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. July 5, 2007 at 4:38 am #596973 jcocci 699 PostsOh where do the comments begin?

It is the crudest-looking piece of fruit protection gear, ever! But does protect a banana pretty well…Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.
