Any one ever use food cannisters for backpacking?
Does anyone have a reccommendation for a particular one?
Do they fit easily into a pack?
Are they required for ANWR?
I will be hiking north of the continnental divide, so there are no trees to hang sacks and i was wondering if these cannisters are worth bringing and if they do indeed work. I have researched some cannisters and have also come up with a so called bear proof sack called the ursack anyone ever use this? I need a container that will accomodate enough food for 2 people for 10 days. From what i have read the cannisters only hold enough food for six days for one person, so this means i need 2, This takes up a lot of valuable space in my pack. I have in the past just used a stuff sack but this trip is to remote to chance having critters take off with my life line. if anyone has any info or thoughts i would appreciate it .
