    Ursack Major

    Prevent pesky bears from snagging a midnight snack with the Ursack Major from Ursack. Made with "bulletproof" material, the Ursack Major 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

    Great food storage !!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Ursack is a great bear and critter proof bag. The sack has held up well for the many trips I have taken it on. The food sack is a great alternative to the heavy bear canisters. It does take a few times of playing around with the knots, once you get them down it is very simple, and hanging food from a tree is a breeze. This Kevlar sack is a nice addition to ultra-light backing weighing under 8oz. This sack can easily store between 4-5 days of food nice and easy, depending on your backpacking food choices.

    Pros:

    Very Strong

    Weight

    IGBC-certified

    Cons:

    Not odor proof

    Not water proof

    Accessibility, having to untie knots when you need to get something out

    Not National Parks rated for bear canisters

    Great food storage !!!

    So far, still there.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Admit it, you hate bear canisters and having rodents eat your snacks.
    So far I can't tell if anything has even tried getting into it.
    Its light and has a supple smooth fabric that feels amazingly strong. I was able to stash my 4 bagels, jars of PB, 2 bananas, coffee, 4 bars, toothpaste\brush inside no problem.
    Despite hearing and seeing small critters running around, I can't tell if any even tried to get into the Ursack. I could have gone with the smaller one as most of my trips are solo but the size doesn't matter much.

    FYI, I don't live in bear country and probably would not depend on the Ursack as my sole means of food protection if I were to travel there.

    Love this!

      Love this item. Havent had an experiences with bears trying to get in it yet but its lightweight for backpacking and pretty easy to secure to a tree. I hung it in a rain storm and none of my food got wet. Highly recommend!

      Does the Ursack work?

        Am happily anticipating the arrival of my first Ursack. Seems like a far lighter alternative to my bear vaults. However, if you are in a campsite without trees and cannot hang the sack, that long cord becomes a very nice handle for a hungry bear to drag it off. In the Adirondacks we always remove the nylon zippered case from our vaults to prevent a black bear from grabbing a handle and making off with the food. What do others think?
