Now that I have replaced my bigger items with lighter, more “appropriate” gear, I started looking to the little things to lighten up. Immediately, my bear bagging system jumped out at me. My old system (OR dry sack, 50′ of 3 mm PMI cord and a #4 Nite Ize S-Carabiner) weighed a whopping 7.5 oz, without a rock sack. So, I looked around for a suitable replacement. What I decided on was a MYOG Silnylon rock sack, a ZPacks Large “Blast” Food Bag, a ZPacks Mini-D Carabiner and 50′ of 1.4mm Z-Line Slick Dyneema Cord. So, check out my video detailing these items and let me know what you think…
