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.

Available in Blue, or Olive drab, instead of black like the other roll tops. 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.

"Rectangle": (fits smaller packs well standing upright)
Flat Dimensions: 16" wide x 20" tall (40.5 cm x 51 cm)
Full Dimensions: 11" wide by 5.5" deep by 12.5" tall (28 cm x 14 cm x 32 cm)

"Cylinder": (fits larger packs horizontally)
Flat Dimensions: 13" wide x 23.5" tall (33 cm x 60 cm)
Full Dimensions: roughly 8" diameter by 15" tall (20.3 cm x 38 cm)

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
