Would be great if the pic is handy.

A common way to attach the lazy jacks is to a batten in a sewn sleeve/pocket along the top of the stack pack. This is how my one is done. I can provide a pic if it would help?
I had a quote for a stack pack on a 38 ft masthead yacht, its about $1800 with sunbrella.

Doesn't sounds awful, but that is way more expensive what I considered to spend on it initially, even I need a smaller unit. Just for the curious do you know the key dimensions (boom length, sail height on the mast track when it is down)?

Thank IT looks pretty good. Looks like I try to over-think the problem.

could you post a pic of the stack from below the boom

Have I missed it, or has no one said anything about the fact the Sail, if it's foot is fixed in a track, has to be made into a loose footed sail.

I disagree. It was the second best thing I fitted to my Boat. In a strong wind, can drop the main on my own in seconds and rush back to take care of something else and when I get onto the mooring or where ever I am headed, I can the go back and tidy the main and zip the pack closed. I hear what you are saying re the lazy jacks. But the lazy jacks should be the same either with or without the Bag, so the issue is likely in how they are set up. I have some bungee on the LJ lines up the mast and when I let those main lines go, the bungee pulls the LJ's into the mast.

A well made Stakpak is not a cheap item and needs to be well made in order to be simple to operate, but they certainly make sail handling easier when combined with LJs and full length battens. Our mainsail is approx 48sqm and is easily raised and stowed from the cockpit - the only reason to go to the mast is to tuck the head in and close the zip.

The underside looks like this.. there are battens across ways to hold the base of the cover open and keep the LJs apart.
