The US Military issues these compression sacks in conjunction with sleeping bags so personnel can better mange their gear. Compression sacks are commonly used to significantly reduce the amount of surface area sleeping bags occupy when attached to a backpack. Depending on how many layers are going to be stuffed and how heavy the material is, compression sacks can generally shrink the volume of the load between 30-50%. The small Improved MSS Compression Sack is constructed with water resistant materials and has adequate volume for two of the three components of the Improved MSS -20 Degree 5-Part Sleeping Bag System.
