Sea to Summit eVent Compression Sack

Sea to Summit eVent Compression Sack

Combine the compactness and durability of a compression sack with the versatility of a dry bag with the Sea to Summit eVent Compression Sack. Perfect for storing a down sleeping bag or anything else you want to keep dry, the eVent’s polyurethane coating offers total waterproofness and the seams are tape sealed and double stitched for even more protection.

How does it work? The air-permeable eVent waterproof fabric allows air to be pushed out of the sack without allowing water in. You simply pack the sack and then fold up the roll-top securely to keep water out, buckle, and then cinch like a regular compression sack.

Available in multiple sizes from 6 to 30 liters, you will find the right size bag for your adventure. Weighing in tops at 7 ounces, the eVent Compression Sacks are super light and four compression straps ensure an evenly compressed size. A nice pull handle on the top of the bag makes for easy hauling and lets you easily secure the bag to the boat or back of your pack.
