Product Description

Pare your load down and travel fast on wide-open trails: these highly packable compression sacks perform on trips where weight and space need to be kept to a minimum. Constructed of silicone-coated ripstop nylon, with ripstop nylon compression rings on the ends, these sacks are ideal for compressing sleeping bags and down jackets. Two of the compression straps feature quick-release buckles to ease unpacking. A drawcord closure with a Hypalon® cordlock keeper cinches tight to keep lofty items from spilling out. The lid has a built in pocket that can be used to store small items or to hold the stuff sack when it’s not in use.

Great Bag
I use this bag to stuff my North Face Superlite 0 degree bag Down bag. I love the combo of water and dampness protection and the compression straps. I have really cranked on the straps and they just keep on smashing it down. The quick release clips and straps and great to get your bag out and fluffing up fast and easy. Outdoor Research have got their act together with these bags. They obviously have spent some time in the outdoors and are not just peddling some gear that someone just thought up.
