Who makes one? I'm looking at stuffing a GoLite Quilt into it.

I prefer roll top bags to compression sacks. They seem to last longer plus you can't beat putting your sleeping bag or quilt in something water-resistant.

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Dry Bag. 8L should do the trick. Roll once, leave the roll loose so air can escape, kneel on the bag. Your body weight will get it as small as any compression bag. Roll a few more times. Cool thing is you then get a "kneadable" package, instead of a hard ball that wastes packing space.

I like the dry sacks with eVent on the bottom. Granite Gear makes the lightest called eVent Sil Drysacks. You roll it once or twice, push down and the air escapes through the eVent, almost creating a vacuum in the bag, then roll it once or twice more and clip. Lighter than a compression bag and does the same thing.

You might want to look at the JRB compression sack...Lightest available at 1.2 oz size reg, will handle that quilt/bag.
