Quality Dry Bags And Compression Sacks?

What dry bag brand do you guys buy? None of that hardcore heavy PVC stuff, just simple and lightweight enough to be waterproof. And what compression sacks do you guys use to compress clothing and other stuff?

        Y'all can stop responding to that dude, we all know that actually attractive people can wear burlap sacks and still get laid. Actually, looking like a hobo is a whole genre of fashion these days (for attractive people).

        Now I'm not saying that women don't like sharp dressers, because they do, but obviously any man worried about a few wrinkles in his shirt while he's hiking isn't actually into women.

      I have one for my food with a clear window on the side. It helps a little, though it’s more of a gimmick.

      My clothing and quilts are just stuffed into my pack.

    You need one only for your sleeping bag and down jacket. Maybe one mesh bag for dirty clothes.

      If you live in bear country you need one for your food which you'll be hanging in a tree at night, unless you have a food barrel. I used the 15L version of pic related for my last camping trip and it survived a crazy thunderstorm. Also fit in my pack almost fully loaded which was nice.

        Yeah, dry bags are the shit for this.

        Tie/carabiner paracord to dry bag, hang, stake tag end, finished.

        In the morning, you can put other shit in the dry bag that can be in your tent at night, but that you want to make sure stays dry while on the move.

      I hate that you end up with that rigid handle like thing. Any way to mitigate that? It makes packing them really annoying
      For clothes I bought a set of heavy duty ziploc refrigerator bags. if you put something heavy on them (like a large book) while you're closing them you can expel all the air out and pack your clothes really thin. I have not done tests with submerging etc. but they're airtight so I assume that the inside will stay dry.
      I want to invest in some kind of large dry bag to line my ruck with but is that really necessary with modern bergen type packs? For the time being I'll probably just go with

        Dry bags are great. A trashbag works too but is obviously noiser and less water resistant. Packing clothes in mini bags is fine but i do it for the organisation and compression mostly. They always open up again mod trip and you find its hard to compress them outdoors than at home

    This on everything. Not really but tent did well. No signs of degradation. Been a couple years since application. Might need another. Just did backpack recently. Still no replacement for dry sacks.
    I only have one for my sleeping bag, a Sea to Summit EVent compression bag.

      This. Best dry bag on the market. It lets out all the air when you roll it up. Way easier than the normal ones.

    The green sea to summit compression/drybag, top right and the snugpak are my favorites and the best quality. I do a lot of canoeing, portaging and kayaking so i like my stuff to be extra waterproof. I also find that a pack cover wont keep your pack dry in severe rain over a day or two and eventually will soak through to the packs contents, so i like to pack any clothes and valuables in the dry bags and use things like my rain jacket or an extra warm shirt to fill in the gaps.
    Garbage bags are a good temporary solution but if you arent a poorfag you should buy a drybag

    i don't compress anything anymore its fundamentally kind of stupid to.
    >more weight
    >packs worse
    >carries worse
    for what? i get it on a mountain expedition with 75L of gear but wtf are you doing that actually requires compressing your gear to squeeze more volume out of your backpack? just buy a better sized backpack.
    i keep some dry bag that was $3 on amazon for my pct bear hang. and a small one for my first aid kit.
    why do there need to be gear threads about literal $3 gear? just buy it. if you really want a fancy-dick dcf one they're $20.

      Easier to grab and find stuff and pull it out when it's not so tightly packed in your bag.

    biggest thing i catch noobs doing is putting everything in their bag in a stuff sack. the most you need is like 1 for your med kit and 1 general one. don't buy all your gear in the same color and you won't need to make your gear pack and carry far worse in stuff sacks to organize it.

      I use one more than this, about the size of a pencil case, to keep certain small items in, but I could probably do without it and use a pack pocket instead, so generally I agree.

      Obviously, things that came with their own stuff/compression sacks (poncho, pack jacket, sleeping bag) stay in their sacks.

        compression sack for clothing? bro why would you want to take all your loose clothing, which is the best thing for filling all the gaps in your packing job, and turn it into another large object that doesn't pack well you have to deal with?
        only do that if you need dry bags to cross water.

          Yeah, I've always used the word "ballast" to describe clothing and similar for this same reason.

          In fact, if I'm testing out how I'll pack a new loadout/pack or whatever but I'm not actually leaving that day/anytime soon, I'll use hand towels, dishtowels, and small beach towels as "simulated clothing" for this purpose.
