I bought an REI FLASH Insulated mattress and a Sea to Summit 20 L. inflator dry bag. Yeah, It’s large for 3 season camping but all my clothes go into it including my down sweater.
I just roll the top down until I’ve got everything inside compressed then buckle the dry bag off. In camp my clothes stay inside the tent when I use the bag for mattress inflation then the clothes go back into the bag.Jan 26, 2019 at 6:27 am #3575133Ryan JordanAdmin

Yes. That’s a winning use. I use my Schnozzel similarly.Jan 26, 2019 at 1:21 pm #3575151JCHBPL Member
Yep. You gotta have dual-use for everything :)

Love the Schnozzel. I use mine as a pack liner…holds the quilt, puffy, clothes and anything else I want to guarantee stays dry. I also love and recommend the Sea to Summit Ultramesh stuff sacks. Great for clothes or anything where you want to see what’s in the bag. Super durable so far (3 years).Mar 5, 2020 at 6:43 pm #3634439Diane “Piper” SoiniBPL Member

I did that with a pocket shower. It was a pocket shower when I needed one, otherwise I put my sleeping bag and clothes in it.Mar 5, 2020 at 11:12 pm #3634458Hugh MaclarenBPL Member
I have a lightweight 18 litre silnylon sea to summit day pack with a roll top which I store clothes etc in during the day. I fitted a nozzle in the bottom to inflate my neoair and if needed, I also use it as a day pack. Slightly heavier than a straight stuff sack, but I think a good multiuse.Mar 9, 2020 at 12:37 pm #3635024Dena KelleyBPL Member

I also do the same thing with my pump sack. Works great.
