Roll it all up and use some ziplock bags to save some room and keep ur stuff dry. If it wrinkles easly fold it really nice and zip lock it up. the zip lock bags will make everything extremely flat!!! this is a great space saver and the best way to keep everything dry..

Roll it like there is no tommorrow! And roll things inside of other things. Roll things inside the pack and on the outside of the pack. And....well just roll it ok!

rollin' rollin' rollin'... get them doggies rollin'... rawhide!

I prefer to roll most things, fold a few others, and, depending on how big a hurry I am to get out of a particular place, kick, shove and cram other things into my pack as necessary. LOL
