What is the difference between a trash compactor bag and a heavy plastic trash bag? I line my pack with a trash bag. The bags I use for our compactor are a heavy paper type. They may have a waterproof coating or a laminated layer, I'm not sure? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
I have a stash of 8 new compactor bags in 3mil and they are my favorite pack liner <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" />. White, so they reflect tons of light down into the pack to aid in finding what you're looking for <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />. Tough enough to be a 'washing machine' on laundry day <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> can be turned into an improptu pillow if need be. cut open with a pair of scissors for a small tarp in a pinch. VB bag for your lower legs in down bag if needed. weigh nearly a bit more than a silly nylon bag, yet much tougher IME. Can be used as a bear bag in a pinch to keep your snacks out of reach of fellow campers who 'forgot' theirs (no yogi'in in my camp <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />)....hard to find these days because of the PC Squad, now they make the wax coated paper ones <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />
PEPPER SPRAY AIN'T BRAINS IN A CAN!
I use water proof stuff but all of mine are individual sacks that contain only certain things. In other words, I have my clothes inside a water proof bag and my cookware is in one, my food is in one, my tent is in one and so on....All of them are specific colors so I know what I am pulling out of the pack when I go to get some thing..It really does help me stay organized which normally I am not all that good at...Hope that helps...Happy Trekking...sabre11004...
