I have had the small yellow stuff sack for almost 2 years now and it is holding up far better than the house brand stuff sacks from the big co-op retailer. This was also one-third the cost on clearance at Gander Mtn. The yellow end caps get a little dingy and the grey straps show dirt, but hey, I drop it in the dirt all the time when I pull my tent out of it and it rides on my motorcycle often so it gets a few bugs on it. It looks like new after being run through my front-loading washer on cold. The three best features of this bag are the nearly bomb-proof cloth, the good heavy stitching, and the quick release buckles. The buckles save time and frustration when putting the cap on - whereas fixed straps end up twisted and or crossed over one another. This bag isn't for weight-weenies. It's heavy duty and will last. It's still one of the top 3 best buys in my camping kit.
