So the Bearikade saves you 10oz in trail weight but at over $250 that seems asinine. Also, carbon fiber isn't all that great for the environment so I'm going to pass. The URSACK isn't approved by SIBBG as a suitable bear container (you'll get fined $125 for using this in containment zones in Yosemite and other parks).

Agreed that the Bearikade is overpriced for all but the most dedicated lightweight folk who frequently find themselves in bear can country. However, I see people spending about $15 extra for each ounce they save on sleeping bags and tents all the time, so it's really not *that* far out of whack.

We're on the same page ThomasLC. I have a general, moral objection to ultralight gear at these price points. I makes this sport methodology supremely cost prohibitive. I want more people to enjoy the outdoors and ultralight should be a means to that.
