It's small enough not to be excluded by certain states, and it's large enough to pack a wallop several times over, abstemiously used. Instant attitude adjustment. Some of these potentially dangerous animals are on the endangered species list. It wouldn't do to kill them. On the other hand, one s...

I can say that it is about the size of a medium can of hair spray and the holster is made of durable black elastic and that it will fit onto a belt or can be hand held. There is a safety clip to help prevent accidental discharges which must be removed prior to use, a process similar to the clip on some fire extinguishers. There is a nifty instruction manual which explains that it is best sprayed with one's thumb, pointed at the bear. It is not too heavy or cumbersome and could easily be carried in a back-pack without adding too much weight instead of attached to a belt. It is small enough to fit a smaller adult's palm and could be discharged with one hand. Well designed and a comfort in case of emergencies.

Ordered 2 and had them shipped directly to our destination. You can't take on commercial flights. We saw 2 bears in Glacier, but didnt even unholster the bear spray, so can't attest to its effectiveness. You have to understand that this product is only a last resort defense. Nothing replaces good sense when you are in bear country. We hiked 3 days and one of the belt loops came within a few threads of tearing off. It could be easily sewn, but would have had to have been hand carried if it had come off while in the back country. Its not much good if you have to carry it in your pack. Cost about half what they were going for locally. Left with our son for him to use, and for our next visit.

This is my second can of bear spray. My old can expired over 2 years ago and had many dings and dents from being packed hundreds of miles and dropped a few times, so i decided it was time for a new one. Since I have never had to use it I hiked to a remote area to test my expired canister of spray. It was very simple to use and even though expired still worked well. It was very easy to operate and sprayed out a stream/fog of red spray. I am sure the bush survived:) It only sprayed for about 5 seconds so make sure your aim is good. Because it is so easy to use I even send it with my kids when they go camping.
Sierra Trading Post does a great job purchasing bear spray and rotating stock. UDAP Products will have a 3 year shelf life. For Example: If the expiration date is 2017, it is good until the end of that year.

Understandably! I imagine if it can deter much bigger animals like bears, it should work against Cats. That being said, Cougars are completely different creators. I'll leave your question open for discussion. Thanks for asking and have a great day.

There are testimonies of this product on the UDAP website where people have used it against two-legged attackers, mountain lions, bears, coyotes, dogs, etc. The effect is the same on all creatures.
