Why We Like The Major Bear Bag

Prevent pesky bears from snagging a midnight snack with the Major Bear Bag from Ursack. Made with "bulletproof" material, the Major Bear Bag can withstand attacks from creatures or critters as it's suspended with the 6-foot tensile cord from a nearby tree. And it's easy enough to set-up in camp that you'll be able to clean the dishes and protect the rest of your food fast enough to squeeze in a few games of rummy before calling it a night.


  • Virtually puncture proof bear bag for backcountry excursions
  • Reinforced material withstands bear and critter encounters
  • 6-foot tensile cord for easy hanging at camp
  • Cinch closure makes food easily accessible for meal prep
  • Lightweight enough to pack it and forget it

I've used it several times

This product totally fails and should be discontinued. When a bear finds it, even when used exactly as instructed, the bear will claw it open and get all the food. Here's a picture of my breached bag. All the food was gone, the only thing remaining was the correctly tied bag and a bunch of torn up food wrappers on the ground. The company that makes this product is doing a huge disservice to bears and people. Bears that get a taste of people food never go back. They become extremely dangerous and have to be destroyed. Save yourself and save a bear, don't buy this product.

7 day backpack with few issues

I've put it through the wringer

Just returned from a 7 day backpack trip. I started with 8 lbs of food in my Ursak major. I like the fact that is conformable to the shape of the food saving space in my pack. The rope they use is easy to tie and untie without knots getting difficult. I had no opportunity to see if it would withstand a bear attack, but I also saw no indication of smaller critters getting at my food either. One suggestion I have is cover the bag with a plastic trash bag when you hang it as it is not water proof and becomes much heavier once it is wet.

Peace of Mind

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Used this once, for a six day high altitude backpacking trip. Watched a frustrated chipmunk chew at it for about five minutes before it gave up. Nary a mark. Looking forward to more trips with this worthy product. If you spend a lot of time in bear country, you might wanna choose a bear vault, but otherwise the Ursack does the trick. Make sure to tie it well, as lil rodents can squeeze through a keyhole. (I throttle tie it around the top.)
