Lead Time 1 Week

Need a reliable way to keep your food safe from bears and other woodland creatures? Our kit provides the ultimate bear bagging combo at the lowest weight. This kit includes our Large Food Bag with a carabiner,Rock Sack and 50ft of2.0mm Z-Line Slick Cord; everything you need to ensure your food is safe while you sleep.

  • Constructed from 1.43 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.

NO issues with mice

"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."
