    I can get my BV450 in my zpack but I have the arc zip with the front load; I use my urs sack anytime it is doable but there are times when I need the hard canister (yuck)

If I arc-ed the pack prior to attempting to insert my canister, it would only fit in the top of the backpack and it threw my weight distribution off. It seems like a wonderful pack for use without a canister, but I wanted it specifically for trips including the Sierra Nevada.
    Some carry their food in an opsack in the pack and strap empty canister to top of pack using the v-straps. Store food in canister when stopped for day.

    The problem with that approach is that on longer segments (like 6+ days), my canister packing is like an art form in terms of how I squeeze in the food leaving as little wasted space as possible. It wouldn't be practical to redo that process every night for the first few days. On shorter trips where space is less of a premium, it would be possible.
