      I believe these are made in China and not of the highest quality. I
      have one of the smaller ones and it is as advertised. There aren't
      any good places to tie anything or really attach, so that is a
      downside as well. But for the price, it is a good bag. Even with the
      low quality, for the price I would get another when it wears out.

      just stuff them into the bag, and then pour it back into a box of
      known capacity? I'm interested in checking this closely because the
      listed dimensions are 23x12x10 inches; which does not come out
      anywhere near 3200- more like 2760, and that is if all space is
      available. but there may be pockets or extension collars the text
      omits describing?

      again last month on a trip to Supai canyon and a couple of guides
