    peapod stuff sack question

    I noticed on a seperate post, someone complained about how hard it was to put the peapod back into its stuff sack (the one that came with it). Has anyone else had this problem?
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )

    For me at least, the SnugFit has the same problem. A Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil bag of appropriate size fixes said problem with no trouble whatsoever. Aslo keeps your TQ, UQ or PP dryer, no drawcord hole for water to leak into.

    What are the dimensions of the "sea to summit" stuff sack?: What size would you recommend for the PP?

    The Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil dry bags come in 7 different sizes and are great to keep a little of anything dry. I use a few of them in my pack for my clothes bag, food bag, small miscellanous items bag and for my TQ/UQ. I can easily get a SnugFit and Speer Top Blanket in a 20-Liter bag with plenty of room to spare. I would think that a Pea Pod would fit very well in it also.

    I have had a similar experience with the speer top blanket. I use a roll top sack that is about twice the size of the supplied stuff sack.

    I thought it was a pretty tight fit, but Angrysparrow said he gets his into it's stuff sack, so I decided I would get mine into it's stuff sack... no more problems.

    I use the hammock end to trap the bag while pushing the last bit in.

    I change out the stock stuff sacks that come with almost every thing to larger sacks that are easy to stuff. Then I use my pack as the final stuff sack. An added benifit is that the pack is always evenly filled.

    I personally had no problems getting it into the stuff sack. My only complaint was the stuff sack was not also a compression sack. I like the dry compression sacks that come with some of the higher end sleeping bags (like my MH Ultra Lamina).
