What do you do ?
Just wondering what everyone else does ?
Do you stuff your sleeping bag straight into a dry bag or
a compression bag then into a dry bag ?
I cant see any difference in packed size of both systems
I use a dry bag with a valve that i bought from Decathlon, you really can compress the hell outta stuff, so much so you have to take care with down gear in it so not to compress it too much.
Beats the hell outta your normal dry bag, imo.

I wouldn't dream of stuffing any down bag into a compression sack - dya wanna kill it? They pack up so small anyway it's not needed.
I only use down and they go into their own stuff sacs, which go with other stuff I want to keep dry in a drybag which takes much of my gear, the tent, cooking gear, food etc going outside and above this.
Yeah i know that mate but as i said, it's it's greatest virtue imo, so why not utilise it.
Pack the hell outta mine and i've seen no drop off in loft.
Compression stuffsac & then in the drybag rucsac liner, regular stuffsac & in the liner or no stuffsac straight into the liner - 3 methods I use depending on the rucsac - sleeping bag combo I'm using & how much space I've got with the rest of the gear. I like the rucsac to be full so if that means packing things more loosely I do that.
The one thing I wouldn't do is what Bedders does, even with a waterproof sac.

Into the compression sack that came with the bag then into a waterproof backpack hence no need to faff with a dry bag.
I know its late but I'm having problems identifying the difference here! Is there a problem with the manufacturers compression sacks or are you saying that you'd use a dry bag inside a waterproof pack?
I'd use a waterpoof liner or drybag in a waterproof pack
In the supplied stuff sack, if it's a compression sac, I don't compress.
Then into a drybag, weather rucksack is waterproof? or I use a liner.
