I bought this for a 15 degree North Face 650 fill down sleeping bag. The bag was compressed no problem, but I would say the compression sack was too large for this sleeping bag. I would recommended this for a 0 degree or colder bag or a "long" sized sleeping bag. When I compressed my bag, the straps ran out and I felt there was still a lot more compression to be done on my sleeping bag. It does just what it needs to do and holds the load together without allowing it to bulge out when under compression.
The one flaw I could note is that the bag has two little strips of velcro to make it stick together when you aren't using it. Yes it makes the compression sack look nice and pretty when not in use, but if you are using it, this velcro likes to stick to the cinch strap at the top and tear it up. I think they should remove the velcro, or make a snap. No one needs their compression sack to look nice when on display. Function all day long...

We bought these to compress our sleeping bags for travel and they really seem great. We haven't taken our trip yet, so we haven't seen if they hold together for weeks, but we put our sleeping bags in our compression sacks and they now are able to fit in our duffle bag really well.
