Pretty easy to retrieve. I don't keep my blocky or boxy stuff in Stuff Sacks though.
    Very smart! That's what I kept wondering about the stuff sacks, but you have answered my question (concern, really).

    Thank you!

    I've used a 3D clear org cube. That works well also. But no, in the TSS my things are all standing on end, so not on top of each other, and easy to retrieve. I found that this is the Goldilocks option for my collection of stuff - the small OP is too small, the org cube is a little big, the size 1 TSS is just right.

    I use a #1 or #2 size Stuff Sack as an organizer in my SCB. It holds notepad, Chapstick, checkbook, all those small odds and ends. I like it over an organizer pouch because it's open at the top and easily accessible. Below is a picture of the #2 SS.

    Sunblock; lip block; sun hat (crushable)

    #2 stuff sack
    Extra camera battery; memory cards; lens cleaner; battery charger

    Binoculars harness; extra double carabiners;
    2-16" key straps

    Rain/wind jacket

    Nano puff jacket

    For me, the organiser cube is too big, and the pouches too flat - a UK plug is a lumpy triangular thing, and the stuff sack squishes into shape around it so that the whole lot takes up no more space than is absolutely necessary.

    I have 3 small yarn stuff sacks; I have used them inside my Little Swifts and Small Cafe Bag for organization, to store underclothes & socks when traveling, and as a geocaching bag hanging from the shoulder strap of my Synapse 19. One of my kids once used one as a bucket to rescue some baby salmon that had been trapped in a puddle of water at the side of a river....
    Aeronaut 45; Synapse 19; Co-Pilot; PCBP & other packing cubes; Swift; 2 x Little Swifts; Side Effect; 5 Shop Bags; Small Cafe Bag; 6 Travel Trays; 4 Clear Quarter Packing Cubes; Cache ; Guardian Lights; 3 x 3D Clear Organizer Cubes; 3 x 3D All-Fabric Organizer Cubes; 4 Yarn Stuff Sacks; 8 Clear Organizer Wallets; many, many pouches; Cafe Messenger Stabilizer.

    I use my medium stuff sack for the gym...I use it for a towel, keys, gym card and phone. I can easily hang it up on some machines too if they dont have a tray.

    I'd stuff Oliver in one but he wiggles too much even when napping. He has such a hard life.

    I use my #3 Stuff Sack at the Gym. It's the perfect size to carry my towel, keys, cell phone, water bottle and Bluetooth headphones. The Iberian color is easy to keep an eye on if I'm working with my trainer, and the dyneema scrunches down in the cubby holes of the cardio equipment when all the 'stuff' is out and in use. My cell phone pulls double duty with the Fitbit Flex ap to track steps/miles/calorie burn and play my Amazon MP3s. I love the Stuff Sack for this use; it's so versatile, easy to clean and has the cinch lock.
