What is the best way to wash and care for this sleeping bag? I just returned with mine from a long backpacking trip and the bag unfortunately had to be packed next to some wet clothes. How should I best wash or keep this bag clean as a result? THanks.

I'm looking for an uber tough really large dry sack to line my 35L pack. Would this product fit the bill? Any other recommendations? I am not super concerned about it being absolutely waterproof but would find that a nice perk. Is this product super durable even with the sharp corners of prepacked food?

Osprey's website says this pack should be able to pack about 15-20 lbs. Has anyone maxed out the weight in this pack? At what weight does this pack start to suffer or the shoulder straps begin to bite? I have heard reports that claim the pack is uncomfortable over 10 pounds (which is pretty light considering the 3L of water is 6.6 lbs already).

Also, would I be able to fit a padded DSLR camera, zoom lens, rain coat and a few spare items in the main compartment? How big of a water bottle can the side pockets securely hold (500/750/1000mL)?

Thanks!

Alright, this may be a dumb question but...
How well can this pack be compressed down for short day hikes?

I was considering the Manta series (also has the mesh suspended back) but they lack any tool attachments. Stratos series has 1 tool attachment that looks pretty small and not very useful. This pack might be overkill but if it compresses really tightly and carries well with minimal gear in the pack, I might bite the bullet and get this instead.

I'm looking for an absolute BOMBproof shell that can be very cool on hot humid days. I do field work regularly in dense undergrowth and am still trying to find the perfect jacket that keeps me as cool as possible but will also live up to tons of abuse. Any recommendations? Is this jacket good in really hot jungle-comparable weather?

What are the slits in the Jacket that are lateral to the Napolean pockets? Looks like there are slits in the jacket that are found on the front between the Napolean pockets and the side pit zips. What are those for?

And how well does the schoeller® C_Change® fabric resist water, stretch, and wear over abbrasions?
