    I use unscented generic store brand.. So cheap that it doesn't really matter.

    I've used mine to hang my food bag and pack in particularly 'active' areas,

    i've debated a pack cover for years and frankly, with my quilts, hammock and clothing bag inside the compactor bag, everything else can get wet. But that's for another thread.

    I'm not specifically a UL guy, and decidedly not SUL, but the above has served me with all of the functionality of quilt/bag stuff sacks and pack covers, if not with more functionality. No reason to add weight, cost, and packing time when a cheap compactor bag works so well (in my IMO).

    When I do make stuff sacks, I like nacra's excellent tutorial for a rectangular bottom stuff sack as I like the way they pack and find them pretty easy to execute. It may take a little head scratching to figure out the template, but it is essentially the same concept as Papa Smurf's zipper pouch technique and has many applications outside of stuff sacks.

    I started off by stuffing my quilt into a stuff sack I already had that was larger then required. I could then twist the top to effectively reduce the volume of the stuff sack to the required amount. From that, I then approximated the volume by measuring the approximate stuffed dimensions. Finally, I designed a stuff sack that had maybe 20 to 30% more volume. Having a larger than required SS makes it easier to stuff the quilt in the sack, and the sack into the pack (since there is additional compression-ability to jam other stuff around or between).

    Now I have several stuff sacks for different quilts I've made. When I make a new one, I start with one of those and I can get close pretty easily.
