Product Review (submitted on May 31, 2012):
Even though I measured my sleeping bag prior to ordering, it still sticks out of the short bedroll when unrolled. Next time around, I'd get the long size. The full length pad pocket is a smart idea, but with a pad in it, even the thin blue closed cell foam type, the tie straps will not reach all the way around and buckle. Nor would it roll and tie with a fiber fill sleeping bag in the bedroll. It will however buckle with one wool blanket and a rectangular poly bag liner zipped inside the bedroll. And I'm sure a down bag would roll up and tie. While neither of these points is a deal breaker, it does sort of defeat the purpose of having an all inclusive system if you have to put it together in the field. That being said, and I've been putting gear to the test in the field for over 30 years, I am looking forward to owning and using this obviously well made product. Just based on my inspecting this item, I will be ordering one of your packs. Well done.
