The Ursack MAJOR XL (formerly S29.3 Major AllWhite) (IGBC cert. no. 3738) is the larger version of our classic Major (formerly S29.3 AllWhite). The Major XL holds about 7 or more days of food for one person and weighs 8.7 ounces. Otherwise it is identical to the Major. The Major XL is made of “bullet proof” Spectra fabric and is designed to prevent bears from getting your food in their territory. It comes with an integrated six foot, 2,500 pound tensile strength cord. The Major XL is about 24 inches in circumference, 18.5 inches tall and holds about 925 cubic inches. While the Major XL is nearly critter resistant, the Ursack Minor may be better suited for that task. And, the AllMitey is both bear and critter resistant. Neither the AllMitey nor the Minor come in the larger 925 cu. in. size. The Ursack with improved Spectra seams (beginning April 2014) passed the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee test and was placed on its bear-resistant products list on July 31, 2014. That list is the one relied on by many, but not all, wilderness agencies, and restrictions may still apply-check first. SOME AREAS REQUIRE HARD SIDED CANISTERS. Limited Lifetime Warranty. We will replace, or refund the cost of, any properly used Ursack Major XL S29.3 in which a gap, tear or hole larger than 1/4 inch is caused by a bear. This 1/4 inch standard is the criteria used in the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee’s test protocol. We ask that customers return any damaged Ursack to us for inspection. Note: Due to the difficulty in weaving high tech Spectra, our supplier is not always able to deliver pristine white fabric (the only color available). Your Ursack may arrive with minor cosmetic blemishes. You won’t see these once you have used Ursack in the wilderness, and these in no way compromise the performance of the product. Some units may have different color thread or rope than those pictured.
