The included food bag has waterproof taped seams, and a roll top to keep out the rain. It is made from heavy duty 1.43 oz/sqyd Dyneema Composite Fabric. It can easily stand up to the abuse of bear bagging heavy loads or pointy food items. The material is even rodent resistant-
"On several occasions I've seen mice check out my DCF food bag and eventually give up. I let one persistent mouse chew on it for the entire night- by morning he had done some minor damage but did not get into my food."

The rectangular shape has a wide opening so that you can find your food items easier. It also fits well standing upright or sideways in our packs.

The food bag has a hang loop at the top, and a mini carabiner is included to clip it to your hang line.

Our Dyneema Z-Line slick cord glides over branches better than lines with a polyester sheath. 50 feet is more than you need - extra is included in case you get it snagged or need some for other uses. We chose our thicker 2 mm line because it is easier to handle and less prone to tangling than thinner bear lines. The gray color line is harder for bears and other animals to find and chew through.

A rock sack makes bear bagging easier. Just put in a rock, pebbles, or sand, tie on your cord, and toss it up over a branch.

Jason from Outdoor Adventures Reviews the Zpacks Bear bag Kit after a year of use.
Read Ryan Z's Zpacks Bear Bag Kit Review.
"The bear bag arrived in time for my Grand Canyon trip. WOOHOO! I used it with an odor proof plastic bag and NO issues with mice. I hung the combo in a bush or tree with a carabiner and the rodents ignored it! My other companions used heavy, metal mesh rat sacks. One of them had a mouse chew into thin plastic bags THROUGH the rat sack. I was quite happy to be carrying a ~2 oz combo verses their 12 oz rat sack. Thanks for a great product." -Aubrey W.
"I have been a long time fan of your products. I currently have your bear bagging kit, which has performed nothing less than stellar for my trips into the back country. I am sending you this email to let you know that I appreciate the quality of your gear and how light weight it is. Thank you for providing the outdoor community with such awesome and reliable gear." -Josh G.
