    Last weekend I made a schnozzel for my Exped Synmat UL 7 by taping a 3-inch piece of irrigation pipe into the corner of my old trash compactor bag. It only increased the weight of the bag by 8 grams (0.3 ounces)! See photos and captions below for more information.

    Completed bag. The cork seals the opening during dry bag use. The extra piece of pipe is shown for reference only to see the total length of piece I taped into the corner.

    Closer view. To get a good seal between the pipe and Exped valve I wrapped some tape around the end of the pipe until the outside diameter was about the same as a wine bottle cork.

    Another view of the DIY schnozzel.

    Looks good. So you carry the bag as a liner anyway?

    Let us know how the tape-job holds up.

    Nice!  A little more work than what I use for my Xtherm (https://www.amazon.com/Therm-a-Rest-NeoAir-AirTap-Pump-Kit/dp/B07C9Y9M9H  ) but accomplishes the same thing, plus you have the satisfaction of DIY :)

    Does it double as your pack liner?

    “Does it double as your pack liner?”

    Yep, that’s what the cork is for.

    I am too lazy for this easy project. Instead I bought a Sea to Summit 40 Liter dry bag/inflator for my REI insulated air mattress.

    I like its “foot loop” on the side opposite the valve. You step on the loop to hold it in shape to “inflate” it. That’s something you could easily add to the DIY inflator bag. Just a 10″ long cord formed into a loop and taped on.

    Ah!  Duct Tape and Bailing wire!  The secret weapons of any good engineer!
