I got this to replace a lost sleeping bag sack. My average size mummy bag fit with a little bit of effort. It compresses the bag to about half the size and seems to be good quality. Overall happy with purchase, exactly as described.

Needed a new stuff sack for my sleeping bag, and I am trying to get into backpacking so I wanted a compression sack to minimize the bulk. Chose this bag because of the dimensions. Fits my sleeping bag perfectly and compresses it nicely to fit into my pack. Nothing complicated. Stuff sack was longer than I envisioned.

I used this to pack my kid's Ledge 0 degree sleeping bag. As others have mentioned, it is quite sturdy, especially compared to a waterproof one from sea to summit that I have. The tradeoff for this is obviously a higher weight. Both the ledge bag and my Kelty Tuck 20 degree synthetic bag fit in easily. The issue is that even when the straps are tightened all the way it doesn't compress nearly as much as I'd like. I think that the sleeping bags in the manufacturer's sacks are about 16 inches long. With the straps tightened all the way the medium ALPS bag only goes to about 12 inches. On the other hand, it sounds like the small bag may be too small for a serious synthetic bag.

This is one of the better built compression bags I've owned. Fits my 20f Slumberjack synthetic sleeping bag. However, the waterproof version of this bag works better for that. The stiff collar on the waterproof version is easier to get over the sleeping bag.

No complaints here. Overall quality seems good. Material seems durable. I actually bought the large, then bought the medium for my sleeping bag. It's pretty tight, but it will pack a little better. Not sure what I would use the end pocket for, but it's better to have one than not if I ever figure out what to put in it!
I would say buy the large. I have down bags and the medium is more than big enough. My problem with synthetics has always been getting them in the bag to start with and I just think I would go with the large sack unless you are better at stuffing them than me.

This size should fit your bag, but it hard to say without the dimensions. It will fit most regular mummy bags, especially down. It will compress down to about 18", it just depends how tight you pull the straps.
