The Ute video describes using a stuff sack to lash and carry a synthetic sleeping bag/air mattress combo on top of the Ute for multi-day trips. I understand the rationale for this, have a bulky low-density item high, thereby keeping the center-of-gravity lower to foster balance for off trail walking.
I favor down bags, and as such prefer my bag sequestered inside a drybag which is in turn, surrounded by a trash compactor bag. I just wondered if anyone has tested or considered carrying the food bag up top in such a manner, and how the Ute carried if so? Five or so days of food should be about the same size as the bedroll in the vid but weigh twice as much.
