    Bishop bag for NX250?

    I think I would like to try one. Anyone else use one? If so what size will fit and where should I get one? Thanks

    Not to deny the Jacks your business, but:

    The stuff sack Clark includes is attached at the bottom of the pocket on a sufficiently generous piece of fabric. It is a fine one, with velcro closure and handles.

    No reason the ends of it cannot be cut and stitched to work as a speed sack, too.
    In answer to the question: Size of sack would depend on how much you wish to stuff. I can compress an NX250 and rain fly by at least a third.

    Motivated by your question, I just stuffed an NX250 with a 14oz down 3/4 20F UQ into the Clark sack. (Equivalently, could have been a 40F rated top quilt.)
    Tight, yes, but it fits. Size? Roughly 13 long X 8 X 7 = 700cu in ~ 12l

    Is that stuffed including hammock, UQ and tarp in the single sack?

    No, that was the NX-250 with its rainshield and bugnet + suspension + UQ. If I added buttons to the sack to secure it, a tarp would have fit, as there was another 1-2" of the velcro patch available. But a wet tarp + down?

    For browsers: That's the largest Clark hammock with its weather-shield. I can't check now, but I believe Clark uses the same stuff sack for all its hammocks. So smaller Clarks and those without a weather-shield should be able to pack more.

    Lost in my previous comment was the observation that the included stuff sack is not sewn to the bottom of one pocket , but instead onto a 1-2" flap of nylon cloth that goes to the pockets bottom. It is as though Clark invites you to cut it that flap in the middle and easily re-attach the bag by sewing if you change your mind or habits
