Re: tree line input
I use 50' of p-cord, but I always rig my bear bag from single branch not between trees. I would like to get some flat spectra cord to replace the p-cord to save a few ounces.

Re: bear bag vs. bear canister
I am assuming that you are going to do the superior hiking trail. You should be fine with a bear bag and line. The bears up here are not very agressive when it comes to getting food. Most of the ca...
