    This bag is quite a bit smaller than the Base Camp but uses the same filter.

    Here's what the SeaToSummit site says...
    A less expensive and less bulky alternative to traditional dry bags. You can squash these into spots ordinary heavy dry bags won’t go. Fits into little corners of a sea kayak or light enough to take backpacking or adventure traveling. Suitable to keep contents dry in any wet situation where the bag is not submerged.

    Much lighter weight and more “packable” than traditional boating dry bags
    A lot less expensive than other dry bags on the market
    Designed for backpacking, adventure travel and water sports
    Made from a high performance waterproof fabric
    Bright white inner laminate for easy visibility of contents
    Fully taped sealed seams
    Hypalon™-stiffened roll-top closure
    D-ring attachment point at buckle
    XXS - Small: flat bottom design
    Medium - XXL: round base design"
