    Sea to Summit has Sil bags that are more water resistant. Not sure how small they go though. I have used their products canoeing and have been very impressed.

    Very few bags are truly waterproof. So much depends on closure and that is a user issue. The only things I think are absolutely waterproof are boxes with rubber rings and mechanical closures. Such are made for electronics, cameras and so on. I refer to the bags I use canoeing as "splash proof" so as not to set expectations too high and as a way to encourage folks to do everything possible to keep their stuff dry. Otherwise, they can get really sloppy with their paddling thinking everything is "waterproof."

    Double lining really makes a difference as well. Just my $.02.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I made a mistake...it's on jwbasecamp, not on Jason Klass. Here's the link.
