Bear Bagging Kit
Combine and save with this ultralight Bear Bagging Kit!

The kit includes:

1) Roll Top Food Bag - ($28 / 1.4 ounces / 40 grams)

The included food bag has waterproof taped seams, and a roll top to keep out the rain. The bag has about 750 cubic inches (12.3 Liters) of volume, which is enough for about 5 to 6 days of food.

The bag is sewn flat (envelope style) to ensure that the seams are taped waterproof, however when full it roughly forms a rectangle about 11" wide by 5.5" deep by 12.5" tall (28 cm x 14 cm x 32 cm).  This size will fit well in all of our packs, and in most other small backpacks.

This food bag 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 Blast 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."

2) 50 feet Z-Line Slick Cord - ($14.95 / 1.4 ounces / 40 grams)

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 ($4.95 .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 - ($1.95 / .1 ounces / 2.8 grams)

The food bag has a hang loop at the top, and an ultralight carabiner is included to clip it to your hang line.

Total: $44.85 (Save $5!) / 3.0 ounces / 85 grams
