Stuff sack

A stuff sack is a type of drawstring bag, usually used for storing camping items. Stuff sacks are commonly used for the storage of sleeping bags, which are otherwise bulky and difficult to manage.[1] Stuff sacks may also be used as general containers to collect many small items together.

The compression sack is a type of stuff sack designed particularly for the storage of sleeping bags in internal-frame backpacks. It is equipped with a cloth lid that is attached to the opposite (sealed) end of the sack by adjustable straps. When the straps are forcibly shortened, the sack and its non-rigid contents are reduced in size.
