Dyneema® (DCF) Zip Closure Food Bags
These food bags are a little different from most. They feature a water resistant zip closure instead of Velcro or snaps.
At a slight weight penalty over our standard food bags (8g in the medium size), they offer the ability to be used without rolling the top down to close the bag. This means the food bag has the ability to carry more food (approximately 25% more) as you don't have to roll the top down three times to seal it which is handy at the start of a trip. The zip makes the food bags much easier to open and close.
The second image shows three bags in different states of closure. This is the same size food bag pictured zipped shut, zipped and clipped and rolled.
Dimensions quoted are with the top rolled three times as per the standard food bags.
Volumes are listed as rolled and unrolled. Unrolled means zipped shut and clipped without rolling. Rolled constitutes the top rolled three times and clipped shut.
I have included a suggested trip length for each size but individual food requirements vary enormously. If you like to take a lot of food go for the size up.
Available in three sizes, blue or white. Orange in medium only.

A note about approximate volume.
Measurements are as exact as I can make them but volume is generally understated. Volume is calculated using the products dimensions and a volume calculator. Approximate volume does not take into account that fabric items bulge when stuffed full, therefore "real world" volume will be slightly larger.
Look good, strong zip closure very light weight.
These bags are great. Workmanship is really careful and professional, bags are really solid material and ultra lightweight. Snaps and buckles and zips are all really well thought out and makes the bags very easy to use. Overall, these are teriffic and I'd highly recommend Orb Ultralight for anything given the quality of this workmanship.
Just what I needed, perfectly made.
Really well made bags, and quick service. Thanks Pete!
Zip design means it fits a week worth of my dehydrated food in 2 odour-proof bags perfectly.
