New Gear From Atop The Mighty Steamer Trunk

The stuff sack for my down bag is dual purpose. For storage you allow it to fluff out into the mesh part so the down doesn't get unduly compacted. For travel, you push it down into the sack part to compress it. I believe an engineer might call this an elegant design. The bag itself is an REI Helios 55 degree which I got on sale and used a discount code to buy. If you buy the long bag in most any brand you normally won't hate yourself. That way you have room to readjust for comfort and wear more clothes or even use a liner in cold weather. If you always buy down bags the extra weight and bulk of the long size won't amount to much.
