@TimJ hopefully you'll see our other response! Do you have your Nemo sleeping bag stuffed into a compression sack before putting it in your pack? This should help quite a bit and ensure the sleeping bag doesn't overwhelm the majority of your pack!

@TimJ I have a Gregory Paragon 58 pack and iltge Nemo fits great. I do have to stuff it a bit but usually put a compactor bag iny pack from the top and shovey sleeping bag into that (from the top). I don't really use the bottom access. I have the compression sack for the sleeping bag but haven't used it yet.
So you opted for the 20, good choice...now stuff it in the bottom of your pack into a waterproof garbage bag of some sort
