Q: How much can the SELKIRK DESIGN Ultralight Food Hanging System lift?
A: The Ultralight Food Hanging System can lift up to 100lbs.
Q: The carabiners say "up to 150lbs", why can it only lift 100lbs?
A: The Ultralight Food Hanging System creates a "2 to 1 mechanical advantage", so you lose some of the lifting ability but you are able to raise your amount with half of the pulling force.
Q: What is a 2 to 1 mechanical advantage?
A: 2 to 1 mechanical advantage means it takes half the pulling force to raise a given object. Example: If you have 30lbs of food & gear, it will only take 15lbs of pulling force to raise it.
Q: Can the Dry Sack be used for water activities like kayaking or canoeing?
A: It can be, but the Dry Sack is designed for Backpacking and other backcountry activities and is not intended to be submerged in water if possible.
Q: How strong are the ropes?
A: The rope is rated at 275lb breaking strength.
Q: What retail stores can I buy the SELKIRK DESIGN Ultralight Food Hanging System?
A: This is a new product and we have not begun expanding product distribution into other sales channels. It is currently only available on our website.
