Marmot Atom owners - Stuff sack question...please step in on 04/09/2007 08:03:53 MDT Print View

Just a quick question. I recently picked up an Atom and I love it. Just curious what kind of stuff/compression sack you all use for it? I'd obviously like something lightweight (ya) and waterproof. Any ideas?

Thanks so much!

The basic REI 7x15 silnylon sack will hold my Hydrogen snugly, so it should be a good fit for your Atom. Only $9 and 0.7oz.

The Sea To Summit Ultra-Sil Medium Dry Sack - 11 x 18 (6.5 inch diameter) works well for my Hydrogen. And the 1.1 ounces isn't too bad for the better waterproofing of siliconized Cordura. REI has 'em - just search for Sea to Summit.

Casey, I do not own a Marmot Atom, but I recommend SealLine Stormsacks for your bag. My SeaToSummit silnylon bag leaked terribly. Anyone who owns one should try this test; its an eye opener. Details here:
