Just ordered a bag/setup from Gravity Gear for my upcoming trip to NH, but they were underwater in NC so it may not get here in time. Will need to use my Sea to Summit waterproof bag, the S clip from NiteEyz and the 8 mm line I use for tough parts in the Adirondacks. I'll figure it out!

What do you use as a bear bag?

Speaking of bear hangs, are those “scent lock” plastic bags for real or just a gimmick? I use them inside my waterproof stuff sack and have never had a problem, but often wondered if I’m just a sucker who paid 12 bucks for a couple of undersized garbage bags given the sense of smell a bear has.

I would tend to think those scent bags are a complete gimmick. A piece of plastic isn’t going to fool a bears nose!
