Ursack- Off again!

Looks like the Ursack has been shot down again, for at least a year anyway. Here's a quote from there site.

"Despite the fact that the S29 tested well and has a perfect record, SIBBG wants to test it again in Yosemite in 2007, and will not approve it for use anywhere until it passes that test."

I'm in tears. I was hoping to recycle my bear cannister after what it did to my back last year. How envious I was when I ran into two people using it. My wife and I were slogging up a trail and these two people just strode on past us. I asked them what they were using to store their food and they said the Ursack. I said to my wife that is what we would use next year. Oh well. Sigh.
