A completely new concept in compression dry bags - there is no valve. This innovation uses an air-permeable base made of eVent waterproof fabric, which allows air to be pushed out of the sack, but won’t allow water to get back in. Proper Use: Any roll-top dry sack must be closed properly to ensure water can’t get in. Begin by folding the Hypalon strip down first and be sure to have at least three rolls before closing the buckle. Avoid contact with sharp objects or subjecting the sack to high abrasion, as this could compromise the waterproof fabric. Like all manufacturers of roll-top, fabric dry sacks, Sea to Summit recommends that sensitive electronic devices be ‘double bagged’ (i.e. putting electronics inside one dry sack then placing this inside a second dry sack). For maximum protection, the use of a waterproof hard case should be considered.

I had only a mild struggle with this bag, something that is to be expected with a sleeping bag and stuff sack. I'm very happy with this purchase and would purchase again if something happens to this one. The quality and size are great and I love how it is constructed.
Tip: As you stuff your tightly rolled sleeping bag, be sure to shove an arm down to the bottom of the sack and then twist slightly to the side allowing air to reach all the way down. You'll then be able to pull the bottom & sides of the sack up far more easily. All that air comes right back out again once the bottom of your sleeping bag meets the bottom of the sack.
I also purchased the medium knowing I would use that for other items but not sure which would fit the sleeping bag. For me, there would be no way to fit my XXL bag into the medium. I am nowhere near strong enough to pull that one off.

Important Note: I have NOT compressed the sack in any meaningful way in the picture. Once I do, I expect to reduce the size by at least 1/3.
I purchased the medium and while I did get it in the stuff sack I was not able to fully fold over the water resistant tab. However once I started cinching the straps it dramatically reduced in size. Also the stuff sack is much more durable than the one that came with the sleeping bag.
I'm purchasing a large now for the sleeping bag, keeping the medium for my clothes.
Attached you can see my sleeping bag hung up next to the stuff sack and then it in the sack.
I'll be backpacking in South America for almost a year soon, and it's very convenient to be able to keep cold-weather things in one, organized, compressed, waterproof bag. I won't need a down jacket in the Amazon rainforest...I will put a silica pack in it before compressing it, to make sure any incidental moisture doesn't cause problems within the bag.
I just received my second Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack, this time a small. Having realized the extent of the compression of the Large, I couldn't help but imagine how much smaller I can make clothing in my bag. I probably could have gotten a cheaper compression sack where I'm not paying for waterproofing, but waterproof bags can come in handy no matter what situation you're in.
The bags seem very well built and after having used and compressed them several times, I'm not worried about putting force into the compression and stressing the seams/straps. I just put four beach towels in the small, compressed it to the size of a small watermelon, and dunked it in the pool for about 5 minutes. The towels were totally dry. However, when you open the bag, drops of water will obviously fall in.
Highly recommended for backpackers.
-Can compress to a very small size
-The stitching is strong and seems well constructed
-It keeps items inside water proof (so far I have only tested it while the sack was out in the rain)
-It is easy to remove any trapped air from the sack
-Durable, the material is thick and resilient to scratches from brush, twigs and falling on the ground
-Price, but most well made dry sacks will set you back a good amount for your money
-Heavier than the Ultra-Sil compression dry sack by Sea to Summit
-It can take some practice to put the straps on correctly in the dark
Overall: I would recommend this to keep some of your important backpacking equipment dry, specifically your sleeping bag and clothes. But if you either want to save some weight and/or don't want to shell out the amount of cash a good alternative is some trash bags if you don't need to compress your contents too much.

My opinion is they are way too much money. Knowing that I’d still buy another one.
