    Best Waterproof liner I've seen yet

    I'm loving those Hefty 2.5 gallon bags. They beat out the expensive SpaceBags for keeping air and water out. One bag lasts for months! Ya just stuff your clothes in, press out the air and presto. A very flat pack!

    I do not know why I find this post so amusing

    A vacuum sealer might prove interesting.

    Judging by recent traffic postings, we need all the humor we can get in here!

    I did that last year on Cycle North Carolina -- at least when I packed everything up at home before the trip. Once I got into the ride, I tended to just throw everything in my main bag and not worry about it. But those big zipper bags sure worked well as a poor man's "space bag."

    Not unless you have been using ziplock bags for the last 22 years.

    Space Bags = junk. Once the zipper falls off...good luck getting it back on correctly to zip...junk!

    Only if I get to count mine too. Then we are talking about trash bags as emergency rain coats, about 1968.
