Keep your food safe from bears, rodents, and other woodland creatures with our ultralight Bear Bagging Kit. Featuring a Large Food BagRock Sack and 50ft of 2.0mm Z-Line Slick Cord, our Bear Bagging kit is everything you need to make sure your food is safe while you sleep.


  • Constructed from 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric. By comparison our regular Dry Bags are made from thinner 1.0 oz/sqyd material.

  • Easily stands up to the abuse of bear bagging heavy loads or pointy food items.

  • Carabiner is included with the Large Food Bag 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 also 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 the 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The material is even slightly rodent resistant as persistent rodents usually give up before causing major damage to the bag.

  • 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.

  • Made in the USA.

Seems like a good product

What can I say. It's a dcf bear bag. I'm happy with it but I've only had it out on one trip so far. It seems pretty sturdy.

great

Great product- I let the kids play with it-pretending they were hiding food from bears using trees in the yard. Too much throwing the small bag with a rock in it into the ground did rip it up a bit, but that's my fault, and it's not the kind of treatment it will get out in the field. Can't believe how light this material is, and now I need to get out and use it!

When you purchase a product from Zpacks you know you are getting a well thought out quality product. I feel the staff at Zpack cares and understands the importance of each order. Thanks

Great product

The bag is very durable and able to accommodate a large amount of food. Easy to use- plenty of paracord - rock sack for throwing is very convenient.
