    when i go touring, i usually roll everything up together in a similar fasion, then put them in a trash bag and use loose straps to compress them, bungees to attatch them to the rack. this looks alot cleaner and easier.

    Thanks - the goal was to do away with the rack and have an easily deployable & packable setup. My sleeping setup here is on the bulky side, the down bag is a long etc, so I think its on the higher end of size. If you have a Darkstar however all bets are off... you'd need it to be quite hourglass shaped or longer to clear the front tire. Those things are monsterous.

    The Sleeping Bag Sausage

    Another version I just finished, this one is more Sausage like - hence the name..
    Both sides roll down, 4 compression straps in addition to the h-bar attachments.
    Different concept all together from the Buritto.
    -20 Bag, bivy, pad all in there, then compressed to about half the diameter.

    Bivy Bag

    I have a Goretex outer shell for my sleeping bag. Does that count as a Bivy Bag for the Susitna 100? It's a heavy duty military issue.

    Tim I do not see why not but then again I am not sure. Check with AK29 he is the one doing the gear check I think. I am useing a ThermoLite 2.0 Solo Bivvy Sack, it is light weight 6.65 oz (189 g) and cost effective $27
