View Full Version : Compression sack?

What would be the best size compression sack for my 3x3m DD tarp? Whats the volume of the stuff sack it comes with?

I was thinking about picking up an eVent XS but concerned it might still be too big. It recommends 2-6l

Hi HB.
DD tarp stuff sack is 8" x 15" exactly. Its a rectangular shape. Made from polyester 190T.

IMO, its a bit too big. I never use it now. My tarp gets rolled up and then I wind my lines round it to stop them tangling, to protect the tarp and it also compresses the thing well. I end up with a 2" x 18" roll of DD tarpy goodness.

Aye the bag is a bit big. Perfect size for packing it but once its packed I can compress it with my hands to half the size - which is why I might be better off with a compression sack.

Tried rolling it but I prefer just stuffing the bugger into the bag after tidying up my guys.
