    I am doing without the compression bag. Putting my UQ inside of my Down sleeping bag and putting those in a Compactor bag in side of the pack. Clothing will go into the Compactor Bag also. Then pack the rest of everything else on top. Thinking that will take up less room and spread out the weight evenly more than having a tight ball in one area of the pack. Using a Gossamer G4 so I have plenty of room for everything I have.

    I put my down TQ and UQ into the compactor bag and sat on it until it was a size to fit into where I wanted to put it in my pack. the twisted the end to keep it that size.

    For packing, I find it handy to have my quilts in a bag that is a little big. The packing of the gear is what compresses the quilts. This allows them to shift a little and fill space in the pack when loading it up.

    I pack my complete hammock, TQ, UQ, under quilt protector, and bug net/or sock ready to hang into a 30L Granite Gear compression sack. I keep the straps separate in snake skins outside the pack. Hook up one end of the suspension and walk to the other. Comes out ready to nap in. Fits well into my Granite Gear 60L Crown pack. Room for the rest of my gear too.

    I'm a short guy, 5'6".
    70" long 20F Phoenix + "short" 30F Revelation X go into a Sea to Summit 15L eVent compression sack.
    Once compressed for travel, the bag gets to 8.5" at 12" length. A bit above 11L.
    Both quilts get back to their original loft within 15 minutes after debagging.

    I've done my wbrr and lynx uq that way several times. Works good, easy fast set up. Only draw back I can see is some times the whole thing gets twisted up in the stuff sack---kind of a PITA to get all lined up again.

    If you're into DIY:

    I'm not sure if your gear came with bags, so here's a great video on how to make the bag. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVljDzbSbFw

    For compressing it, I went to BWDD and bought some 3/4" nylon webbing and 4 tension locks. Cut the webbing into 4 pieces. Sew the tension locks onto both ends of two of the strips of webbing. Sew the centers of those same two pieces of webbing together. They need to be perpendicular, so the form a cross. Sew the centers of the webbing together with no tension locks in the same way.

    You should now have two separate crosses.
    Cross 1: with tension locks on all ends
    Cross 2: with no tension locks

    Thread each of the four ends of "cross 2" through the tension locks on "cross 1". Then, place stuff sack into the compression system and pull each of the ends of "cross 1" to tighten/compress the sack.

    If you're interested and the above slurry of words didn't make sense, let me now, and I'll take some pics.

    I recently converted to down-insulated under- and top-quilts in order to save pack space. My three-season UQ and TQ now both fit in the same Sea to Summit e-Vent dry compression sack, size medium, that used to hold only my synthetic-insulated UQ. Yahoo! (BTW, both my TQ and UQ are "long" versions.)

    The medium e-Vent sack's specs are: size: 8” x 18” / 20 x 46cm; weight: 5.2 oz/148g; Max/Min volume: 14/4.5 Liter.

    Take it easy,
