Great sleeping bag storage sack

We all have sleeping bags. Some come with adequate non-stuff sack storage sacks. It is important to store bags loosely the majority of the time. I've been using big plastic trash bags for my Teton Sports Celsius bags. Finding a bag that was stronger than the trash bag method was something I've been looking at for a while. Took a chance on this laundry bag on amazon and we have a winner!

For $6 bucks you can't go wrong. Hope this helps others who have been looking for a good way to store bags while not camping.

There is a video on YouTube that shows you how to put your Teton sleeping bag back into the compression sack....I watched it and had very little trouble getting it back in the sack....good luck!

I've got no problem putting in the stuff sack when needed. For normal storage when the compression/stuff sack is not needed it is best to store your bags uncompressed to maintain loft. That is what the loose laundry bags do.

Always best to store sleeping bags in large 100% cotton bags to allow them to "breath": https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DROJGU/ref=pd_bxgy_201_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=G5QQAY1GRVRFGYSS31Q9&th=1

Nylon can trap moisture and humidity.
I use a cotton storage bag. But a mouse once chewed a dozen holes in it. Maybe they like cotton. Thank God he didn't damage the down sleeping bag. Ideally I think a down sleeping bag should be stored in a rodent-proof plastic container.
