The OP and I are both from California. Can anyone else verify having heard this rule in other parts of the world?

Are the kevlar sacks much lighter than my standard black bear can?

@WedaPashi Backpacking is more fun anyway. But that's interesting to know.

comment How bright a flashlight would I realistically need for searching through terrain?
I just asked all the search-and-rescue people I know and they all said that night searches are rare, because they are dangerous. They also said they don't have standard equipment. Mostly, people just grab some 200-lumen head lamps and hope for the best.

@WedaPashi I am going to guess that anyone who is getting drunk in the wild is car camping, and not backpacking. And, in that case, it doesn't matter how heavy things are.

Exactly! Except a bear can probably smell them from a kilometer away.
