Product Description

The Zip Sacks are a very handy bag that can be used for many different purposes depending on what size you get and what you like to travel with. You could use it for on the trail to store all your food in, or store just important items that you will need instead of unloading your entire pack to get to the right one. I use it in many different ways, one of which is while traveling; I store all my odds and ends in it. I can fit fuel bottles and my stove all in one, and still have room for water bottles and a med kit. Now I have a larger size, so this is easier, but it’s really nice because I don't have to hand pack every little item in my luggage, it’s already in one durable bag. Most people would use compression sacks for their packing, but why waste a compression sack on something you cannot compress? This is the bag for those items!

It’s made of a strong ripstop material, but still super light. It’s also water resistant, and very durable. Outdoor Research also includes it in their "Infinite Guarantee" so you’re covered if something destroys it.

Good for anything
I use these for just about anything. I wish I had more, and might need to make an investment soon! I carry everything from rock climbing gear in it, to food. Its the get it all done bag.
