  • sleeping bag compression sack

    Anyone here tried to use a different compression sack for the sleeping bag system? I've heard some stories of soldiers using a aftermarket stuff sack for the bag, and it makes it more manageable in the ruck.... Anyone know about this?

    Are we talking about the old single compression sack or the new one that has two compression sacks?

          Use whatever you want, but when you go to turn it in, you better have the original or you are paying $345 for the ENTIRE thing, unless your Supply Sergeant has an extra.

            I havent actually been issued a sleeping bag, I'm using my own, but I bought a new ECWS system off ebay a year ago. I'm still waiting for gear to arrive. We're just gettin ready to go on our AT for a foreign country, where its winter, and I wanna be able to maximize what I can fit into my Alice pack.

              Have you checked with your leaders on using your own gear? Also, I remember a SSG getting yelled at because he used his personal items for inspection (after coming from the field) then his supply issue. Use and clean what you got.

              I have slept in below zero cold when there was no more fuel for the pot belly. The sleep system with your cold weather gear (poly-pros and outer layers) will do the trick. Trust me. Where are you going in the cold in July? Argentina?

                        I mostly went to Fort Dix but we had people go down to the border to help build the fences and if you spoke fluent spanish; you went to Cuba.
