This is the Granite Gear Drysack, a durable, waterproof, lightweight option for compressing sleeping bags, layers of clothes and other gear to maximize space inside your pack. The Drysack is constructed of 70D Nylon ripstop. This is a very abrasion resistant fabric, it’s very durable and you can see the lining on the inside and waterproof construction. It isn’t what I would call ultra lightweight but it is very lightweight and worth it for the waterproof protection. There is a roll-top closure that allows you to press down on the pieces in there and it’s not a true compression piece but rolling it down you can get things to small size. The buckle offers a nice secure lock and everything inside it has full waterproof protection. You can see the space saving shape that Granite Gear utilizes on a lot of their storage pieces. This is intended to mirror the interior of a backpack and again, takes much better advantage of the interior space of your pack as compared to a rounded, more traditional storage sack that tends to barrel a bit and leave you with some wasted space inside the pack. This is the packaging that each Drysack comes in and speaks to Granite Gear’s commitment of not letting anything go to waste. This can be used to store an empty Drysack but you can also use it to carry any small items out on the trail. It has a mesh face with full zippered access and it also has some lash points so you can connect it to the side of a Granite Gear backpack for use as really minimalist hip belt pocket. This Drysack that we are looking at is the 18 liter version, obviously in a red color, but they are available in your choice of colors and a variety of smaller and larger sizes.
