I'm looking for a dry sack that is light, waterproof and durable for hauling food up a tree out of reach of bears. I'm currently considering the OR Hydroseal. What do you think of this one? If you know of another one, other than the OR Hrydroseal, please let me know. Thank you.

I have the OR Helium and the OR Hydroseal dry sacks. I've used the Hydroseal sack for several years as a storage sack for my down bag and it's been great. The Helium sack is half the weight but I doubt it will hold up like the Hydroseal (it's really tough!) and I suspect it will be more prone to leaks. For really wet trips I'll probably keep using the Hydroseal, the Helium sack's performance is not yet proven in my mind.
