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.

This is not ultralight and not waterproof - there are expensive saks out there that are dry and light. This is bulletproof, won't tear, great for really cranking down on sleeping bags without worry. I am going to spray it with waterproofing spray, and I bet that does the trick for a lot less than what is sold out there. A plastic garbage bag works well too.

Great Value, especially for the money. A size medium fits a 20 degree synthetic Alps mummy bag perfectly! Thick material that appears to be constructed well and not rip out at the seams like some inferior stuff and compressions do.

This is a study (and comparatively heavy--backpackers beware!) stuff sack, but I find it quite difficult to straighten out the straps before having at least two cups of coffee in the morning. Even then, it's a pain. When the bag is empty, the straps tend to get tangled up and it's tough to realign them in order to compress the sack. I know it's not rocket science here, but it gets frustrating. There are better designed stuff sacks on the market, but not too many that are cheaper...
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.
