Is it ok to neatly roll up a hollow fibre sleeping bag and squeeze it into its carry bag for storage? I believe feather down bags are supposed to be scrunched up and squeezed into their carry bags.

I mean fold and roll the bag and then squeeze it into the carry bag. Apparently this causes down bags to get a memory and flatten out instead of remaining puffy.

Paul those sleeping bags are meant to be packed away like that.  You will find that it is much easier to get them in the storage bag by just stuffing them in from the start without rolling it up.

Just prop them in from one end.  It's much quicker than rolling them up and then try to get it in the bag.

Leon are you saying hollow fibre bags should be stuffed in too like the down ones?

Yes just prop them in no rolling no folding. I have two of them and they are stored that way 90% of the time during the year.

I believe Leon is right.  The so called puffer jackets that is also stuffed with hollow fiber, usually come with a small bag attached into which you squeeze the jacket until it is almost small enough to fit into your toilet bag and it does not seem to do any harm.

During my SANDF years I was part of a project team that worked on the replacement of the sleeping gear of the SANDF soldier.

We at that time were bombarded with new technology about the in and outside of sleeping bags.  Hollow Fibre was okay at that time and Micro fibre the way to go.  Can have a comfortable sleep during subzero temperatures.

In both cases it was demonstrated that you just prop the sleeping bag into its carry bag.
