Light enough to pack out with you, no assembly required, cost might be an issue but they are reusable or perhaps resell when you are done. Available at MEC.

Why not some larger dry bags that are well hung (heheh). Keep in mind you'll likely need to keep out nibbly critters as well, so maybe some steel clothesline might be in order.... Dry bags have more uses after your trip, or better resale potential.
Hmmm, thanks for the idea! Thought about the ursack, and it is a good solution, but it was basically a cost thing. Figured burying was useless...If hung its not so much bear I would worry about, but ravens and other birds getting through a dry bag or stuff sack.
