I used a High Desert drop bag for the first time at the 2011 Labor of Love 50-miler. Although it was April in the high desert, we had unusually cold weather, with snow,
sleet, wind and generally miserable conditions. My drop bag was the envy of all the other runners. An inch of snow had accumulated on it, but it still stood out from the
crowd. Everything inside was dry and easily accessible. The zipper worked great and made it easy to get things in and out in a hurry. I've used the bag for all my
ultras since, and it still looks brand new. Thanks for making such a durable, high quality product! Linda, Bishop, CA
Sept, 2013: "The drop bags worked like a champ at the North Face Ultra 50 miler in Wisconsin last weekend. I finished 1st place in my age group and having great gear is always part of a successful day. The bags are the perfect size and I love that the bright orange makes them easily visible at the aid stations. Thanks for a great product!" Darvish, Ankeny, Iowa
Aug, 2013: "I used it (Dirt Bag) during the Bulldog 50k last weekend and I loved it! The bright orange color was SOOO easy to spot. The Dirt Bag Drop Bag had just the right space for shoes, socks, food, first aid supplies and a special insulated bottle holder. There would have also been room for extra clothing if needed....but with the temp. in the 90's, there was no need for that."
GREAT PRODUCT! Fast delivery! Two things I love.

Nov, 2013: "Since I don’t use a crew these bags were invaluable. In one I had a change of insoles, extra socks, full night gear (it gets cold on that course in September), a large zip lock full of gels and snacks, and other essentials…and that was in the Dirt Bag. One of the great uses of this bag was being able to clean my feet off and put my fresh toes on a clean drop bag instead of the dirt or asphalt. At Brighton aid station I had a set of trekking poles, extra shoes, more socks, and snacks. I maybe had the bag half full. Since I had a fantastic pacer through both of these sections he can attest to how much easier it was to find my bags because they stood out from all the others...After the race it was easy to locate them at the finish line, pull my stuff out, tear my race tape off, and store them for my next outing. I can tell you now these are the best drop bag options on the market"

August 23, 2014 "Thanks! Luv the neon orange drop bag; Easy to locate and strong enough to hold a big Thermos of hot tea for after the cold Lost Lake Run."

September, 2014, "At Oil Creek, you can have a drop bag at Petroleum Center and a drop bag at the school so I had to prepare two drop bags. I had just treated myself to fancy new bags from High Desert Drop Bags, and I was really happy with them. They were sturdy, easy to locate, and had plenty of room."Heather D., Finisher, 2014 Oil Creek 100K.
