Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack

March 30, 2009

Continuing with my adventure in my Five Ten Canyoneer 2 Shoes, I also needed something to keep my sandwich, camera and topo dry for the day for my first canyoneering experience! Since my stop in Zion was not planned, I hadn't come prepared with my pelican case for keeping things waterproof. All I had that was accessible and waterproof was my Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack. Normally a home for my sleeping bag, my Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack had already served me very well as a compression sack for my down bag. Thankfully, I had yet to have an experience where I had really been able to test the waterproof-ness of my stuff sack. A day in the canyons of Zion in March really put the eVent fabric to the test. Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack eVent: What a cool idea for a stuff sack. Allows air out, but doesn't allow water in. No valve necessary for air escape, and totally waterproof. Reinforced stitching at crucial points: After hauling this compression sack up Shasta, Rainier, Baker, throughout most of Switzerland and down into the canyons in Zion National Park, none of the seams are even showing wear. Pull handle makes for easy grabbing, even if it's at the bottom of a pack. Comes in multiple sizes, from volumes of 6 liters up to 30 liters. Puttin' it to the test! I used my Sea to Summit eVent Compression Dry Sack as my only dry location for things throughout my day of canyoneering in Zion. I put my headlamp, lunch, topo, extra layer and camera inside of the sack, rolled the Hypalon strip over, and didn't get back into the dry sack until about half way though the canyon to snap some neat pictures. After jumping into several pools of water deeper than I was tall, wading through rivers, and rappelling into pools for 6 hours, I opened my dry sack, curious to see how the items inside were holding up. After all that time submersed, everything inside the sack was DRY! Not a drop of moisture inside. I was SO impressed with the material! Topo was dry, chips for lunch still crunchy and camera intact!
