    When size matters 😝

    I have bin scouring forums, vendor sites, youtube, etc.. but for the life of me, nowhere can I find a picture of an UQ OR TQ "IN IT'S SACK" (compression or whatever) for putting in a backpack! Granted some people just stuff it in their packs.
    Granted, yes, down will be smaller then synthetic, but how much? I believe general consensuses do prefer down which I'm after.
    Is it comparable to a sleeping bag? How much space do these actually take up?

    So my question is, can anyone share up a pic of it next to something to get an idea of compatibility/size in their sack before it goes into their backpack?

    Any help would be most greatly appreciated, and THANKS!

    I put both quilts in a single Zpacks Large Rectangle Dry Bag, because that dry bag is the exact right size to fill the bottom of a HMG pack. I have fit 10F top and bottom quilts into that bag, and it could probably fit two 0.

    Here it is with two 30 quilts.

    Thanks guys! I can definitely disregard my worry of size. Essentially, it takes no space greater then a regular sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent and poles.

    This is an old comparison but should still be relevant. I wish I had something more basic in the photo for reference.

    I have a 30L, 50L and a 75L. Depending on season or duration. No worries in that area
