    Sierratradingpost is your friend. My backpacking sleeping bag is a marmot 650 fill 20 degree down bag. My tent is an Easton rimrock 1p.

    We've used the Sea to Summit Ultra Sil Compression Sacks on multiple trips a year for over 10 years and haven't been able to break them yet. They are also among the lightest compression sacks we've found. I don't have any recent experience with the mil sleep system, but I remember it being somewhat bulky compared to commercial bags. So I'd recommend getting a large size (20 liters) if you decide to go with one.

    For my summer ruck at work, I keep the green bag in an OR Airpurge Compression Sack. In the winter I swap out to a Marmot down 0 degree bag.

    Tortuga, how small does it get?
    When you're done saying what you're saying, stop saying it.
