Yes, free, but it tends to rip as soon as you put something in it.

I use those bags for picking up my dog's faeces (the "profanity" filter doesn't filter this term, probably thanks to the British spelling). I discovered some years back that it's a very good idea to double-bag this particular substance. Let's just say that I didn't notice the rip until I'd walked for a while with the bag tied to my belt!

Awesome Stephen! Can you use these bags for cooking fuel too? And can you make shoes out of them?!?

This was my friends Idea when he forgot his day pack. I offered him my old 2lb day pack but he thought that was to heavy. It actually lasted for a 19 mile day hike from Stampede pass to Snoqualmie pass on the PCT yesterday. He says he is going to keep it for our next day hike.
