    Stuff Sack for JRB Quilt

    Okay I need help with this stuff sack. I just received my JRB Mt. Rogers Quilt and stuff sack. The top of the stuff sack has a nylon strap sewed half way around it and two pieces of Velcro. How do I close this thing up? With the quilt stuffed the Velcro alone doesn't hold it closed and what do you do with the strap?

    With that out of the way, oh this quilt is so sweet. I'm never getting out of bed again. I can't wait to try it in my HH.

    I'm pretty sure that's one of their compression sacks - I just 'came into' one myself this past weekend

    Looks like the strap and velcro are part of a rolled closure like on a dry bag you'd use for a water trip.

    Thanks guys, much clearer. I'm not a smart man.

    Actually I sorta tried it that way but thought I was doing something wrong.
    So it its ok to squash it down that much.

    Squash away. As long as you dont store it that way at home when youre off the trail, you will be fine. Sorry about the double post earlier from me and Jeff. Looks like he beat me to the punch. BD

    Put the quilt into the bag, close the velcro, then push the quilt down so it's compressed a bit. Roll the top of the bag down. Wrap the nylon strap around the bottom of the bag, between the bag and the flap. Fasten the strap thru the buckles and cinch it tight. You can get a really good compression if you pull the buckles tight, then recenter the strap and pull again.

    Neo's the only person I've ever heard complain about JRB or Hennessy gear falling apart. Neo, I wonder if you use your gear differently than others.

    Not a durability issue, but I just got a JRB Old Rag Mountain in the mail today (thanks, Pan!). He sent the standard compression sack with it - which was cool - but it's not big enough. The quilt barely fits in the sack with no room for the rolled closure to work. It'd be big enough with a drawstring, but not the compression top.

    I thought the same thing when I got my Mt. Rogers. But it does fit, and the compression thingy works as described by the others. Just gotta really stuff it in there and roll the top over and cinch it down.

    I love my Mount Rogers it is so warm. I used it last night wearing just shorts and at 30 degrees I was plenty warm.
