Our food bags are made from thicker 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema®​ Composite Fabric to stand up to the abuse of bear bagging and to resist abrasion from heavy, pointy food items. The fabric is strong enough to discourage most small rodents but should still be hung out of reach over night.The “Large” size food sack can hold about 5-6 days of food.

The rectangular shape fits well in all of our backpacks, either standing vertically or sideways depending on the pack volume. The wide opening makes it easier to dig through the bag and find what you need.

This is also available as part of a Bear Bagging Kit with cord and a rock sack.

If you don’t need as much space for shorter trips check out our 3-4 day Big Food Bag.

  • Constructed from 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric which is thicker and stronger than our usual dry bag material. Dyneema® Composite Fabric is inherently waterproof.

  • Carabiner is included for hanging the bag from the roll top. 

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

  • This size will typically fit up to 5-6 days of food.

  • Fully taped seams. Our food bags will keep water out in typical backpacking conditions where the bag is not submerged.

  • The top of our dry bags seal with stiff velcro to make closing and rolling the top easy! Air can escape from the rolled velcro, allowing these to squish flatter in your backpack as more gear is piled on top.

  • For other storage options that will protect your gear from moisture, check out our Dry Bags collection. 

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

Excellent bag for storing food safely!

Great! The bag holds my three day food supply with room to spare. I added other items that might attract bears such as toiletries. I’m happy it comes with a small carabiner so you can hang the bag in a tree when needed. The Velcro closure is convenient as well—which I hope lasts.

Good Food Bag

The bag did exactly what I needed it to on my recent trip. My only concern was whether the bear rope would burn a hole in the side of the bag as it slid against it while being raised, but so far this has not been a problem. It kept my food dry while it rained which was the main requirement.

Great bag...lightweight....waterproof

I used this bag for my Foodbag on a 6 day hike. It is lightweight, plenty of room, and waterproof.... just what I wanted when I ordered it. I would recommend it

Best food bag on the market!

The Velcro closing makes this bag EXTREMELY easy to roll closed. This is also what separates it from the competition’s bags. Stitching and quality is second to none. The large size is perfect for fitting horizontally in my Nero backpack or any pack really. The only upgrade I would like to see Zpacks offer as an option is a flat bottom. However this is very simple to DIY with some DCF tape; that of course, Zpacks sells. Besides buying my own; I have also bought these for my wife and daughter as well. Highly recommend!!!
