Without having tested it on a bear yet....

Verified Buyer Reviewed by At the Helm from Maryland on Monday, August 25, 2014
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.
