- If possible, air out your bag, turned inside out, to further dry it.
- Drape it over your tent or in a dry, sunny place, making sure it is secure from unplanned, wind-aided flight (you can tie it to the tent structure with its drawcord).
- Unroll and move zipper sliders to roughly six inches from the bottom of the zipper.
Starting with the foot of the bag:
- Stuff the sleeping bag into the stuff sack taking care to distribute the bulk as evenly as possible.
- Rotate the stuff sack (about a quarter turn) with each turn, to help with even distribution of the sleeping bag within the stuff sack.
- Stuff the hood/head opening of the bag into the stuff sack last, allowing any air trapped in the bag to escape. Once dry, roll the bag to expel air and precompress the bag.
- If you are going to be traveling in extremely wet conditions, we recommend you use an oversize plastic bag as a liner for the stuff sack.
NEVER: Store your bag in the stuff sack for any extended period of time.
