Lightweight, durable and waterproof. A great start to this peice of kit but add to that the simple but effective roll top, four compression straps and the quality eVent material and you have a great compression sack.
Granite Gear says:
The eVent Sil Compression DrySack allows you to maximize space inside your pack by reducing the packed size of bulky items like sleeping bags and clothes. The waterproof 30D Sil-Nylon Cordura construction is an incredible balance of strength and weight and an integrated roll-top closure further ensures complete protection. The eVent Sil Compression DrySack has a space-saving shape that purposely takes best advantage of the inner dimensions of a backpack. Not intended for submersion.
Once you've sealed the roll-top closure, you can cinch down the drysack with ultra-lightweight LineLoc compression straps. An innovative eVent air-purging bottom allows excess air to escape without jeopardizing weather protection. All seams are taped with eVent to provide further confidence. Not intended for submersion.

Granite Gear's eVent Sil Compression Drysack uses a breathable base made of waterproof eVent fabric, which allows air to be pushed out, but keeps water from entering. It is valve-free so very little to go wrong and it is is ideal for compressing your gear while keeping the contents dry.
Waterproof seams are double stitched and fully taped for excellent durability and resistance to moisture. The roll-top closure, lid and four straps evenly compress and maintain the size. The eVent Sil Compression Drysack is much lighter than the traditional compression sacks so it is ideal for saving weight without sacrificing performance. It still ticks all the boxes for functionality, they are tough, waterproof so they are secure and easy to use.
