Works, but has a flaw

Verified Buyer Reviewed by ScottM from Southern Oregon on Wednesday, November 7, 2012
I was looking for a smaller bear can for weekend trips and this fit the bill. It has the same design as my bigger one, with one critical difference - there is no easy way to actually pop open the lid once you unlock it!

My original canister has a small button to pop open the lid once it's unlocked. This new one, which is identical in every way to the original lacks this obvious and necessary feature.

I'll still continue to bring it because it is smaller and lighter and it serves double duty for me, one as an obvious deterrent to bears and two, makes for a nice seat in camp.
