Today Luke is reviewing the High Route Gear RectangleLight Food Bag which is an excellent way to carry food and can be used as a bear bag as well!

Price : $30
Weight : 2.9oz
Colors : Gray, Black and Blue
The RectangleLight Food Bag is perfect for a 2-3 day trip or a simple over-nighter. The simple design allows for easy access to your food and other consumables.
Xpac is a great fabric. While we are familiar with Dyneema Composite Fabrics (DCF) aka Cuben Fiber, we felt that the fabric lacked long term durability. DCF is a great material but while Xpac weighs slightly more it is FAR more durable. We wanted a storage/food bag that could be ultralight but still be scraped on rocks and dropped from trees. Xpac’s laminated and reinforced construction allows for that level of durability.

Easy to use as a bear bag
I keep a large thick plastic bag inside for trash along with lots of line and a carabineer for bear bag usage
There is no logo or label on the bag and I have on multiple occasions who made it. On a gear testing trip a week ago I was having lunch along side of the trail and had a hiker pass, we talked and he asked about my food bag…unfortunately I couldn’t tell him who made it as there isn’t a logo or label and I couldn’t remember it.
