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.
Did he have the aluminum liner in it?
