    Question Dry sacks

    Hey guys, i was thinking about getting a UQ. Was wondering what kinda dry stuff sacks you all use to keep your gear dry. In particular im looking for ultralight ones, as i know they add alot of weight. Also interested in any other techniques/gear you may employ to keep UQ's/TQs dry, thanks.

    I like to use JRB stuff/compression sacks for my quilts. They come in different colors and two sizes. For other items I use walmart drybags. They don't work well for fluffy stuff like quilts IMO b/c you can't get the air out of them.

    Sea to Summit makes some great Sil bags. They work well for me paddling.
    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 have been using these for about three years and have been quite pleased with them:

    Hmm, see i was wondering if i even needed them, since all the AARN packs have waterproof http://www.aarnpacks.com/features/multifunction.html#wp . What do you guys think, let me know if any of you have experience with such a bag, and if dry sacks are needed with it or not.

    I rarely keep my quilts in stuff sacks/dry bags anymore. A little external prevention (pack cover/packa) will do the job quite nicely when combined with a pack liner.
    Trust nobody!

    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.

    I like most everything in dry bags makes it easier to get it out. Sea to Summit work great but the wally world cheepo 3 for $9 work fine for smaller things like my contact junk first aid toothbrush stuff, snack bag etc.
