The other day when I was doing my test-hike through Indian Peaks, I had a brief conversation with a couple who thru-hiked the CT a few years ago. When I told them I was planning to do it next year, I got the usual recommendations-- "pace yourself," "keep lots of water on hand," etc. etc. etc.-- but I also was recommended to carry an Ursack. My "advisers" based their recommendation on the Ursack's low weight, relative bear-proofness, and ease of storage/hanging.
It got me to thinking that, at the very least, I should investigate. Have any of you used an Ursack? If so, how did it work? Any thoughts? I'm just curious.
