"This bag has been beat up & keeps going!"
I used it during my Peace Corps service in Africa. It has been slammed, overstuffed, left in the sun & it still functions beautifully. Its capacity is perfect: room for a 3-season down sleeping bag/bivvy/clothes for 2 weeks of travel. It hasn't buckled under the weight of maize & things stays dry inside. The only drawbacks are: it's basically a big tube, so things tend to swim around inside. Also, I doesn't have any zippers, which is good because there are less moving parts, but it can be a security issue for air travel. My solution: plastic wrap your bag at airports. I've flown through Tambo in Jo'burg with this bag as my luggage w it plastic wrapped & I've never had an issue. It rules!
I beat the crap out of my gear and this bag has withstood lots of abuse. WATERPROOF:Caving. Threw it down muddy caverns, dragged across rocks, submerged in cavern lakes. No rips or tears in fabric & gear stayed dry. TOUGH:Bushwacked in off-trail wilderness scrapping thorns, branches & rock faces. No rips or tears in fabric at all. VERSATILE:Trail running. Mesh back panel kept back dry. Waist & sternum straps kept bag secure. 1-nighter summer camping. Packed full but still enough room for gear needed. Canoeing & WW Rafting.Pack is rugged & tough; able to be used for multiple outdoor adventures! If I ever lose this bag, I'll cry, then buy another one ASAP.
"it's like making out with your best friend you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner"
I've done drybags before, everybody has right? Things stay, well, dry. For bike commuting and weekend trip this bag is SWEET. I added few external pockets and the SL internal organizer and now it's near perfect. Hangups: Waist belt, it's like a muffin-top; fix it or make it easier to hide. Ive had better shoulder straps, we all have, I wish SL would stiffen them a touch. I'm not totally sure what to think about the framesheet. It might be perfect, it's light weight and flexible but I'm sort of hungup on hard core backpack frames. It's me Urban Backpack not you. Overall, she's totally worth it ($) best of all you already know her.
I got the large one in orange, it is massive when fully loaded but reasonably compact when rolled all the way down. I can fit 1 + 1/2 weeks worth of food shopping in this bag or several A3 folios.I love this bag, it is so comfortable, looks indestructible and very visible to cars. Awesome!
