Instead of strapping your sleeping bag to the outside of your pack like a rookie, pack it down to a manageable size with the Outdoor Research UltraLight Compression Sack and stash it in your backpack. The four-strap design cinches the internal items down, and the lightweight siliconized fabric slides easily into your pack.
The Outdoor Research UltraLight compression sack reduces sleeping bags and clothing items down to a pack-friendly size.
20% lighter than its previous incarnation, this lightweight compression sack reduces sleeping bags and other stuffables to a pack-friendly size. The silnyl fabric resists moisture and slides into your pack with ease. A pocket in the end cap keeps track of small items or can be used for self storage.

I bought this to fit a blanket I bought at the PX in Kandahar but the blanket was too big. It needs the 8L. But my poncho liner fit perfect without too much bulk. Others have noted that there are no side cinches. I may get some straps and see if I can make that work myself. Planning on buying the 25L one for my sleeping bag. OR makes great gear. Looks like this is an updated version of the orange and gray ones on discount. It looks like the tube material on these is thinner and likely lighter. I also like the quick-release buckles.
I bought two of these a 5l and a 10l for light backpacking.What I really needed was two of the smaller ones for summer packing. I was able to get my complete sleep system into tha small bag and will be able to get my complete colder weather system in the large one.weight listed was right on.
No way to lose the top of the stuff sack and is nice and light, I swapped out my tent bag for this to save on some space. ended up purchasing the 8L works perfect for the tent i own,The North Face Mica Fl 2.
I purchased the 8L sack for my clothes in my pack & it is PERFECT for this! Super Lightweight! Quality! Perfect!
As soon as I put this sack through some real trail time I will let you know if my feelings change!
I have the MontBell U.L. Super Spiral Hugger #0 Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down sleeping bag in regular length and it fits perfect inside the 15L compression sack. Fairly lightweight and it compresses well.
This bag is great at what it does, but one issue that happened is that where the strap is sewed to the top lid, the fabric ripped already. This happened on the first use! Not full quality like you would expect from Outdoor Research gear. Still using it, but disappointed.
