    Couldn't you test your backpack liners by filling them with water, and seeing if they drip? No need to change them out if they are fine.

    Ultralight Tarp with Reflective Side?

    Searching for ultralight tarps, I didn't see any that had a reflective side. I thought this would be a wanted feature. Why isn't it? I don't think a reflective coating would add that much weight?
  5. Experiences of Wet Gear having NOT used a Pack Liner or Dry Sack

    Has rain ever wet your gear, when you weren't using a pack liner or dry sack, but did use a rain cover for your pack? Aren't backpacks sufficiently rain resistant, especially with a rain cover?

    I wouldn't use it as a pack liner. I was thinking of keeping it in a zip lock, then using it as a bear bag. Maybe you are right and the scent will impregnate food in plastic containers or zip locks.

    Has anyone tried Mint-X trash bags on the trail, as a means to protect packaged food from rodents? Also works with raccoons, but I think it may actually attract bears?
