  1. 5 Steps For Packing A Sleeping Bag

    Leave a Comment

    Getting a sleeping bag back in to its stuff sack is not rocket science but these five tips should make it easier for you:

    1. Hold the sleeping bag at the foot
    2. Push it right to the bottom of the stuff sack
    3. Carry on pushing the bag into the sack, keeping a tight grip on both and spreading the bag evenly inside. Holding the sack between your feet or knees and having the rest of the bag over your shoulder helps.
    4. When the sleeping bag is fully in the sack, pull the drawstring tight with one hand whilst pushing down hard into the sack with the other.
    5. Pull the compression straps tight

     

    *TOP TIP: As it is not always possible to store sleeping bags as recommended, at least slacken off the compression straps when you get home.
