Gear Review: Granite Gear Uberlight eVent Stuffsack

These Cuben Fiber stuffsacks are light and tough.

Made of Cuben Fiber (an ultralight, ultratough ripstop sailcloth), the Granite Gear Uberlight eVent proved virtually puncture-proof (though prone to abrasion, so don’t strap it outside your pack). It’s also compressible, thanks to an eVent panel on the bottom of the stuffsack that lets air escape as you roll the top down. Wicked light, too: The seven-liter size weighs just half an ounce. $39-49; .5-.7 oz.; granitegear.com
