    Dry bag size for tq and uq

    I am in the market for a dry bag to fit my tq and uq down goodies and was wondering what a safe size is.

    I'm thinking of going with lukesultralight cuben dry bagbut need to know what size to get. Thanks.

    At one point I had two 6-liter stuff sacks for my top quilt and underquilt, So I'd imagine somewhere around 12 liters to start, YMMV

    Also consider the trash compactor bag. I find it is very effective.

    I'd say 10-15 liters is probably a good range, depending on the size/rating of your TQ/UQ. A 40* setup with a partial length UQ will pack a good bit smaller than a 20* or 0* setup with a full length UQ and extra long/wide TQ.

    Been using Sea to Summit Event Dry bags. 20L for winter and 14L for the rest of the time. I usually put my hammock in with my quilts as well. Really like these dry bags. I had cuben ones but they didn't last much more than a season before bursting.

    +1 on Sea to Summit Bags I use a small one for clothes

    I use a heavier one that I have had for a little while though for TQ UQ and Hammock I do not know who nakes it.

    I need to buy a sea to summit that would fit Hammock, TQ and UQ along with my clothes bag
