I've just bought one of these as I needed a large drybag for a bulky sleeping bag (Golite Adrenaline 0°) and spare baselayer/socks etc. I had intended to buy a 20l S2S Ultrasil roll top but the shpo didn't have any so bought the Exped instead. It's short and wide rather than long and narrow which makes packing easier but obviously has a longer opening which together with the 'valve' might make it more prone to leak. That aside it does pack down well and fits my pack nicely.
Anyone used an Exped Shrink Bag, if so whats your opinion.
It probably isn't much less compressed than it would be in a regular compression stuff sack but it's a different shape, flatter and wider rather than a pretty solid cylindrical shape. In the shrink bag it completely fills the base of a rucksack but provides a flat surface for packing everything else unlike a regular compression sack which doesn't match the shape of a rucksack very well at all.
I only use the shrink bag for my Golite Adrenaline 0°f as it's a very bulky sleeping bag even though it's down, for my lighter down bags I use Sea to Summit silnylon roll top drybags.
