For great inexpensive way to pack your sleeping bags without having to buy those vacuum seal bags just use a large garbage bag. Roll up the sleeping bag as tight as you can and place it in the garbage bag, take your vacuum cleaner hose and place it in the opening, hold the bag tight around the edge of the hose and suck out as much air as you can. When the bag is compacted quickly and carefully pull out the hose and seal it with a rubber band. You can use a small car vac to do the same thing when your trip is over and you are headed home.
Garbage bags also make great quick raincoats. Just cut a hole for your head and slip it over your body for great protection.
