the forecast for an upcoming trip is telling me it's time for the 3 season down bag. it's a Marmot Sawtooth and weighs an unmodest 3 pounds. previously i got burned by not having it in a waterproof stuff sack when the sky's rained down, so i bought a waterproof compression stuff sack for it.
so lo and behold after i have been using the waterproof compression stuff sack, i read that it's better to not use a compression bag in favor of a stuff sack that allows the sleeping bag to conform to the sleeping bag compartment of the pack.
when i use the compression stuff sack, the bag just fits into the pack and doesn't leave room for anything else, like my sleeping pad or pillow. what route do you take when packing your bag?
