Peace of Mind at an Honest Price!
Whether you need a secure animal-proof camping food container, a mouse-proof cache bag, an ultra-light backpacking food bag, a survivalist food container, or an animal resistant "Go-bag", GrubPack is the rodent proof food bag for you!
GrubPack will effectively protect your food supply from mice, coatis, squirrels, ringtails, ravens, raccoons, skunks, marmots, rats and other small animals, mammals and birds.
GrubPacks are in use internationally from the amazing Andes Mountains of South America to the bizarre conditions of Tasmania. Popular U.S. destinations include the Grand Canyon, Appalachian Trail, Boundary Waters, the Desert Southwest, Rocky Mountains, Washington State and anywhere that pesky animals threaten your camping food supply.
GrubPacks with handles (Option H) make great rodent proof bags for stowing boat ropes or fabric furniture in your RV.
GrubPacks with the zipper (Option Z) and "The SURVIVOR" models make great, light-weight, long-term, easy to transport, animal-proof food containers for survivalist use and emergency food storage.Note: GrubPack is not a bear-proof bag. Animals larger than a raccoon may gain access.

Follow these simple instructions for successful, animal-proof backpacking food storage. GrubPack is the leader in backpacking food containers and long-term storage of survivalist and emergency supplies.
For best results, pack your food, food prep utensils, personal hygiene items, medications, food-related trash and other scented items in resealable plastic bags. Place heavier items near the bottom of the bag. Put these bagged items in a stuff sack, and place the stuff sack in your GrubPack. Do not over-fill the GrubPack to the point where the top closure is stressed or will not seal easily. It is very important that the Velcro closure is firmly sealed from end to end. GrubPacks with zippers (Option Z) require that the zipper be fully closed and tucked under the fully sealed Velcro.
At the camp site, use your GrubPack as a rodent proof hanging food bag. Hang your GrubPack from the provided sturdy grommet, just as you would normally hang any camping food bag for animal-resistant protection. In ideal situations, hang the bag at least 4ft below the supporting tree limb, at least 4ft away from the nearest tree trunk and at least 6ft off the ground. If bears may be present, suspend the GrubPack at least 6ft below the hanging branch, 10ft from the tree trunk and provide a ground clearance of at least 10ft.
If hanging is not an option, build a protective rock pile over the bag. Use rocks that are fist-size or greater. If ravens are present, we recommend that the GrubPack be concealed from their sight. Given enough time and leverage, ravens may be able to pull the mesh apart. For raven prevention, we recommend fully concealing the GrubPack in a crevasse under a rock outcropping. Position the GrubPack so ravens do not have a way to land on top of the bag.
For use as a long-term, rodent proof survivalist or emergency food bag, we recommend our GrubPacks with the added interior zipper (Option Z) or "The SURVIVALIST" model. This double-line of food defense makes your GrubPack a light-weight, flexible, easy to carry, long-term, animal-proof, survivalist food container or emergency 'Go-Bag'. We recommend you load your food, medical supplies and personal care items into the GrubPack and store it in a dry location. Load your heaviest items near the bottom of the bag.

GrubPack can also be used as a rat proof bag for boat ropes, docking ropes or anchor ropes. It makes a great light-weight, rodent proof storage bag for climbing ropes and gear. Other customers find GrubPack to be very effective in use as a mouse proof bag for storing RV fabric furniture, hammocks, beach towels and other items mice love to chew and nest in.
