What Is the Ratsack Cache Bag?

The RATSACK is a protective, rodent-proof food cache bag. This mesh bag is made of 0.011 diameter wire, 304 stainless steel knitted mesh that prevents gnawing mice and other critters from ruining your food, water, medicine, first aid supplies and other gear. It comes in small, medium, and large sizes and is also customizable to fit your needs.

The largest gaps in the RATSACK are just 5 mm in size. This affords a high level of protection while maintaining a light weight. The materials in the RATSACK will not rust or breakdown with exposure to the elements.

What is it made of?

The stainless steel mesh is a woven knit. The result is a flexible material that lays flat when empty and can be rolled up into a cylinder 18" by 2.5" when not in use. 

How do I use it?

The Ratsack Cache Bag should out of reach of the largest campsite site raiders to provide the best protection. The Ratsack Cache Bag should be hanging with enough space surrounding it so that it rotates freely. At least 1 foot of line should be suspending the Ratsack Cache Bag. The Ratsack should hanging out of reach from large limbs and trunks whenever possible.  Items to be protected should be placed in a stuff sack or other container and then be placed in the Ratsack Cache Bag. This will help to keep out insects and birds.  The Ratsack is not bear proof, but neither is your vehicle. The Ratsack Cache Bag should be properly hung out of reach of bears whenever possible. Use of a dry bag or other sealed container inside of the Ratsack helps to control food odors. The more difficult time a bear has in getting to a container, the more likely he'll move on for easier pickings at the next campsite down the trail.
