I spend a lot of weekends in the Grand Canyon. You don't typically see bears there. And you don't see rodents either. But you hear them. At night. When they invade the plastic grocery bag you forgot to hang up, crinkling around sampling one tiny bite of every Power Bar you brought. Not to ment... Read More

    First backcountry trip and I was torn between bear bag v bear canister. Hiked Shenandoah where I didn't need the canister. Overlooking the weight difference I figured I'd go with the canister because they're required out west. Couldn't be happier w my choice. Never worried about hanging a bag. Just dropped the canister at night and retrieved in the morning. Awesome! Just a note...don't spill food on your pack or spill on the canister where it might then rub food inside your pack. Or spill food in your pockets. Or spill tuna juice on your clothes. You don't want any, ANY, hint of a food smell anywhere near your sleeping area.

    We hiked the A.T. in Virginia over the Labor Day weekend. That the bear canister came with the nylon case and straps was a bonus. It attached easily to my old school Kelty external frame back.

    We bought two, and the second one will come in handy for longer trips.

    Has yet to be bear tested, but compared to other bear canisters I've used, it seems solid. Enough space for 4-5 days of backpacking food.

    Easy to use. Not really lightweight, but there is no such thing when you have to guard against bears. A really determined bruin could get it open eventually, but the idea is just to make it inconvenient enough he looks at someone else's food and leaves yours alone.

    Seems great. I originally had a clear blue bear vault and loved that it was transparent but hated the lid. The lid on this one opens easily with a coin/knife. I plan to carry a washer tied to my pack so I don't have to worry about losing it. 4 stars only because it's black. Heavy too, but unless you want to spend $$$ on a carbon fiber one, they all are.

    • Answer Hi there. I was asked to respond to your question, so here goes. When used as intended the bear keg will prevent bears from successfully getting at any food or scented items you have with you. This prevents bears from learning food aggression and keeps them from associating people with food. A fed bear is a dangerous bear. With the bear keg, that bear can try all he wants to get that delicious smelling treasure inside, but it's not happening. These canisters are specifically designed to be difficult for a bear to pick up and carry, and are literally impossible for them to open. Perhaps most importantly, a bear canister should NEVER be stored in or near your tent. Ideally, it should be 100 yards or so from your tent - sticking it in a bush or against a rock works well. Hope this hopes to clarify :)

    • Answer The actual volume of this canister is about 545 cu in.

    • Answer The actual volume of this canister is 248 fluid ounces to the brim as I measured it. It was just one cup shy of holding two gallons. That is 447ci, which is about the same displacement of an early 70's model Chrysler or Pontiac V8 engine.

    • Answer By the way, the specs on the weight and size are slightly incorrect too. It's actually 2.4 lbs, which is 2 lbs, 6 1/2 ozs. And the width is really 8 1/2 to 3/4 inches because of the lip in the middle, but it is 8 inches at the top and bottom and ten inches tall.

    • Answer One last thing, in case you're still wondering how big it really is and need a visual. Well, I was able to stuff six High Mountain Jerky three person serving dehydrated pouches in, six Libby's cooked ground beef ( 6oz not-dehydrated) pouches, six packets of oatmeal, and finally six protein bars totally crammed full with just about enough room left over to squeeze in few salt and pepper packets. So that was everything left in it's original packaging, just packed in very tightly. I suppose I could squeeze one or two more pouches in there if I were to repackage and vacuum seal them all, but so far I have not needed to. Or you could always just get a bigger canister too for longer trips, but I prefer the smaller ones myself. So I guess that pretty much sums it up.
