Fluffy items such as coats, insulated jackets and sleeping bags that have plenty of air trapped in them to operate optimally should never be vacuum sealed. When you suck the air out of these items, their fabric is compressed and stays in that state for a long time. There is no great way to fluff them up again.
How do I keep my down jacket fluffy?
