I am looking to do day hikes (maybe camp over overnight), and am looking for a recommendation of the best dry sack for carrying hiking food? How big of a dry sack should I get to carry food?
In general, I think the best sized dry sack for carrying food in your backpack is an 8 Liter Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Dry Sack. It has enough room to hold food for 2 days, and is ultra lightweight at only 1.1 oz. If you're going for really short hikes and don't need to bring lots of food, you could get away with a 4 Liter Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Dry Sack, but the bag is not as versatile as an 8 Liter stuff sack when you want to bring along bulkier foods or freeze dried meals and the 4 L dry sack only weighs a little less at 0.9 oz. If your're planning on hikes longer than 2 days, then you'd probably want a larger 13 Liter Dry Sack, just to ensure you have enough room for all of your food.
