    Travel Stuff Sack

    I am sure it's on the forum somewhere but I have been looking in vain. Can someone please post a pic or pics of the 4 sizes of the travel stuff sacks next to like a can of soda or something (anything) so I can get a better idea on their size. I combed YouTube for a video of said comparison with no luck. Thank you in advance, especially if you can direct me to an existing thread on this subject.

    Hi @melminimalist,

    For the largest collection of Travel Stuff Sack comparison pictures in one place, I'll point you to @eWalker's page:
    https://nomadewalker.wordpress.com/2...el-stuff-sack/

    There are multiple threads that deal with using Travel Stuff Sacks, but try looking at the 2012 Travel Stuff Sacks Review thread:
    https://forums.tombihn.com/photos-vi...ks-review.html


    Also. Take a look at the 2012 TB Blog posts about Travel Stuff Sacks. here's one about size comparisons:
    https://blog.tombihn.com/travel-stuf...parison-photos

    especially Darcy's post (#9) that shows images of the various size travel stuff sacks, labeled by size number, in the Aeronaut 45:


    There are also some pictures that I have comparing the Travel Laundry Stuff Sacks with various TSS and YSS (travel and yarn stuff sacks) in the Laundry Stuff Sacks are here thread:
    https://forums.tombihn.com/photos-vi...post74355.html

    Finally, if you're familiar with the Eagle Creek Specter II quarter packing cubes, you can use this for relative size. A 3D Organizer Cube is 1 liter. The quarter packing cube is slightly larger (about 1.3 liter), and I can use that to stash a lot of my clothing items -- such as a Merino wool jersey. Anything I put into that quarter cube, can fit into a Side Effect (the Halcyon ones -- 1.5 liters, so I can fit a small Merino tee-shirt along with the Jersey in the quarter packing cube into my Side Effect). The Size 2 TSS is slightly larger than the Side Effect, so I can fit anything I place into that Side Effect into the Size 2 travel Stuff Sack, with some additional items. This was outlined with some pictures in my post (#19) in the Packing a Big Hoodie thread:
    https://forums.tombihn.com/general-b...html#post78264

    (One of the forum members asked for tips about packing down a bulky Hoodie, and the upshot of the forum discussions was a suggestion that a lightweight Merino wool jersey would not only be a better solution both for her use in going between hot, humid conditions and overly air-conditioned lecture halls, but would also be more packable, and also usable for travel.)

    HTH

    My problem with stuff sacks is that I think they are X inches tall and forget that you lose an inch or two when the drawstring is closed.

    At least with a packing cube, the size when full and zipped closed is the size listed on the website.
