Rating: rated 2 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: (3) for $13

Summary

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.

Pros

  • Scent barrier
  • Large size
  • Washable

Cons

  • Cost
  • Low durability

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 garbage bag. The first night in camp both bags holding food has small holes across the bottom from being set on the ground, bags were not over filled or abused. I was able to wash and dry bags upon returning home but will not be able to use them again as desired.  

Overall I am disappointed I spent so much on a slightly sturdier zip top.
