Matador Keeps the Wet Away with a Collapsible Water-Resistant Stuff Sack

For those whose EDC rotations haven’t been graced by Matador’s products, we have a surprise for you. The Colorado-based gear company specializes in making high-quality, shockingly affordable gear that marries design, technical materials, and versatility. Each product the brand produces is purpose-built and gets rigorously tested to ensure it performs at the highest levels. Matador is particularly well known for its ultra-utilitarian bags, which are designed to handle harsh conditions. Now, the Boulder brand seeks to add another offering to its lineup with the introduction of the Droplet Water-Resistant Stuff Sack.

The name may not roll off the tongue, but the Droplet Water-Resistant Stuff Sack is just that, a convenient sack you can put your stuff in so it doesn’t get wet. Simple in concept yet technical in execution, Matador created this collapsible 2.5L vessel to fit in a 2.5″ x 1.25″ silicone case for easy transport and storage. What’s more, the Droplet’s carrying case features a stainless steel keyring that can attach to virtually anything. Its superb ability to collapse and travel alone makes the Droplet a worthy inclusion to anyone’s EDC rotation, however, there’s more to this sack than meets the eye.

On the technical side of things, the Droplet features a construction of 20D Nylon ripstop with a PU waterproof coating. For an extra layer of water-proofing, Matador designed the sack to have sealed seams, which allows the bag to keep water either in or out. Given its drawstring closure, the Droplet can’t protect your valuables from submersion, however, it’s perfect for keeping a soaked bathing suit or sweaty gym clothes from getting surrounding materials wet, as well as protecting your valuables from splashes or spills.

The Droplet comes in either black or blue and is a fantastic option for any on-the-go traveler who’s looking for an easy-to-store storage solution. Matador’s Droplet Water-Resistant Stuff Sack retails for $17 and is available on its website.
