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

    We purchased this canister for a three day hiking trip for two in Colorado where caching in a tree may not always be easy. We will only be putting food for two days (as we will be eating our first day meals before camp) for two people along with scented items. We are light weight food packers when need so will have no problem making this size work. It didn't seem as heavy as I had feared and can also double as a nice stool when needed. The screw openings were simple and we used the back of our Benchmade knife blade no problem. It would be nice to have a clear canister to see where your food is, but this price will do!

    Given the large number of places I would like to go that now require a bear-resistant container, I decided to spring for this one. While it is a bit on the small size, it does fit nicely in the inside of my pack. Can't beat the quality or price.

    Fits nicely in my Eddie Bauer Alchemist 40L. Good deal comes with case. I did use some WD40 on one latch to get it to turn a bit easier. Quarter seems best coin to use.

    I had none of the issues mentioned by some other reviewers. No problem opening it the first time without any instructions or how-to hints from users on this website or others. With the canister sitting on the ground and holding it steady with one hand, the fasteners are easy to turn but not loosey-goosey. No need to grasp it in a "headlock" as someone else did. Lid lifts off. I did it several times. I notice that if needed, there's a very small gap around the lid, just big enough for a human fingernail or a thin tool. I can imagine that over time the lid lip might gunk up and need to be cleaned so it doesn't stick. And that the mechanism under the fasteners might need a little lubrication. I also have no problem with the fit and finish which on the item I received seem first quality, and not a "second" or factory reject. I do wish the opening were larger, but because I can see it in the image I wasn't surprised. For only 8 ounces more than the much more expensive same size metal canister from another manufacturer, I'm happy with this one. As for the strap sack, I wouldn't put a canister on the periphery of my pack. I always put it near the center of the mass for good weight transfer to the hips. Another warning about the strap sack-- bears will use it to carry your canister much farther away than they'll carry a plain canister. Me, I'll use the sack for something else.

    • Answer The actual volume of this canister is about 545 cu in.
      Answered on 8/26/2010 12:00:00 AM by Customer Care from Sierra Trading Post
    • 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.

  • Question “Is this container Yosemite approved?”
    Asked on 7/23/2010 12:00:00 AM by Anonymous from Unknown
    • Answer While this is NPS approved Yosemite has it's own regulations that you can find at: http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/containers.htm
      Answered on 7/25/2010 12:00:00 AM by Customer Care from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer No; None of the UDAP canisters are on Yosemite's approved list.

    • Answer On 09/23/2012 I checked and this canister IS APPROVED. See http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/containers.htm to verify.

    • Answer I'm from Central California and a experienced backpacker of over twenty years. Who cares if it Yosemite approved...I've backpacked for weeks with and without a container and never have had my food stolen by a bear. The best thing about the canister is a seat to sit on. The thru hikers on the PCT sleep with their food in a stuff sack. Shame on the National Park Service for even requiring containers. Start at a Trail head in the Forest Service and then enter Yosemite. No worries about the Pine Pigs of the National Park Service indoctrinating you into their communist regime. Whoever required the container should be tried for treason by fellow backpackers.

    • Answer So hey you all, I thought mabye I should just really tell you about what happened last weekend. Yes, I'm from southern California, but I really just wanted to tell you all that my best friend got raped by a bear on the PCT. Unfortunately I think it was because he felt that hiding one bag in the tree was somewhat worth more than hiding two in the bush...or getting a bear canister, or something like that. Apparently, the bear he wrestled with over the bag had never heard of it. And the really weird thing about it was...that just about every single last coyote on the mountain came down around to yip and holler about the whole scuffle...as if it was UFC 193 or something. Unfortunately nobody was quite quick enough to catch any of it on video, so you'll just have to use your imagination about what happened...but guess who won?
