    Wth the new sleeping bag I had to buy I got a new compression sack which is a new style that packs oblong instead of squishing down a tube. It packs more nicely in my duffel. My tent-has the same style compression sack. Packing is improving.

    I'd be interested to find something like that. The big ball of a bag mine compresses to is a bit odd to pack.

    I like that. What size would you recommend for a sleeping bag - I'm thinking at least 20L (and that has 3 straps instead of 2, according to someone on Amazon).

    Hmm. Mine is a smaller one. 6 or 8 liters. I like cos of the shape, but it isn't going to compress like the cylindrical ones. It's just a different animal and not meant to compress as much. Keep that in mind. You might need to buy one and try it planning to return if needed. Sorry I can't be more help.

    Who makes that little folding table that turns two panniers into a larger table?

    I'm thinking I can get one manufactured somehow, but it won't be a light. Would be pretty sweet to keep things off the ground and have a good working surface for cooking, etc.

    I have the same table. took it to a local seamstress and had her make a cordura bag for it with loops, so I can strap it down to the top of a pannier. Damn bag coats more than the table....lol.

    That is kinda where I'm at. I want a new small bag, but I love my big old bag too much. It is a surplus German flektar bag. Love that thing, had it since highschool and just can't part with it.
