What is the problem?
Hanging your food in the backcountry is rudimentary, and can be a hassle. Have you ever tried tying a knot around a rock? It's tough. More often than not, backpackers find themselves struggling to hang their food & gear safely.
What is the solution?
The Ultralight Food Hanging System is a complete system that equips you with everything you need to quickly and easily hang your food. It eliminates the struggle of tying a rope around a rock, or the hassle of getting the rope over the branch. It eliminates BFF (Branch Friction Frustration), and its unique pulley system gives you a 2-1 mechanical advantage. Meaning half the pulling force is needed to raise your food bag. Total weight for this complete system is only 6.5oz.
How it works.
It's simple: Fill the ROCK SOK (neoprene pouch) with a few rocks. Attach a carabiner and rope. Toss over a tree branch and use the unique pulley system to pull your food up high away from hungry animals. No more knots around rocks. No more struggles to get your rope over a tree branch. No more ropes cutting into the branch leaving your food hanging only a few feet off the ground.
Risks and challenges
Like every project, there is always the possibility of unforeseen risks and challenges. One challenge that we've heard is common, are products arriving but being stuck "in port". Obviously, we would have no control over this.
