Thermarest sells a stuff sack for $5-10, avail at REI.  Works great, but you do
have to roll the pad pretty tight and it takes a little practice getting it
into the stuff sack without it uncoiling.  If its wet, I just put it inside my
pack.  If it's dry, I use some of those wide straps and strap it down on
the outside.
