Verified Buyer Reviewed by The cabin crew from New Hampshire on Friday, January 2, 2015High Quality great price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Liberator from KY on Tuesday, November 4, 2014I already have 6L for this using for my blankets and other lighter sleeping bags. I purchased this one to use with my Grand Trunk 32F sleeping bag since my version did not come with compression bag. It was tight fit for my type of sleeping bag but love easily compress the sack. I still have regular strap based sack but I would use this over straps any day.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by KayakerRay from Castro Valley, CA on Wednesday, September 10, 2014This is an awesome improvement over the standard compression bag. I used it during a 3 week trip to Africa & found it extremely helpful for compressing clothes inside carry on luggage. Design allows pulley leverage to maximize compression. Sturdy construction yet lightweight. Don't leave home without one of these!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by R.E. from California on Saturday, July 19, 2014This sack is good for your clothes as they fit nicely. The material is thin but held up well on its first outing. It is easy to over tighten the sack and you will start to notice stress points at some of the seams.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Phil from Philadelphia on Wednesday, June 18, 2014Lightweight and compact when not in use, with very good compression strength. The "block and tackle" approach works better than I thought it would.

“Would I get any benefit using this on a syn bag....or useful for down only due to its compress ability”
It would compress you synthetic bag a bit more than just using a stuff sack, but it would not be near the compression you could get with a down bag.
“am looking at buying a sleeping bag for my twenty-five year old daughter for Christmas and read in sleeping bag reviews that others have bought a compression sack along with the bag and it has helped them when it comes to packing up the bag. How could that be? I'm not sure exactly what a compression sack does or how it works.||thanks for your help!”
A compression sack has special straps to compress the bulk of its contents and make it easier for hikers and mountaineers to carry.
