I don't like gear that fails catastrophicallyI'm generally a fan of Granite Gear; I use their packs exclusively and have had good experiences with the regular non-eVent version of these bags. The eVent style, however, has failed me twice in quick succession; using an 8L bag to hold my Marmot Plasma 30, the bottom eVent panel first frayed then blew out; the replacement Granite Gear sent did the same thing. I like the idea of a breathable bag, but by simply kneeling on a drybag to squeeze the air out, you can accomplish the same result with less chance of structural failure. I'd stick with the regular CTF3 drysacks for safety.

Still feels too good to be true .. so far, solid ...The transparent fabric is wonderful for seeing where stuff is inside. They are light - unbelievable fabric. I haven't gotten really drenched in rain while packs in one of these yet so they haven't met the acid test. On the good side, they've survived several weekend trips without a tear/rip/puncture. Still not trusting them yet - almost too good to be true. Will keep using them and hoping for a frog-drowning rain weekend so I can write a better review.

Need another oneLove that this bag has the E-vent fabric at the bottom for compression. Have a similar one with out it and this one is so much better. It weighs nothing and has a patch kit as an added bonus. Will definitely be ordering another one.

Lighter than a plastic bag & tough as nailsExpensive but can't be beat for containing gear & keeping it dry inside your pack. I use the 18L size for my sleeping bag & the 10L for all my unworn clothes.
