And you thought silnylon was light. The Granite Gear Uberlight CTF3 Drysacks are dazzlingly light, waterproof, and surprisingly strong—it took nothing short of a switchblade to puncture the tough material (flexible Spectra fibers sandwiched between Mylar film). The 13-liter size weighs a mere .7 ounce, so you’d better keep it full—or else it’s liable to blow away. $38-48; granitegear.com
