    Compression sack for UQ and TQ together?

    I am looking for a compression sack to contain my JRB Nest, and my Rev X 30 degree. Ideally they will take up the normal spot for a sleeping back in my Osprey Kestrel pack. I really have no idea what literage I should choose but I have been looking at the 6L version of this:

    Any thoughts? The JRB came with a sack and the Rev X did not. Thanks!

    i can't speak for the exact volume... but i have that sack, and its great.
    6L seems a little small- i might spring for the 10L???

    -hope the revX works out for you!

    I have the E-vent medium I think and it was large enough for my Big Agnes encampment. I also have the sea to summit water proof bag 20l and its way over kill!!! Hope that helps!

    What is the Big Agnes encampment? What is this comprised of? I am thinking of getting the 10L now.

    I have one of these, and feel comfortable compressing my HG winter incubator in it, but that's about it.

    IMHO, the 10L will make stuffing easy, and compression will swallow/smash the volume of the revX/nest.

    I use the same thing for my sleeping bag. I found it easier to get a little bigger than I needed and just compress it down. I have the medium and it's more than enough room for my sleeping bag. I would think you would be fine with the 10L version.

    I think a 20L will be too big for what you want it for.

    that said,

    I like my 20l fine, but it gets strapped to my Molly Mac Pack, so it can be whatever size I need it to be (ie: stuffed to the gills with 3 season TQ, UQ, hammock, clothes OR just my summer quilts and rolled tight).

    I have an UQ that has a grommet in the end of it and hangs from my ridge-line. In order for me to not have to pull the ridge-line out every time (which might eventually wear on my whoopieslings) I have opted to compression sack the entire setup with the hammock inside the UQ. I used this compression sack and it seemed to inclose both very well. I would not suggest anything below a 22 L bag for what you are trying to do. If you have any other questions let me know.

    Keep in mind, I am only trying to fit in a 30 degree TQ and a JRB Nest. My hammock is in a pouch on its own. I feel like the 10L bag should be adequate for both quilts. And it shoul fits in the sleeping bag compartment at the bottom of my bag.
