I also have a HH SS, and have hiked in virtual constant rain, as well
as fallen over in a rushing creek. My bag was compressed in a 'water
resistant' stuff sack, in my pack. It has never gotten even slightly
damp. Condensation has never affected it either. Including my bike
packing, and from what I have read on various net postings, wet
sleeping bags are not very likely. You could double bag it, with the
outside bag being a new clean trash bag. Nashbar WP panniers have
never let me down.
