Joule 21 Sleeping Bag Compression


Is the women’s Joule 21 sleeping bag able to stuff down into a sea to summit compression bag to make it smaller for over night backpacking? If so can you please recommend an appropriate sized compression bag for it?

Hello there @Stirliab!

A good rule of thumb is to get a compression bag that is the same dimensions as the stuff sack that comes with your sleeping bag.  While you could probably go a little smaller than this, if you match the size of the stuff sack, you will have a lot easier of a time getting your bag in and can then cinch it down pretty small from there!

In the case of the Joule, it comes with a stuff sack that is 8"x18"  This would translate into a 14L compression sack from Sea to Summit.

Hope this helps!
