A Hilltop Packs Food Bag is a lightweight accessory for organizing and storing a variety of items inside a backpack, around camp and while visiting trail towns. I especially like that it has a flat bottom, making for a better fit inside my pack and a bag that will stand upright on its own. It's durable, simple, and comes in a variety of colors... even unique custom prints and patterns! Background: When I first got into lightweight backpacking, DCF (formerly known as Cuben Fiber) was all the rage. Full review
Tough, reusable food and condiment storage bags with a reliable seal. Heat sealable and free-standing when full. Cost and weigh a bit more more, but last longer than the main alternative. A while back I stooped so low as to review a simple plastic spoon. Now I'm going further down that particular rabbit hole for a review of... plastic bags. But they're really good plastic bags! We all know the industry standard, zippable polyethylene bags that come in various weights, sizes, and zipper types. Sometimes… Full review
Robust and reliable, the Primus Primetech CampFire Utility Sack has many uses from the backcountry to your back door! With its low cost and durability, picking up this versatile workhorse is a no-brainer, must-have! The Primus New Primetech CampFire Utility Sack is a great addition to any outdoorsperson's kit! As a member of another website, at times I am given product to test and evaluate. This is NOT the case this time. I saw the potential of uses for this item if its website claims were accurate.

This bag will save the rodent population from me. So I've been an avid backpacker for 20+ years and never knew these existed. I've never had rodent problems where I've been until this last year where I've had two campsites bothered by relentless deer mice in Joshua Tree and a tent ruined by squirrels eating the zipper in Malibu. So while planning a 30-mile trip in the Grand Canyon I became aware that rodent-proof wire mesh bags are required just like bear cans are required in the Sierras. Apparently… Full review
I am not reviewing the product, I am reviewing the company's return policy and customer service. I attempted to return a product, and the retailer refused to accept it stating it was damaged (it was not). If you want hassle free returns and professional customer service, I would not recommend this retailer. The retailer has a poorly specified return policy and would not accept my return. I purchased an Outsak outdoor food storage bag, which is a fine metal mesh bag with a fabric Velcro top opening… Full review
Heavy duty waterproof plastic storage bag designed for carrying items you want to ensure do not get exposed to the elements (rain, dust, snow, humidity, sand, etc.). This write up is a complement to the LOKSAK OPSAK write up I've also provided. I originally bought these aLOKSAKs thinking they'd work for my food storage, but the food odors were coming through so I ended up going back and getting the OPSAK for that purpose. For my 3.5-day backpacking trip, I used these aLOKSAKs for carrying the items… Full review
Heavier duty plastic storage bag designed to block odors. Can be used for food storage, trash hauling and dirty clothes. A lighter weight option for backpacking when you're more concerned about critters getting into your food than bears. In mid-July I was joining a buddy of mine for a few days during his through hike of the Colorado Trail. When I met up with him prior to the trip he showed me these OPSAKs he had for food storage.They claimed to block food odors and from what we'd read regarding… Full review
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
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.
