It's also small enough to fit with my diy knupack setup.
It would be good enough for 3-4 days I'd think ....
As long as you're not in the section that requires canisters, and are properly hanging your food but are worried about other critters, you may want to consider something like a Ratsack. Much lighter and easier to pack than a canister.
