Hey, what size compression sack do you...

Hey, what size compression sack do you use? I've been using a size M Sea to Summit eVent DryComp bag, and my Pinnacle gets smaller than it's stuff sack, but only by about 1/3 I'd say. I'm putting it in foot first, zipper partialy open to allow air to escape. Do I need a smaller comp sack or is that just about as small as it gets?

I use the same Sea to Summit eVent compression sack you have pictured, but I use a size small. It's a really tight fit to get the dry sack rolled closed at the top, but if you work at it you can get it rolled three times and then snap the buckle closed. I've not tried the bag in the XS size compression sack, but I would venture to say it won't fit. I dare someone to prove me wrong though, just not with my sleeping bag... :)

Small size works great for just the sleeping bag. I find it helpful to use a medium and put my dry layer in as well to ensure that I have something dry to change into.
