I have seen both types of plastic bags listed as items folks use while backpacking. What is the difference? Length? Diameter? Mil thickness? Will either one completely cover a backpack? Is either long enough to use as an emergency bivy? In FBKS any idea where is the best place to pick up some? Are there any other good ideas for heavyweight plastic bags to use?
I have seen a lot written about game bags. I am planning on pillow cases as they are light, and if taken care of should be good to go. Any other lightweight bags you guys use that make sense for a backcountry expedition?
Just a few more days and we are off on our grand Brooks Range adventure, bowhunting for sheep. Thank folks.
