Product Highlights

The Kelty Compression Stuff Sack allows you to free up space in your pack by reducing the packed size of your sleeping bag. Integrated compression straps cinch down to tight to reduce the volume of your bag. When not in use, the Compression Stuff Sack folds inside itself for compact storage.

Accounting for the wide variety of sleeping bags, the Kelty Compression Stuff Sack comes in four different sizes. The S size (Curry) compresses sleeping bags from 6" x 12" down to 6" x 9". The M size (Rhubarb) compresses sleeping bags from 8" x 15" down to 8" x 10". The L size (Juniper) compresses sleeping bags from 10" x 18" down to 10" x 10". The XL size (Deep Blue) compresses sleeping bags from 11" x 22" down to 11" x 10".

Sizes available: L, M, S, XL

Kelty part numbers: 39008782, 39008781, 39008780, 39008783

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Dislikes: A little pricey

  • Carl P. Montgomery NY

    Likes: Strong, well made stuff sack. Cinches up tight. Packs up small and lightweight. Different colors for different size sacks keeps gear organized and easy to recognize in my pack.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Great size and it comes in its own sack to keep it contained that will fit within the air bag for my sleeping bags.

    Dislikes: So far, nothing yet.

  • . Duluth GA

    Likes: Lightweight, I like how it can pack into itself.

    Dislikes: Hope the stitching holds up

  • Stephen P. Myersville MD

    Likes: sleeping bag fits nice and snug , great compression . I'll be getting a few more of these

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Amanda B. Poughkeepsie NY

    Likes: I like the style of the straps and the fabric. And I love that it stores in it's own pouch. It make sit easier to store and to pack in case I need an extra. I have the medium and my Marmot Women's Helium 15 fits in it quite well.

    Dislikes: I have already busted a seam while being a little too rough on a strap. One of the straps with the buckles came off the pouch. I can still use the sack for compression using some heavy duty safety pins (I'll get around to sewing it some day). So, you need to be a little gentle when compressing it.

  • . Union City PA PA

    Likes: seems sturdy enough, decent design.

    Dislikes: looks and feels like you could shred the stitching on this pretty easy is you got too aggressive with the compression straps. But no problems so far. They need more info on picking a size. I got a medium(green)and my 0 degree mummy bag barely fits. Prob need a large.

  • Anna M. Banner Elk NC

    Likes: Great compression sack! Easy to use strap system makes it easy to compress down to smaller size. My North Face 20 degree bag compressed to nearly 1/2 of its usual stuff sack size. Light weight, and the green isn't too bright. Great Price!

    Dislikes: The lid on the compression sack is not quite wide enough. This makes it a little harder to use than my Event Compressions sack (which I love!) This one is also $30 cheaper than my eVent was, so it was worth a little extra work!

  • . Des Plaines IL

    Likes: The price was unbeatable, and I trust the manufacturer.

    Dislikes: Nothing.

  • Andrew K. Blue Ash OH

    Likes: Loved these compression bags I have one for my sleeping bag and one for my cloths. They work just great to keep all my things organized.

    Dislikes: N/A

  • Phillip W. South Elgin IL

    Likes: Unlike other compression sacks, Kelty's design keeps the cinch staps from getting tangled or twisted. Love that the sack can be converted into it's own stuff sack for easy storage.

    Dislikes: N/A

  • Chris M. Roswell GA

    Likes: A must for back packing to save space. We have three for extended night hikes. This sack works great on my REI Lumina making it 1/2 the size of the sack it came with. Best price of all comp sacks I shopped. Very well made. All direction compression. Practically no weight add from this comp sak

    Dislikes: No dislike

  • . Orlando FL

    Likes: Large, roomy, but VERY compressible. Straps are positioned to get good leverage to compress. Just hard to gauge which size is needed for various items.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • . Columbia SC

    Likes: Quality product. Works great to store clothes in my pack.

    Dislikes: Nothing yet!

  • Adam M. Gallatin TN

    Likes: Excellent compression sack and great price! I used it to compress my down sleeping bag and was able to gain at least 3 inches of space in my backpack. I will probably purchase a smaller one for my clothes.

    Dislikes: Nothing!!

  • Justin M. Chalfont PA

    Likes: Great stuff sack, bought it to replace the one that came with my sleeping back and broke after a year or two, much more sturdy.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: The product works as expected and I have had no problems with it.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Jack A. Orondo WA

    Likes: Ease of initial stuffing is best of any compression sack I own. I specifically like the draw string arrangement with the string exiting the sack neck via a metal grommet. Two of the compression straps have quick release buckles which makes releasing the compressed item much easier.

    Dislikes: Compression straps are sewn directly to nylon shell material. Not the strongest construction technique.

    Dislikes: Light weight construction

  • Dylan G. Costa Mesa CA

    Likes: It works just like it should, compresses my sleeping bag down just as it is intended. High quality material, doesn't seem cheap or like it's going to break.

    Dislikes: I ordered the largest size, and its much too large for my REI Zephyr sleeping bag. I would have purchased a smaller size.

  • Phillip W. South Elgin IL

    Likes: Able to compress an extra large zero degree sleeping bag with dimensions of 22" x 12" to less than half the size. Very well made & high quality!

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Lane G. Westminster CO

    Likes: Love the sack. Really really useful. I have one for my sleeping back and 2 for both my tent and tent fly. Using these sacks I can fit my sleeping back and tent into my sleeping bag compartment on my pack.

    Dislikes: not very forgiving. If your sack it too small for what you want to put in it then you're SOL.

  • Lane G. Westminster CO

    Likes: bought this for my sleeping bag. Works great.

    Dislikes: I would recommend over estimating though on size. If you think you sleeping bag needs to go in a Small compression Sack then get a medium. They really have no give at all and if she sack is too small then it's next to impossible to get use out of it.

