    I've never found the compression sacks to be of any use; you either end up with a rock hard ball (or sausage) that's hard to pack. I use an Exped 'Compression' sack ~15L (with all the straps cut off, to reduce the weight by half). It'll take the Cumulus Panyam 600 + sleeping/ spare clothes; roll the top, pull the valve/ plug, kneel on it & put the plug back in; a nice small package that's mouldable. The dry bag also doubles as an inflator for the Neoair & Exped using a bit of tube.

    Same as Bumbly.:thumbsup:
    Hate compression bags; they are cruel monstrosities.:arghh:
    I could never live with the guilt of subjecting my lovely PHD bag to such a thing.:oops:

    Agree. Compression sacks are for bulky synthetic bags so they take up less room in the car.

    I keep dribbling (age) over a PHD bag rated to minus silly....but then I already own a Western Mountaineering Lynx GWS ....not quite sure the 500g weight saving is a good investment... I am always fat anyway over winter :redface:
