Best FAQ

Question: Aren't animals attracted to equipment made of out food?

Answer: No. Animals aren't stupid. Animals don't consider Edible Gear food. You on the other hand, are clearly smart enough to understand that weight saving takes precedence over everything. As you're choking down your sleeping pad just think to yourself how easy it'll be to heft that pack tomorrow morning with two ounces less weight.

The multiple drawbacks are so obvious I'm not even going to take the time to point them all out.

I'd heard of these guys years ago too.  I've never seen anyone using them in the backcountry.  There's a reason for that.
