|Granite Gear Air Zipsack, xx small to medium L to R.|
I originally purchased the medium-size Air Zipsack based on easily carrying a 5-6 day supply of food and snacks on longer backpacking trips. It is a bit too large for the one or two overnight backpacking trips I'm currently taking, so for future trips on I plan on purchasing an extra-extra small sized Air Zipsack (5 litres) to use for carrying food and "smellables" plus my utensils. My cooking pot is used to only boil water and won't need to be added to the food bag nightly for bear hanging. My food will still be bear bag friendly and it will reduce my weight a little bit and make packing and unpacking my pack a little easier. Inside the Air Zipsack I will still use a smaller odor-proof Opsac.
I have read online about a few horror stories where Opsac bags failed during an outing and food got eaten by critters, so I plan to carry a spare Opsac for redundancy during future backpacking trips. Critters in Florida include bears, raccoons, squirrels, mice and ants.
