I just found the most essential piece of backcountry gear since the avy transceiver. You know how sometimes you're in the backcountry, and you just want a damn banana?? But if you put it in your pack it gets bruised, and nobody wants a bruise on their banana. Well, enter the Banana Guard!!

Alternate definitions at urbandictionary.com notwithstanding, this thing actually works. It does in fact accomodate quite a range of banana shapes and sizes. And of course it is quite a conversation piece when you whip it out, so to speak.

Dood! I actually own a banana guard! It is the crudest-looking piece of fruit protection gear, ever! But does protect a banana pretty well...

I hear OCD is adamant about guarding his banana in the BC... and keeping it clean and well groomed too.

And I thought I was radical making a PVC tube to carry an apple or orange, nothing better than some fresh fruit after a hike or skin into something nice...but I have never thought of eating a banana...but the container compared to the photo of the banana hammock dies disturb.

First picture that came to my mind as well. There is something wrong with me.

i like to keep my banana a little on the warm side cause if it gets cold it shrinks and then nobody wants it
