    There’s not a lot you can say about a bear bag but two things really differentiate this one: first, it’s huge; and second, the square, flat bottom is a game-changer. The only downside I can think of is that it only comes in blue, so if you camp in crowded areas it’s sometimes hard to tell yours from all the others…

    Normally I wait until I can beat some products up a little before I review them, but this was just too impressive the second I opened it.
    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a food bag. I like to eat, and I like to pack fresh food for the first few days of my trips. This is spacious enough for 7 days of food, including snacks and fresh food, or for a solid 5 days of my and my dog’s food.
    The flat bottom makes it super accessible after a quick trial pack, and the hanging cord, biner, bag, and stick are helpful in their accessibility and simplicity.
    The stitching is what really takes this over the top, though. It’s super tight, has absolutely no allowances for error, and is among the best craftsmanship I’ve seen in any backpacking gear. The seams are taped beautifully with no bubbles or peeling. Even the way they glued down the lips before stitching the nylon and various closures is obviously very intentional and logical.
    I was honestly expecting to be underwhelmed with a $50 food hang bag and, instead, I’m delighted.

    Used for the first time this past weekend. Bag can easily hold 4-5 days worth of food for 2 people. Very easy to use and even the carabiner felt very quality. And the reflective cordage on the stick was a nice added bonus to help easily spot. Super happy with my purchase.

    Amazing Product! It’s crazy lite, and beyond enough storage for most situations. Best Bear bag on the market!

    My large bear bag kit arrived yesterday. It is very light replacing my old nylon bag and duct tape around a rock lol.

    This bag has twice the capacity of my old food bag, and weighs less than half as much as my old kit. The flat bottom makes it easy to stand the bag up and the wide opening makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. I really like the snap to hold it closed while you roll the top down much better than velcro.

    I carry food for me and my 10 year old on trips. I went with the large bear bag at Chris’ recommendation, and it’s easy to roll down when I don’t need the extra capacity. Chris answered all my questions in less than 24 hours. You can’t ask for better customer service.

    The Large size holds about a weeks worth of food for a single person, and that’s with packing items that take large amounts of space (for the calories) such as ramen and freeze dried meals. If you were space conscious I’m sure you could fit 12-14 days worth of food. The flat bottom makes it easy to set this on the ground and search through without worrying about it toppling over. I would absolutely recommend this bag to anyone needing a hanging food bag.

    I was worried about how durable the carabiner would be, but I was able to hang 10 days/17 pounds of food + 3 pounds of my dogs kibble and it was completely fine. I was careful to not let the PCT stick slam into the carabiner as I let the bag drop.

    The only downside for me is my rock bag developed a tear on my third night using this kit, and has a few pinholes. I don’t know if it was from the rocks inside or scraping against a tree when throwing. I think the ripping may have been user error so I’m not subtracting a star for it.

    This bag holds a LOT of food, and is super strong. However, a gave it 4 stars because the LiteAF carabiner that came with became broke AF the first time I used it on the trail. Luckily, I had another one that I forgot to remove from a dry sack I was carrying. But since I bought the bag for reasons other than that little biner, I would still HIGHLY recommend this bear bag. It carried all the food I needed for a one week trip, and then some. The flat bottom made it easy to sit the bag on the ground and rummage through it, or to use it as a wind break for my stove. I would definitely recommend this bag. Just remember to change out that carabiner before you go out.

      I’m sorry to hear about the carabiner. The one you received was most likely defective and we would be happy to send you a replacement.
