Tips for packing larger tents.

Besides getting a more compressible or compact tent, are there alternative spots to strap the tent to keep the balance?.

Not bad for the money
Not near the quality of my old targus product. i personaly dont thing the zip thru function on this or even the high end bags is worth the space loss. main issue is that the bag was too small for my use with loss of space

Also, I didn't want to check a bag,...
