General Lightweight Backpacking Discussion »
Was wondering if anyone out there has ever tried using a space saver sealer and using a battery operated inflator instead of the compression bags like those seen on tv. I see wal mart now caries all sorts of vaccuum bags thought these might work to really increase backpack space
You think it would but it actually makes things more cumbersome in your pack. especially in a bear canister. if you are only doing 2-4 days I wouldn't worry about it but over 5 you actually might try the fruit/vegetable bags from the grocery store and pack them somewhat loose. that way it will form better and fill empty cracks in the canister. you obviously have to be a little more careful with those bags though.
Here I was, thinking I could contribute something (having vacuum sealed 35 sockeye salmon, a handful of halibut and various smoked fish and mammal jerky this summer). Never mind. I return you now to your regularly scheduled programming.
