Thanks to all of you for the discussion on protecting food from mice. I have had very good luck also with opsak a plus the zpack food bag (which supposedly is very rodent resistant). 

However, I understand that N Cascades Natl Park REQUIRES canisters, ursaks, or hanging your bear bag. 

I have been very content in my multi-year hike to keep my zpack with opsak inside my tent. It has seemed very safe. But I don't want to break the law.  Or harm a bear. Any thoughts?


Ps after rotator cuff surgery I doubt I could hang a bag every night and take it down every morning without harming delicate repaired shoulder -- but hate extra weight of canister or ursak.
