Comments about Kelty Kelty Compression Stuff Sack For Sleeping Bag:

these were good, durable compression sacks. they save a LOT of room in your pack. but if you want to put a sleeping bag in one you need to get at least a medium size. the small was too small to fit my kelty bag in. my tent and rainfly fit in the small size pretty well though.

Comments about Kelty Kelty Compression Stuff Sack For Sleeping Bag:

I'm going to keep this review short and to the point.I tested a few different sizes of these one weekend while testing a variety of some of my other, more recent purchases. See my reviews on the Eureka Grand Manan 9, Eureka Mountain Pass 3XTE, GoLite Odyssey Internal Pack, tent stakes from The North Face, and Slumberjack Latitude 20F sleeping bag also.Well, one of the straps on the Large, 10x18 sack broke or tore where it was sewn or otherwise attached onto one of the end caps. This is the only use this compression sack has ever seen. I'm pretty sure that's what I was keeping my Slumberjack Latitude 20F sleeping bag in. I stuffed it in, I took it out for the weekend, I stuffed it back in, the strap broke.I also brought my Slumberjack Latitude 0F sleeping bag just in case. But, the X-Large, 11x22 sack I put it in and took it out of and put it back in (same scenario of useage as for the Large, 10x18 sack), well, it did just fine. As did the other sizes in which I stuffed my tents. So, it could be an isolated incident. I don't know. But, to have failed with such minimal use is still not a very good way to start off any relationship. Uh huh... :0\I realize the cost of Granite Gear's Round Rock Solid compression sacks is roughly twice as much. [...] I have a few of the aforementioned Granite Gear sacks, and after the strap on the Kelty sack broke, I compared the construction of the two brands. And, I just think the construction of the Granite Gear sacks is more heavy duty and suited for more serious abuse.I still like the Kelty sacks. And, I'll continue to use the ones that I have. But, I won't push them as far during my future outtings. Maybe I was expecting too much. Or, maybe it was an isolated incident of a fault. Just don't put too much in these things, if you decide to get them. I'm only going to recommend them for light use.Did I say I was going to keep this review short? Right.....

Great product. Used it to pack my clothes on my last canoe/camping trip and it was a great way to have things in the right place inside the backpack. It is now my way of packing cloth items.
10x18 is great for your clothes, 8x15 is great for sleeping bags.
