    This intrigues me, and I have a couple of uqp's. Any other mods other than the toggles and loops?
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.

    This looks nice- would a UQ/TQ combo in the 20* range fit in the sleeve sack/ then into the stuff sack ?

    Here’s what PapaSmurf had to say about it on another thread a while back:

    Thanks HR just the info I was looking for. Looks like the addition of a TQ might be iffy. Maybe this would be better with a 40* setup/ all in one stuff?

    I've found packing the items individually does take up less space in my pack but the ease/speed of setup makes it worthwhile sometimes. I really like using my LST setup with a large drybag on paddling trips. I've used it in the bottom of my pack a few times and while it does compress I always feel like I'm struggling to get the same gear inside

    Some time I'll have to do an apples to apples comparison with the same gear.
