According to the Web site, you must drop the SubPack into 6-15 feet of
water. That makes it useless at most creeks, a number of lakes (those with
shallow shorelines), and stealth campsites. What do you do in those
situations? (And if the answer is "hope there are no bears," then why bother
packing in 12 oz. of marginally useful equipment?)
