Outdoor Research Zip Sacks
When you’re on the trail how do you carry the food for your trip?
Is it in a ripped-up, ultra-thin plastic grocery bag? Or in a stuff sack that forces that item you’re really looking for all the way to the bottom so you can never quite get your hands on it?
Either way the Outdoor Research Zip Sacks will make snacktime on the trail a little more efficient. The horizontal zipper allows you to open it up and see what’s inside so you can get to that leftover slice of pizza you’ve been craving for over 2 hours now.
Guide Tip: Get a Medium for the bulk of the food for your trip and a Small for your daily rations .
If your food system is dialed think about one (or two) of these for all those miscellaneous items (spare socks, dry gloves, headlamp, compass, blister kit, lighter, etc.) that are always floating around the lid of your pack.
Small: 8 inx 5 x 4 (244 cu. in. or 4 liters) 1.3oz.
Medium: 10in x 6 x 5 (427 cu. in. or 7 liters) 1.4oz.
