As stated, I'm a minimalist when camping out of my kayak, but who doesn't like comfort whenever possible? I purchased this for making my sleeping bag more compact when packing it into my kayak. I not only fit my sleeping bag in this size Lg cmp.sack, I also fit a travel pillow in as well. First time...

I bought this stuff bag to pack my sleeping bag. It fits nicely (with even some room to spare so I think a XL sleeping bag will fit well inside too). I also owned traditional stuff bags before and I must say that the compression straps are great and very useful to compress fluffy items like a sleeping bag. Plus the fabric and straps seem very sturdy. I haven't taken it outdoor yet, but I am very happy with this purchase so far.

I did return the bag and reordered a medium. I haven't used it in a real-life scenario but Sierra Trading Post sent the review link, so what the heck I'll provide my initial thoughts. I kayak camp and upgraded to a better boat with less volume, so I bought the bags to squish my gear into the smaller hatches. I ordered the large and medium not knowing which I'd used. After playing around with stuffing my sleeping bag, tent and clothing, the Medium seemed to be the righ size to squish in my hatches and the nooks and crannies of a sea kayak. The large in the same company was way too large and I'm not sure you'd even find a use for it on a backpacking trip unless you'd put the whole bag inside your backpack and stuff all your gear into it before compressing. I returned the large and ordered a second medium. I agree with other posters that the deeper end-caps keep the bag from squishing even more. MIght have to see what else I can get into the bag so maximize squishable space. It is build ruggedly and I felt like I could really tork down on the straps. Not sure what I'll use the zippered pouch for, but I'm sure I'll find something to put in there, only to forget that it's in there. I will most likely put these in a waterproof dry bag before packing into my boat. I did return the large and replaced it with a medium.
hey I have a -20 alps long and it barely fits in a granite gear 2xl - 50L bag...my -20 is 7lb 14oz. so to answer your question, probably not, plus my wife has a 0 alps long and it barely fits in the alps medium bag.
alps doesn't make a bag big enough even the XL and it wont fit...I have tried it.
