When purchasing a stuff sack, keep in mind the following price, weight, durability, and compression variables.
- In general, you’ll want the lightest weight stuff sack in the size required.
- You’re unlikely to need a compression sack unless you need to compress a synthetic sleeping bag. Compression sacks are much heavier than regular roll top or drawstring stuff sacks and should be avoided unless necessary.
- Make sure the stuff sack you choose has taped seams because it will be more waterproof.
- Don’t overlook draw string style stuff sacks.They’re good because the let air escape when stuffed.
