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.

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 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?
