I love these! I am an avid ultra-light backpacker/hiker and I use these to organize my backpack. They are made of seemingly very durable ripstop nylon and the seams are solid. I bought two of the #2's (5x11.25). and o

In one #2 sack I have:

- 1x pair of lightweight convertible pants
- 2x pair of merino wool socks
- 2x pairs of wicking underwear
- 2 wicking tshirts

They all fit nicely without bulging and when the sack is tied, you can squeeze all the air out and because it's SEMI-airtight, it stays small.

In addition, I use the nice pouch the sack comes with to store a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and a titanium spork.

This is truly and excellent product for the price. The material and the make of the sack seems unbreakable, which is very important if like in my case you are moving your gear frequently. The best is that you can choose the size according to your needs since it comes in ten different sizes. Be sure to check in the product features the volume and dimensions in order to choose exactly what you need if you don't want to pay more than you really need.

In my case I bough #8 and I was not disappointed at all.

Good product quality, but to be really water proof it would need to have an inner flap to cover the whole where the drawstring is. Besides that, it works fine and is fair price.

I wanted to stuff my sleeping bag into a longer, slimmer sack. Most stuff sacks have about the same aspect ratio; this is one of the few exceptions. The circumference of the #10 sack is 22.5" so diameter is 7.16". With my sleeping bag inside and the drawstring cinched up tight, the package is about 22" long. My down bag (men's long) COULD be stuffed into a somewhat smaller space, but it wouldn't weigh any less and it might damage the loft to be so drastically compressed. I like that the packed length is now comparable to that of my tent and mattress.

The pictured item is a dark green. The item I received was bright red. I don't carry bright colored gear into the back country. I believe the tough sack would have been what I was looking for otherwise, but no choice of colors was offered, only the above picture which was what I assumed I was getting. I have since then read other similar negative reviews on products from Granite Gear, no choice of color for the product.

I originally bought this to hold my clothes during backpacking, however, I ended up using for my Eureka Solo Backcountry 1 Tent which fit perfectly if you store the poles somewhere else on your bag. I kept my poles on the sides outside of the bag to preserve space. #3 came in red.

The Granite Gear tough sacks are a great value. They are very durable and are a lot more affordable compared to other stuff sacks out there. I decided to purchase the #2 (5" x 11.25") tough sack for my thermarest neoair that packs to (4.5" x 11"). I originally purchased the neoair stuff sack but ended up returning it and decided to purchase a granite gear (much more affordable). The neoair was already expensive (well worth it though) and having to pony up another $15 was already breaking the bank. Plus, it was hard to stuff the neoair especially with the valve popping out. With the granite gear stuff sack I am able to stuff it fast and easy and pull it out with little to no effort. It cinches pretty tight where it might be able to be somewhat water proof. Since I loved these new tough sacks I purchased a few to replace my tent bag and use them to stuff my clothes as well. I haven't had any problems as of yet with ripping, threads coming off or the cord breaking. They are called tough sacks for a reason. I definitely recommend these for their affordable price and toughness in the field.

This is a wonderful product. I have one in the 3Liter size (#2) , and I find it very useful. When I'm traveling, I "stuff" socks, underwear, and other things that can be wrinkled in to one of these bags. It helps to organize my bag, and it saves space via compression. On that note, I stuff mine full hard, very hard. The bag is like a log of wood once I've packed it full, and it doesn't seem to be showing any signs of wear after 1 year of solid use. That's a huge plus (and what you'd expect from what the bag promises). As a trip progresses, I like to use the bag as a dirty laundry bag (because if it's going in the laundry, I don't care if it's wrinkled or not). This allows me to segregate my clothing, and, at the end of the trip repack my bag with clean and dirty clothing, and make sure the clean clothing stays clean.

Off the top of my head, what could I fit in the 3 liter:
3 pairs of dress socks
3 pairs boxer briefs
1 pair of athletic shorts
1 long sleeve tech tee
2 men's swimsuits (not board shorts, smaller suits)
1 pair of goggles

(I think that's everything. I can't remember perfectly, and it may very well be that I fit one or two more pieces of clothing in there).

Some additional thoughts:
The bag doesn't hold any smell in my experience. Like I said, I pack it full of dirty clothing, and I've never felt like it held a dirty smell.

It's pretty water resistant (I'm not sure why some reviewers are deducting stars because the bag isn't waterproof -- I don't see where it makes that claim in the description). I've used the bag to hold a wet towel, swimsuit, and/or super sweaty clothing, and the moisture stays in the bag just fine. When I use the bag in this manner, I do give it a quick rinse (sweat, yuck!). When rinsing the bag, I typically fill it with water, swirl the water around, then turn the bag inside out to dry. You'll notice I said "fill it with water," and that's because the bag is in fact so water resistant that it fills and holds water pretty well. You'll get some water start dripping through the seam at the bottom, but not bad. In a pinch, it could work as a bladder to carry water from a water source to a camp fire. Maybe some of you gear junkies might even try hitting it with some water-proofing spray; in that case, the bag may not leak at all, but you are getting beyond its intended use.

Having said all that, I love mine, and I'm going to get another. My only really minor complaint is that I'd like to see a handle sewn to the side. Like a simple piece of webbing tacked at the ends and running the length of the bag. It would make it easier to strap to my pack. And, you can strap it to your pack without worries, because the material is strong enough to take a beating.

Great bag. Worth the money. Enjoy it. If you have any questions, leave a comment!
