Bear Bagging Kit
Combine and save with this ultralight Bear Bagging Kit!
1) Roll Top Food Bag - ($39 / 1.4
ounces / 40 grams)
The included food bag has waterproof taped seams, and a roll top to
keep out the rain.
It is made from heavy duty 1.43 oz/sqyd Cuben Fiber.
It can easily stand up to the abuse of bear bagging heavy loads or
pointy food items. The material is even rodent resistant-
"On several occasions I've seen mice check out my
food bag and eventually give up. I let one
persistent mouse chew on it for the entire night- by morning he had
done some minor damage but did not get into my food."
There are two shapes to choose from. Both shapes
have about 750 cubic inches (12.3 Liters) of volume, which is enough
for about 5 to 6 days of food.

2) 50 feet Z-Line Slick Cord - ($15 / 1.4 ounces /
50 feet (15.24 meters) of 2.2mm Z-Line Slick is included.
Our Dyneema slick line glides over branches better than lines with a
polyester sheath. 50 feet is more than you need - extra is included
in case you get it snagged or need some for other uses. We chose our thicker 2.2mm
line because it is easier to handle and less prone to tangling than
thinner bear lines.
3) Rock Sack ($5 / .1 ounces / 2.8 grams)
A rock sack makes bear bagging easier. Just put in a rock, pebbles,
or sand, tie on your cord, and toss it up over a branch.
4) Carabiner - (.1 ounces / 2.8 grams)
The food bag has a hang loop at the top, and an ultralight
ZPacks.com carabiner is included to clip it to your hang line.
Total: $50 (Save about $9!) / 3.0 ounces / 85 grams
