Solving the Packer’s Problem

– how to compress your clothes and organize them too

Clothes are the bane of most packers' existence.  Next to perhaps shoes, nothing seems to take up more dead space in your bag.  You’re eyeing your small pile of clothes, thinking you’ve done a good job paring down the necessities, but when it comes time to pack up your bag before you know it you’re out of room.  Not only that, but your bag is full of a mish-mash of random clothing with no rhyme nor reason – finding what you want is a frustrating process, and there’s no room for that first aid kit or travel towel.

We've done a video on packing here at Wilderness Supply, and I stand by what I said within it: when packing clothes, stuff sacks are the way to go for organization, and compression sacks are the way to go to save space.  But what if you want the best of both worlds?  For those who want to have their cake and wear it too, a combination of both methods is the sure-fire way to packthe most in the least amount of space without skimping on organization.
