I'm 99.99% certain, yes, will not damage tent (not talking about the poles of course)

consider just stuffing tent & sleeping bags (if tent is dry), into the bottom of pack, which then fills up all the 'nooks and crannies'.

a compression sack, becomes a 'bowling ball' in your pack, and it's tough to use the 'wasted space'.

good luck
