack, they stack nicely, and eliminate all the “dead air” that can happen when you try to pack with round stuffsacks. Less dead air means better load stability, quicker pack loading, and the possibility of carrying the same amount of gear in a smaller pack, saving you weight. Granite Gear thinks about this.

great product, but completely wrong descriptionThe description written for this is actually the description for the "granite gear eVent Sil Compression Dry sack." this one is not made of eVent, it does not replace the compression webbing with para cord, and it does not have a roll top closure. it is actually the granite gear "block solid compression sack," which is an awesome product that is very well made, but it it not what i wanted. so the bottom line is don't be fooled by the description of this product (hopefully they fix it before you read this and get confused) and go to granite gears website and match there product description to the product name given on moosejaw

It's pretty goodI have used one of these for my North Face sleeping bag for the past 5 years or so, so I'm not saying it sucks. I have a medium compression sack and it compresses down my sleeping bag like nobody's business. However, it's not super high quality. It's a little thin and the lid of mine broke. I tried to sew it back together but I'm not very good at sewing so I gave up. Luckily it's covered by the warranty and I'm getting a new one. It's fairly legit.

It'sI bought this compressor for a backpacking trip. It's pretty durable!,,Just note that that the colour may be a little off, I ordered the tigerlily 11L block and it's a darker orangish-red than yellow.
