When you need to save on space and weight, the Compression Dry Sack from Sea to Summit is the ideal solution for hiking or adventure travel.
This sack is made from Ultra-Sil nylon and the base is made from eVENT® air permeable fabric on the base which allows you to compress the air out and not allow water in. It’s also got double stitched and tape sealed seams and reinforced stitching on all of the stress points of this sack to ensure performance. To secure the contents, this sack has a waterproof Hypalon roll-top closure with lid and 4 straps for compressing the volume of your gear.
The interior is white to make it easier to see inside, and it's around half the weight of original eVent Compression Dry Sack so it's perfect for lightweight expeditions. Squash your gear down to up to one-third of its volume and keep it dry with some help from a Compression Dry Sack from Sea to Summit.

I purchased the larger sack and everything inside keeps dry up the front of our inflatable boat. The compression feature works well, although until you have used it a few times you can get the straps tangled up when you try to slide the canopy over the top of the sack.
I was loking at purchasing the Talus WTSII Wmn's Sleeping Bag, and was wondering what size compression bag would I need for it.
The Sea to Summit Talus WTSII Sleeping Bag packs down to around 7.1L when compressed. I'd recommend using the Medium Sea to Summit Compression Dry Sack because it starts at 14L and compresses down to about 4.5L.
I have a -15 Bush Lite Down Sleeping Bag (one planet) that is a REGULAR size so about 185cm tall and weighs 1185 grams. I was wondering what size compression sack would be the best fit?
Normally we'd recommend someone pops into the store to give it a try but I'm not sure that'll work in your situation. I'd probably recommend the Medium Sea to Summit Compression Dry Sack. A compression sack can always be made smaller but it can't be made any bigger, plus if there's ever any excess room then you can always add your thermals or pillow in the back to compress as well.
Can these be used to compress tents & flys (with poles/stakes elsewhere of course)? Or do tents not compress much anyway, or perhaps compression might damage the tent?
Whilst using a Sea to Summit Compression Dry Sack on your tent shouldn't damage it at all, I doubt that it will compress it much more than you'd usually expect from just rolling it up.
How sturdy is this bag? How would it compare to a vinyl bag?
A high quality vinyl bag is going to be quite durable and abrasion resistant, and in general they’re made for taking with you out on the water for kayaking etc.
The compression dry sack is designed more to go inside your pack, and keep your gear completely dry and compressed - so it may be slightly less durable than something that’s designed to be out in the open where it’s going to get roughed around.
