I was wondering if there is a bag or quilt that compresses more than the others?
Or is the compression size just a function of the amount of down?
What is the smallest volume for a 40degF bag? I saw on one site that the Marmot Plasma 40 packs down to 7"x7" (but this size was not substantiated on a different site). So first, what does it mean when a volume is represented by just 2 parameters? Can we assume the third parameter is necessarily less than or equal to either of the two specified values? I have a Plasma 15 now, and love it. If the plasma 40 really packs that small (7x7), then I'd grab it in a second. Anyone have this bag in particular and can verify the pack size?
Do quilts pack down smaller than bags?
Also, I have the same question for my tent setup. I have a UL Fly Creek II right now, but am thinking of a z-packs hexamid or similar, but only if I can get the pack size down considerable from the Fly creek.
Basically, I want to get the size of these two items down so I can get a smaller pack as well (right now, have the z-packs arc-blast which I love but it is large).
