    I have holes in my silnylon tent bag and duct tape has prevented them from spreading for over 4 years now. When I tried using just drysacs I found that one with compression straps worked best. The compression feature gives the bag structure so it doesn't flop around. Also a slightly thicker bag will avoid any puncturing....I've used these for overnight trips and find it hard to believe that the 70D eVent fabric would be punctured by accident.

    here are some pictures of my progress. its a dry bag with a down sleeping bag, a sil-nylon tarp, rope, and a bug net. i'm going to use my super large saddle bag to space the dry bag away from my seat. i have tried previously with it parrallel to my body from the seat, but now i with attach it perpendicular to my bicycle and me.

    I don't think anyone mentioned Revelate Designs but they make all sorts of fun gear for bikepacking. I thought about getting their Terrapin and doing some shorter fast and light tours on my fixed gear.
