Many moons ago, people disliked their sleepbags smacking them in the thighs, and these quick access pouches were created for that.

This, in my opinion, is a horrible use. I never get my bag out first. I always go for my tent. I have a Marmot Thor 3P tent that I store in the bottom, and put my stakes down the "sides" of that pouch up the walls of the bag. It is completely accessible for in this way. Once i get my bag in my vestibule, then I open it from the side zip pouch and start gutting it.

I also like to keep a low to mid center of gravity on my bag to avoid losing balance. (Totally recommend trekking poles when you have a high center of balance).

Anyone have any suggestions about how to pack a 6 liter MSR Dromedary Bag with drinking tube? The Palisade 80L has a nice sewn in blue water drop near the top for the tube to push through so you can stick it within the straps.

Where is the best place to stuff the water bag/bladder with tube?

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!
