At a campsite regular garbage bags are good for one thing – a small amount of garbage. Campsites often have sticks and rocks that will easily rip holes in thin bags.
You should be using contractor bags. As in 3 ml thick contractor bags. They’re tough as nails, and because of that, can be used for all sorts of other things. Here are just a few of the things I find myself using contractor bags for:
- Bungee around a tree for garbage.
- Hauling trash for a long distance in your car (not going to leak).
- Emergency poncho.
- Simple dry sack.
- Footprint for smaller tent.
- Storing wet or muddy clothes.
Pick some up from Amazon.
How else would you use them?
