The Exped Shrink Bag allows you to free up space in your pack by reducing the packed size of bulky items like your sleeping bag or extra winter layers as well as keep your gear dry in any weather. A wide mouth, stand up stuff sack design with quick air purge flat valve on the side of the Shrink bag allows air to be easily purged from the bag as you compress it. An easy to pull Quickstrap allows easy opening of the roll top closure and the roll-top, dry bag design means your clothing and gear will stay dry even in a heavy downpour.
The Exped Shrink bag can be combined with the Exped Schnozzel to quickly inflate Exped much like the AirMat UL 7.5, all Exped SIM mats and SynMat models without integrated pumps.
Accounting for various sized sleeping bags and equipment, the Exped Shrink Bag is available in three sizes. The 20 Liters (yellow) has dimensions of 14" x 16" x 10" and a cubic inch volume of 1340. The dimensions of the 40 Liters size (terracotta) are 18" x 16" x 10" (2560 cubic inches) and the 80 Liters size (blue) measures 31" x 16" x 10" (5797 cubic inches).

Real Customer Reviews
- Best stuff sack ever!
Likes: I use this as a stuff sack for my Sierra Designs Backcountry bed sleeping bag. My bag did not come with a compression sack so I picked this up. I, able t squeeze so much air it if it and compress my sack better than any I have ever owned. Highly recommend it!
- Perfect bag for tent
Likes: Waterproof and allows for all air to be removed.
Likes: Fast way to pack soft, bulky items. Waterproof, durable and simple. Excellent product.
Dislikes: Not the lightest waterproof bag but I am very satisfied with this purchase.
Likes: Reliable, versatile, more economic than other dry compression bags
Dislikes: Nothing about this has dissatisfied me yet
Likes: I bought the 40L bag to keep my clothes dry while compacting them. So far I have taken it on several trips up and down the Appalachian trail and it still holds up without a problem. I'm able to fit several days worth of clothes, my jacket and a fleece sleeping bag in it and compress it down enough to fit in the bottom pocket of my bag with no problem. I have walked over a hundred miles with it, including in the rain and my clothes haven't gotten wet a single time.In addition it is lightweight.
As a bonus I found myself leaving my pillow at home and using this to save weight. by throwing a pillowcase over the bag and letting a bit of air in it I found it to be very comfortable.
Dislikes: while it does not bother me personally, I will point out that it is not a hundred percent air tight. After sitting for a day it will start to re-inflate slightly, but as long as you keep it in a backpack it isn't going to cause any problems.
Likes: Purchased this as a compressing sack for my sleeping bag, but mainly to inflate my Big Agnes Q-Core air mattress. It quickly inflates my mattress in about 6-7 fills.
Likes: The top of the sack is very wide which makes it extremely easy to stuff my 30 degree Marmot down sleeping bag in which is what I purchased the product for initially. The 20 liter bag should give me plenty of room to stuff a couple of pairs of clothes in as well as the sleeping bag which was a surprise. Since my sleeping bag is down the waterproof bag was very important to me but I have yet to submerge the bag to test how waterproof the sack really is. The sack is warrantied for 5 years by the manufacturer. It was very easy to remove the air out of the sack by just kneeling on the bag and allowing your own weight do all of the work. The sack should fit great in the bottom of my pack.
Dislikes: Nothing yet!!!
Likes: Great bag. What more can I say.
Likes: Good quality waterproof stuff bag, and the valve is very convenient and well-designed.
Dislikes: Kind of a high-end item price wise, but if you have a few extra bucks to spare it's a good piece.
Likes: I have three Exped products which is my first experience with this brand and I will tell you that I am impressed with all of them in regards to their quality of construction. I love these bags and they work great and are a lot easier to stuff than a compression sack.
Dislikes: Expensive but worth it.
