    In saying that, also keen on the orange blaze HE bags as they have carry straps.
    Trouble with cheesecloth is the flies will blow though it.

    I’ve said it before but cheese cloth is only meant to stop carcasses sticking together while freezing them.

    When I put meat aside in cheesecloth, some of the gaps in the cloth weave were wide enough for flies to stick in their ovipositor to lay eggs. Spotted a couple of flies today trying to do that. When i use cheesecloth I use it to separate pieces of meat so it can go in my pack without sweating, not for hanging out in the open. Here is a picture of a female fly illustrating how she can extend it a wee bit.

    Yes I’ve had meat fly blown through cheese cloth. But it’s quite absorbent so if you wrap meat in cheese cloth before you put it in a plastic or canvas bag it soaks up blood

    Cheese/mutton cloth works well to prevent flys contacting a whole hanging deer (skin on). If thereís anywhere the cloth is touching flesh they will get it but the shape of a deer hung up seems to work great.

    The last nzhunter episode showed a good example of how hopeless mutton cloth is.

    That’s a clever looking system. Is it comfortable to comfortable to carry?

    What size(s) are you using? Looked at them many times but unsure what size would be most useful.

    You can get various sized bags for the frame that just clip on. Thats just a half one there that can also be used as a big bum bag with shoulder straps without the frame. I have a 70 litre pack for it too which gives the same set up as Monk's but with a frame.
