The Granite Gear Slacker Packer eVent Compression Drysack Rucksack is an ultralight packable rucksack that doubles as a dry bag and compression bag.
Granite Gear says:
All the features of the Slacker Packer DrySack but with three compression straps around the circumference of the bag that allow you to reduce the bulk of your sleeping bag or other gear inside your bigger pack, and stabilize the load when you’re using the Slacker Packer Compression DrySack as a pack.
Granite Gear's Slacker Packer eVent Compression Drysack is a really handy piece of kit for any minimalist trekker or traveler. It's basically an extremely lightweight 25 litre rucksack that also doubles as a dry bag. It's ideal for using inside your larger pack to protect your sleeping bag or trail clothes, then deploy for a hike into town for resupply, or use as a summit or blue blaze pack.
In terms of pack features it's pretty basic with tubular compression straps, lightly padded shoulder straps with chest strap and no back frame. But that's all you need out of a pack like this. The pack is fully seam sealed, has a roll top closure and event panel that allow air to escape but keeps the water out. Ideal for trips when you need to keep your weight and pack size to a minimum.
