    I finally got around to trying out my 10` standard width. My 11` Trail Lair with winter cover, 20 degree WL quilt set and 3.6 oz insulated underquilt protector all fit inside.

    I have the larger version, and for this weekend I had the following wrapped by the catch-all:
    o Dutch Chameleon, standard width
    o Ridgeline organizer
    o Sidesling
    o EE Revelation 20* TQ
    o Hammock Gear Econ Incubator 0* UQ
    o 2QZQ Underquilt protector
    o An old Redhead synthetic compressible pillow

    I just stuff mine into a compactor bag in my pack. The entire setup takes up about half of a Exos 58, but again that’s with a full length 0* underquilt. Stuffing the compactor bag takes a minute or two, but once my suspension is hung, my hammock and quilts are in place and ready to go in about 30 seconds. If I really need more space, I could get a true compression bag and probably compress another 25%. But that might mean relofting could take a little longer.
    Plus one on the compacter trash bag. Cheap (Free), effective, and versatile. No need for a slug tube or catch all sack. As always, YMMV

    So how does the new style pack up with the mesh strip? Any difficulty getting the air out? I'm trying to decide which one to get.

    Packs down easy for me... prefer it over full sil nylon in my opinion.

    Same here. Just packed it up today leaving the campsite. Compared to a full sil tube, the air escapes easily and makes for far quicker packing and compressing.
