I'm the unfortunate backpacker who had his redesigned Ursack bags ripped open while camping at Colden. Switched to the BearVault, which is itself now being scrutinized. Just finished watching a video that a guy did who put his Ursack on a tree and had sardines in it. He videotaped the interaction various animals had, including a rather small bear. The bear actually put multiple bite marks that penetrated, but did not rip the fabric. Ursack realizes teeth can puncture their product, which is why the will replace bags with rips 1/4" in size. Even not getting through, stuff would definitely get crushed inside the bag. No way I would use one now, even if they were allowed in the High Peaks.
