I've had the medium / green Alps stuff sack about 6 months now. I backpack almost every weekend. When backpacking, I can easily fit my 0 Degree synthetic sleeping bag, fleece liner, compression pillow & when anticipating an exceptionally cold night, a fleece turtleneck & heavy socks. It could easily handle more but it's a matter of getting all that into the sleeping bag pocket in my backpack. When going on multi-night trips, I use Spacebags for clothes, gloves, etc because I can see thru. I carry a superbig spacebag in my pack in case my compression bag fails (i also use it as my "bear bag" with food etc when in bear territory...)

I like the zippered section on top - I put my ear plugs, lip balm & an extra small flashlight in it - those little things easily lost.

I am looking around for a 2nd compression bag for my ultralight tent and noticed a lot of people complaining about compression bags failing the first time they used it. A hint... pull a little bit on each strap, keep working your way around it. When getting to the "last time around", a technique I learned is to put top against the edge of something, like a picnic table, put your body against other end, push in and gently pull each of the straps. And be realistic - you are not going to get a sleeping bag compressed into the size of a marshmallow.

The bag works as advertised. It looked a bit small when compared to my sleeping bag but I did manage to cram it in the sack. The bag has 3 compression straps that go around the circumference of the sack and only one strap to compress the bag lengthwise.
I found that my bag could compress more lengthwise than the sack will allow due to the design of the strap. I can crush the bag down another 4 or 5 inches, but the compression strap will not allow me to cinch it up that far. Thus the compressed bag is slightly too long to fit easily into my pack. I have to really work to get it in there.
I think the product would be improved if I could cinch it down further lengthwise and if I had at least 2 lengthwise straps instead of just one.

I love ALPS camping products, and this stuff sack is no exception! The intelligent thing about the ALPS design is that you end up with a shape that fits into your pack. No bowling ball in your pack with this stuff sack! On sizing... I purchased a Medium to hold my Kelty Cosmic 0 degree synthetic bag, and it is a super-tight fit (but it works!). I ordered a large for my husband's sleeping bag and it is a better size for a synthetic 0 degree bag. We have a couple tents from ALPS, along with various pieces of smaller gear, and I have to say, they make quality camping gear. I'd put my ALPS tent against some of those pricier bigger names any day. If you're looking for a quality product that will perform well for your outdoor adventures, give anything by ALPS a try!

UPDATE: There have been quite a few questions around the sizing of this bag. This photo is from the packaging that came with my ALPS Mountaineering Cyclone Stuff Sack.

I have a small car but enjoy car camping. These bags make it easy to bring my sleeping bag, other bedding, and clothes and they take up a lot less space in the car leaving room for my other hard camping gear. They compress well and I really like the straps that go around the bag. I tightened all straps a little and then kept going around slowly pulling each one tighter. Great bag. The large will fit a couple pillows and a blanket easily and then compresses down very well. It compresses the width more than the length.

I order several of the extra large stuff sacks for keeping blankets and sleeping bags in our camper. The bags have worked great so far. They are heavy duty and all of the seems are tight. I do wish that the bags would compress length wise a bit more; the cover for the end of the bag extends part way down the side which limits how far it can be compressed in length. The extra large bag fits two double bed size blankets easily so a large would be better for a single sleeping bag or single blanket. I'm really pleased with this product.

Just got this and it seems to be a well built compression bag. I was a bit tickled that the stuff sack came packaged in it's own stuff sack though - LOL! I'm sure I'll find a use for the small mesh stuff sack somewhere.

Didn't really order this for it's compression features though. I'd bought from Amazon a Coleman White Water sleeping bag (which is a dynamite sleeping bag BTW) which didn't come with a stuff sack. This sleeping bag is a beast when it's rolled up, and it doesn't help that the "system" to "secure" the rolled up bag isn't very secure. The bag just won't stay tightly rolled up. Another reviewer of the sleeping bag voiced the same complaints and said he'd purchased this stuff sack (XLarge) for his. Since I couldn't find any compression straps large enough locally to wrap around the sleeping bag, I decided this was a no-brainer. The sleeping bag fit, but it was a tight fit. Don't really care about the compression since this is a car camping sleeping bag and I won't have to hump further than from the trunk to the tent, but it's nice to have a neat package for that.

So, bottom line, I'm giving this a 5 star rating because it meets my needs. As I said, from appearances, this compression sack is well built, should provide a lot of protection to whatever you cram into it and last for some time. My backpacking days are pretty much over (unless my son crosses over from Cub to Boy Scouts - and God help this 56 year old, out of shape body if he does), but part of me wonders just what the heck you kids are humping these days that requires a compression sack this big. ;-)