  • David G. Syracuse NY

    Likes: Does what is says, strong

    Dislikes: nothing

    Dislikes: nothing

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: My compression bag came with a regular cinch-sack case, this helped compress it another 5-6" making more room in my backpack for other items.

    Dislikes: Nothing to dislike about this.


    Likes: I liked the durability of the product. I am going to buy another one.

    Dislikes: Weight is a slight issue.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Compressed my down sleeping bag down to fit better in my pack's bottom compartment. Excellent quality and easy to use.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Michael D. G. Phoenix, AZ

    Likes: Bought a new tent and it came in a taquito bag,which even put together neatly tends to be all over the place.So,the Kelty Compression Stuff sack fits the bill and keep everything in nice tight package.

    Dislikes: Really wanted a green colored sack but maroon will do.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: The 2 clips on the compression straps make keeping the top from getting tangled much easier than on other bags that I have seen.

    Dislikes: I returned the product because the bag I purchased was much bigger than I needed. As far as I can tell, it was well made.

  • Jason F. Chandler AZ

    Likes: My son's standard size Kelty CD20 sleeping bag stuffs into this sack down to the size of a volleyball. I think we can fit the sleeping bag and 2 man tent without poles into it, but haven't tried that yet. Used it several times now. It works very well and seems very sturdy. It is the M size.

    Dislikes: No complaints.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Definitely compressed my bag down quite a bit, I was impressed. The space you can save with this in your pack is well worth it if your backpacking, otherwise it may not be necessary.

    Dislikes: It was a bit of a struggle and slightly more time consuming then I'd like. I feel a bit like ive stuffed one of those toy springy snakes into a can and its going to burst out when I open it.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: This is a great product, very reasonably priced and sturdy. You can't have too many compression sacks to keep things under control in your pack. I use them for clothes as well as for my sleeping bag.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Patrick K. Independence KY

    Likes: Quality product. Turns a bulky sleeping bag into a small easy to pack item!

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Great price for a this compression sack. Durable and nice colors. Bought two.

    Dislikes: Not a thing.

  • Brad R. Lexington KY

    Likes: Great stuff sacks. Light weight, extremely useful, and durable. I use mine to compress down my clothes to save room in my pack. Really helps on my back country fly fishing trip when I have to have 2 sets of clothes (1 to wear while the other is drying off) from wet wading, or in colder weather when you need to pack the fleece for around camp at night. Fleece is light, but bulky, the compression sacks really help decrease the bulk.

    Dislikes: nothing!!

  • Roseanne P. Nassau NY

    Likes: The Kelty does the job, brings my pack down to a much more manageable size easily.

    Dislikes: There isn't anything I don't like about the product; however, it would have been helpful if there was included a recommendation for what size bag works best with each size compression sack. I had to guess - and fortunately got it right.

  • Don H. Birmingham AL

    Likes: Grest stuff sack and works well with my new Kelty down sleeping bag. Easy to use and better than sleeping bag provided stuff sack.

    Dislikes: Nothing...recomended

  • Jeff P. Conifer CO

    Likes: Kelty compression sacks are the best! They easily handle my new Kelty Down bag, and I was pleasantly surprised how small that it could compress! It easily packs itself into it's own little bag. Great product!

    Dislikes: What's not to like?

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: This product takes my sleeping bag from the 15in it usually is and condenses it down to 11in. The quality seems good and It does a good job.

    Dislikes: None

  • Roseanne P. Nassau NY

    Likes: Great stuff sack - folds tightly into its own bag, has strong clip to store it safely, and straps are strong and easy to use. Really compresses the bag down into a small brick.

    Dislikes: Nothing, so far.

  • John B. Conyers GA

    Likes: Very easy to use and very durable. Also, conveniently stuffs into own storage pouch for easy storage.

    Dislikes: Thus far, there is nothing negative to comment on.

  • Glenn M. Sacramento CA

    Likes: Good compression sack love how the top strap stays into place when open. you never have to search for the straps to find which one goes where, and it compresses down great just like it should. I'll buy more when needed no doubt. The price is to good to pass up.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Shawn F. Apple Valley CA

    Likes: It did what It was supposed to.

    Dislikes: Broke after second use, seems to be the result of low quality stitching.

  • Jacob S. Portland OR

    Likes: Very easy to compress and seems very sturdy. Not waterproof, but water resistant. The sizing is a little of the big side. My Kelty cosmic down 20 degree bag (regular size) fits well, but I have to pull up a bit of slack before it starts compressing. Over all a great bag!

    Dislikes: a little too roomy.

  • brian b. kutztown PA

    Likes: I was able to fit a super king size sleeping bag, 39" x 81" in it. It compresses the sleeping bag very well.

    Dislikes: Nothing so far.

  • Robert M G. Birmingham AL

    Likes: I bought this with my larger winter sleeping bag in mind which it fits very well and compresses down to a size that fits in the lower sleeping bag compartment in my Kelty Red Cloud 6650 fine. Now that it is summer I use it to pack my clothes in. It works great for both. The sack fits into the top pocket and stows away easily. Standard Kelty quality, sturdy, strong, well made.

    Dislikes: none

  • Louis T. Bayside Hills NY

    Likes: Strong, priced right. Kelty quality.

    Dislikes: Can't really complain about anything important.

  • Louis T. Bayside Hills NY

    Likes: Price, Value, Strong construction. You cannot go wrong with these compression sacks properly sized to your sleeping bag.

  • Douglas R. Tallahassee FL

    Likes: It is very well made stuff sack. It compresses sleeping bags down to packable size easily.

    Dislikes: The straps slide out the buckle to easily, and is difficult to re thread, when one is in the middle of stuffing a bag.
