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.
- Potentially crushed food
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 from other creatures. Although the smaller rodents are able to pierce the bag. It is recommended to use the aluminum liner to reduce the potential for crushed food and to prevent the sharp toothed rodents from puncturing your food.
A raccoon recently spent hours trying to get into it. The only damage is some (hundreds) of teeth marks all over the bag. Due to raccoons having smaller, sharper teeth than a bear, he was able to puncture one of the ziplocs inside hence the recommendation for the liner.
New for 2009. The Ursack S29 AllWhite is made of "bullet proof" Spectra fabric and comes with an integrated six foot high tensile strength cord. The AllWhite weighs less than 8 ounces, and is about 8 inches in diameter and 13 inches tall. It holds about 650 cubic inches and comes with one free odor barrier bag (OPSak). Ursack is bear and critter resistant. Pictured here with and without optional aluminum liner. Not tested or approved by the Sierra Interagency Black Bear Group (SIBBG) or IGBC.
