Summary

Great product for certain situations.

I use one of these to hold my tent with sleeping pad wrapped around it. Makes a secure protected package. Also use one on sleeping bags when backpacking with an external frame. The longer shape is great for strapping to the outside of the pack.

Great compression sacks, with compression straps for length and diameter. High quality reinforced stitching, hefty buckles...all top notch. Shown here (at right, bottom of my pack-notice the Alps logo). Reduced my -5 degree back to a smallish tube size...easy to pack.

Here's what other sites are saying:

The large ALPS Mountaineering Cyclone Compression Sack compresses both diameter and length to make your gear more compact in your backpack.

- REI

Compression sacks save pack space, but sometimes they're still a little bulky and awkward; Alps Mountaineering added horizontal compression straps to the Cyclone Compression Sack to make sure it packs down in all directions. Bar-tacked stress points and double-stitched seams ensure that this sack can take years of use and abuse.

- Backcountry.com

Compression sacks save pack space, but their spherical shapes often make them nearly impossible to pack. Alps Mountaineering cures this annoying problem with the Cyclone Compression Sack. Wraparound straps compress the Cylcone into a long, skinny, and easily packable shape-more like a cylinder than a bulky nylon bowling ball.
