Summary

I'LL NEVER USE A BEAR CAN AGAIN (unless I have to...).

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Not rigid
  • Collapsible
  • Bearproof
  • Roomy

Cons

  • Not approved in some national forests and parks yet.

We have all used BearVault or similar bear canisters. And although they do what they're supposed to they are an unarguable pain in the butt. Heavy, bulky, they take up the same amount of space in our packs whether we are on day one or day 10...

Ursack is collapsable, about half the weight of BearVault, and carries the same, if not more food. 

Unfortunately they are not yet approved in all of the National Parks, but I wouldn't be surprised if we start seeing them swiftly taking over the trails. 

Experience

Hiking through the Colorado Rockies, hunting in Montana. Wish I had it in SEKI, but it wasn't allowed yet.
