    Is this a good stuff sack for a bishop bag?

    I'll be stuffing these items in a single bishop bag:

    - WBBB
    - JRB Shenandoah topquilt
    - Molly Mac Gear IX underquilt

    I don't have a sewing machine, so I need to buy a stuff sack to get me started. Do you think this one would fit me well?

    Here is a screenshot for those of you trying to view this after the auction expires: http://i.imgur.com/S5ihe.png

    The size of the bag is 22"x27"...

    Thanks!

    It looks fine. What's it made of? I couldn't find any info on that.

    "Colors Vary" probably means you'll get a pink one...

    I'd get the REI one for sure...

    Also check Wal-Mart I know the ones out my way carry ditty bags and dry bags in various sizes and will be half the cost of the REI ones.

    If you wanna check for size, put everything in a vacuum bag or gallon ziplock, push out air, and check size. Then see if that bag will hold it. A genius tip I saw on this forum!
