I love the idea of strapping the panel to the top of the pack as you've done in this photo. I can also see possibilities of using my pack's compression straps to hold the panel vertically and tightly against the pack's back (say, when hiking through heavy brush). My question is, how careful must you be when cinching? My assumption is the panel is fairly fragile. Still, at it's low price, I figure it's worth a test.
Encountered the bear on the Blue Creek trail. He was not aggressive towards us but was very interested in sniffing our packs for food. Were you using some kind of air tight bag for the food when you slept with it?
