I ordered a medium size ALPS and also a medium size Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Compression Sack (http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0018DNEVA).
The Sea to Summit bag was about a perfect fit with no room to spare. The sack is about 70% lighter then the ALPS, water resistant and compressed down smaller.
The ALPS sack is very well constructed, includes more frills like d-rings, carry handle and a small pocket (with questionable functionality). The sack is larger then the Sea to Summit and it may have been possible to get the Marmot bag into a size small.
Given the size and weight difference I went with the Sea to Summit sack.
I've tried many bags, straps, and compression bags over the years, and with yet another camping excursion on the horizon, I thought I would again try to search out a a better storage solution, and after reading reviews, ended up purchasing the ALPS Mountaineering Compression Sleeping Bag Stuff Sack in Extra Large: XL, 12" x 25", XL Winter Sleeping Bags. On the plus side: it's better than what I was using previously, but not by much.
The set came with the compression sack itself as well as a small black mesh bag for storing the empty compression sack, which was handy. Probably the best aspect of this particular sack is how well it is made. The fabric is nylon ripstop and it held up to a lot of pushing, pulling, and abuse without giving way. The seams are also double-stitched with bar-tacked stress points, and one end has a handle with D-rings, while the other has a small zippered pocket and D-rings.
When you receive the sack, you'll notice that you have what basically looks like a regular compression sack that has been sewn into a flap attached to four cinch straps that end in another flap to cover the reverse end. In short order, what you're supposed to do is to stuff your sleeping bag in the inner compartment, cinch it closed, and then stretch the four cinch straps over the other end and tighten them to form a compressed sack. In practice, however, this did not go easily for me, which I completely blame on the fact that I have an absolutely ginormous sleeping bag. It took me almost 25 minutes of non-stop frustration to finally get the bag completely stuffed into the sack, but after that point, things went very smoothly and I was able to tighten it off without any problem.
The resulting pack was very nice and compact, and I liked that the actual sleeping bag itself felt fully-protected and portable.
All-in-all, even with the frustrations I experienced, I really can't fault the bag itself, and am actually planning to order a smaller version of the same bag to put my pillow and some of the attachments for my sleeping bag in, because I figure it's better using two bags to fit everything in than continuing to struggle each time I go to pack mine up all at once. ;) So as long as you have a more reasonably-sized sleeping bag, I would definitely highly recommend this sack. While my package didn't come with any sizing suggestions, here is what another reviewer said their had listed:
- Small, 7" x 16", Clothes, lightweight bag
- Medium, 9" x 20", Compact 20 Degree bag
- Large, 11" x 23", Most Mummy Bags
- XL, 12" x 25", XL Winter Sleeping Bags

* Compression Sack
* Small Black Storage Sack.
Compression Sack Weight on my scale:
* Small: 5.6oz
* Medium: 7.1oz
I first purchased the medium size with the hopes that it would fit a USGI Intermediate Sleeping Bag. It did the job just fine and I was so impressed I bought myself 2 small sizes to use on my USGI Green Patrol Bag. I want another Medium Compression sack for my additional Intermediate bag but they are not available at the moment. Both bags come with a small breathable storage sack to store the sacks when not in use. The sacks also each contain a zippered pocket on one end of the sack. I will most likely use it for the storage sack so it doesnt get lost when not in use. They appear to be made and stitched with quality materials. Buckles are great for a quick release as well.
I would highly recommend these sacks if your bag does not already have one. I dont see why you cant also use these to compress clothing or other soft compressible items. They are not waterproof but I believe the fabric is water resistant. Nothing a backpack liner wont cure.
Medium Size Notes
The Black Intermediate Sleeping Bag fits perfectly into the medium compression sack. No issues here.
Small Size Notes
While filling the Green Patrol Bag into the size small it almost feels like it wont fit, but it actually fits in there just perfect. Then it compresses even more. My images show one Patrol bag compressed and another Patrol bag uncompressed in the small sack. I tried to fit the Black Intermediate Bag into the small compression sack but it will not fit. The Green Patrol bag can be compressed further, however, the buckles of the compression sack will not allow it because they run out of room. Other than that its perfect for it.
I hope this review helps!
