Clever Idea, Mediocre Bag.

Comments about Equinox Ursus Ultralite Bear Bag:

While the idea is clever, the overall quality of the bag is poor. As other reviews have mentioned, the concept of the rock-launcher is a good idea. But the bag seems flimsy. The polyurethane stuff-sacks Campmor sells separately seem much more durable and water-resistant; I'll be using one of those rather than the one it came with.

Comments about Equinox Ursus Ultralite Bear Bag:

For the price it's what I expected it to be. As another review mentioned, the rock-launcher system works pretty well, but the bag itself seems pretty flimsy. I'll be using the rock-launcher with another polyurethane sack I got from Campmor that seems more durable. Overall, the product is simply adequate for the price.

Comments about Equinox Ursus Ultralite Bear Bag:

I think each backpacker needs to carry their own bear bag system, that way it is always with them. More the one person per sack could lead to a situation where the two could be separated and one backpacker will have to do without. It doesn't make sense to me why this could happen because the Ursus Ultralite Bear Bag is ultralight.

      Haven't tried it out yet but the material isn't as heavy duty as I would have liked. Bag is a little smaller than the one I had before from Gregory. Red color adds visibility.

            A bag of weight and not much else

              • Heavy

              Best Uses

                Comments about Equinox Ursus Ultralite Bear Bag:

                I wanted a bag to store food and hang. Over the years, I've always hung a pack and thought a bag would be better. However, the bag adds weight without really improving functionality. The "rock-it pocket" concept was good. I've tied many rocks only to have them fall loose before looping the branch. However, the concept fails miserably here. 1st, the pocket is so small, you'd have to melt lead into it to get it heavy enough for a good throw, 2nd, the pocket is heavy itself, adding unnessary weight to your pack. It comes with 50 foot of cord. The cord is pretty heavy too. I've used lighter cords for years without problems. When you hang the bag, you have to hang it with the top up. This makes little sense. If it rains, water can easily get into the cinch hole. Of course, the bag itself isn't waterproof either, which is poor design. It comes with a "pocket" on the side to store the cord and bag. Why do you need a bag within a bag? It is just added weight. The whole unit is flimsy. The velcro on the outside pocket was poorly sewn such that, it was already pulling apart when I took it out of shipping container! When I purchase items, I'm expecting that my backpacking experience will be better, but this purchase has left me with a bag that I will not use again. I'm back to hanging my pack, with the pack raingear on it, with the opening upside down, knowing that this is rain proof, functional, and "critter" resistant.

                we used this for what is was meant for--a bear bag
                it is lightweight and surprisingly durable. my only complaint is the capacity. it could be a little larger for longer trips. or we could just buy another one.

                    Flimsy replacement. I bought one 10 years ago from Campmor, it was made of a durable cloth material. I lost it, so just bought a new one. The new one is flimsy plastic that I think will be destroyed if it gets near anything sharp or hot.

                      Only thing lacking is squirrel protection. Place a camp plate upside down inside top of bag before hanging and squirrels cannot get in. Lightweight bag is easier to get up higher away from bears as well. Loved it so much I ordered another one right away.

                          No, this item is not designed to withstand a bear trying to get to your treats. If this bear bag is properly in a tree it will help in keeping your food safe. If you are looking for something that is bear-proof, please check the link below.

                          The material itself is silicone impregnated so should be waterproof, however the seams are not sealed so the bag itself in its entirety is not waterproof if submerged.

                          10 Lb would be a top limit. this is an ultra lite bag so the material would rip under a lot of weight.
