or REI collapsible:

Please help me understand the packing or hanging aspect realities. The collapsibles I can supposedly stash inside the pack or outside pockets, but will i have room for that really? Can I hang them from the pack in collapsed mode as shown in photos? You can only have these either in full size mode or collapsed. In full size, I dont think you can hang them from a packs hooks.

On the other hand the non collapsibles, you can have them in full size or the shorter size as shown in photos.

thoughts?
