Hamhock Outdoor Gear Feed Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars This product has me super stoked. Not only does it keep your hands from getting burned while cooking backpacking food, but it keeps the food warm until the very last bite! Self supported gussetted bottom allows you to get your food cooked while setting up the tent and then sit down to a warm meal at the end of a hard day's backpacking. Easy to use, clean and also good as a wind break while you boil the water. (Please note this reviewer has a personal relationship with the owner but this item was… Full review

LokSak OPSAK

rated 2 of 5 stars A very expensive zip top bag, sturdier than a freezer bag but not by much, blocks most odors but not all, not worth the extra cost. I was hoping LokSaks would solve my food organization needs with a reusable eco-friendly bag as well as work as a scent barrier while traveling areas with a decent bear population. They are nowhere near as heavy duty as I was looking for. Before heading out for a few days I packed two large bags with food, one for myself, one for my partner, and had the third as the… Full review

Ursack S29 AllWhite

rated 5 of 5 stars The "tied" and true, Bear discouragement, food containment system, the Ursack Spectra 29 AllWhite, may very well be your best available option for food containment, food protection, and food safety, as well as, ease of use, weight and volume consideration, while on the trail.

Armored Outdoor Gear Ratsack Cache Bag

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best solution to store and protect food if you are not using a bear can. I have purchased the large and small sizes and have been using both for over 6 years. Have had birds and rodents get into fabric and nylon bear bags but have not had any problems with these. The large rat sack will hold enough food items to challenge you when hanging it in a tree. The single rope hanging method works very well but you need to have a rope that will support the weight and slide over your branch. The rat sacks… Full review

Ursack S29 AllWhite

rated 5 of 5 stars I have used the AllWhite in the Adirondacks, home of Yellow-Yellow, the black bear who opens the BearVault, for about 100 nights. Just last weekend it was attacked by a raccoon, who spent quite some time on it to no avail. The UrSack AllWhite is an easy to use alternative to hard sided canisters. The only knots needed are an overhand and a figure-eight. The Ursack has been with me for over 100 nights in the Adirondacks over the past 3 years. I use it all seasons including the winter as it also protects… Full review

GrubPack

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought the GrubPack ultra light model. I have used it for 3 or 4 weekend trips on the AT.  It works great. The mice scurry about on it, but have never chewed through the metal netting. My bag holds enough for me for a two day outing. It's simple to use. Well built. No problems. Great product. Full review

Simple Outdoor Solutions Outsak UL

rated 5 of 5 stars I had the privilege of being a field tester for the Outsak UL. It is similar to the Outsak, but lighter. Much lighter. I was skeptical before I received the bag for testing. Honestly, I just wanted the free food bag. The weight of the steel mesh was a surprise. It was much lighter than anticipated. I put the Outsak UL to the test for about 2 months. Leaving it in my backyard for neighborhood raccoons, possums, squirrels, and a wide assortment of birds to take their shot at the food that was contained… Full review

GrubPack

rated 5 of 5 stars I read reviews on Trailspace and various backpacking forum topics regarding these wire mesh food bags. I looked at Grubpack and Outsack. They are pretty much the same thing. They use a steel wire mesh to form the bag and a wide velcro strip at the top to close it. The real difference is price. I compared their large size bags. Not only did Grubpack cost less, but it shipped free. I saved about $14 over the Outsack price. I ordered online and had it about 3 days later. I've had my Grupack on 2 trips… Full review
