    I'm getting an Ursack and I'd rather use it with the crush-proof liner when I'm above tree line, but beyond the extra 10.8 oz I don't like the extra bulk. So I started thinking, what if I took the liner out and stored it flat against my back? And then came the "A-Ha!" moment.

    Has anyone tried this?

    I own a S29 Ursack with the aluminum liner. I don't think it will work, it's a thicker gauge that actually seems to have been rolled by a machine to have its shape, its too thick to unroll and re-roll by hand imho.

    I like the idea. Going to give it a try.

    Ditto.

    Makes an excellent canister stove windscreen though.

    Mitchell,
    Just curious, but why only use the liner above tree line?

    Are you meaning like a pack insert/liner? I think it is a bad idea, too much abrasion to the pack. Check out your areas on the Ursack to see what is going on there where the liner edges contact the material. I like the stove windscreen idea, but the liner will have a tendency to curl up and will be very hard to roll up, just try removing it and reinserting into the Ursack, will be a big pita.
