Hi Brad,

For any compression sack, size it the same as the the stuffed dimensions on the sack that came with your bag(s). I think for the Heliums that's about 6x12". For this STS comp sack, that works out to the Small. That said, my tendency is to accept a slightly larger diameter (but still the same finished length) in trade for not fighting stuffing and rolling the top of the sack every morning, so I always use one of my mediums for my Marmot 0*. Too much compression, too often, really damages down...just so you know.
