    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.

    OR makes them in two sizes, 15L and 35L. Mine is the now discontinued 25L.

    It's not so much how small the bag gets as how much will your bag compress. My 25L will get micro sized with a down 20 degree bag.
