    That's awesome! Congrats!

    The Granite Gear sacks compress the quilts even further? No harm to the down? If so, I may have to look into those.

    Great photos Nate. Thanks again!

    Regarding the compression sacks. That is one of the great things about goose down. It has ability to spring back from considerable compression quite easily. The key is not to store it compressed for too long. For backpacking trips, I usually get to the camp site, set up camp, and pull my down items out of there storage sacks so they can be nice and lofted when I am ready for them.

    wow. i love those compression bags too- i am wondering if my 0deg Incubator would need a small or medium- was it tight on the 20 or more room?

    I am waiting for my HG box currently, but with my sleeping bag (and most likely with my TQ and UQ) I just stuff them in the bottom of my pack in a trash compactor bag and then squish my other stuff on top. Though I am not a gram weenie, I do like to go lite where I can and getting the stuff sacks out of my pack is one way to do that.

    One could consider a Cuben pack liner from Zpacks http://www.zpacks.com/accessories/dry_bags.shtml to stuff all the downy goodness into as an option too. Of course with this option I would not submerge my pack!

    If weight is not a concern and space in your pack is at a premium, then by all means, a compression sack is the way to go! I have a couple of older GG compression sacks that have done me well for 10+ years.
