Rodent/Raven-Proof Container

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

  • Great value!

    this is a really sturdy canister, but still fairly light. It's National Park approved. LOVE that this came with it's carrying case included! This is an incredible bargain!
  • Great Deal
    Reviewed by DScottOsage from Oklahoma City on Wednesday, April 4, 2018
    After extensively reading reviews on bear canisters, I had decided that i would purchase either a UDAP or Garcia canister. From what I read about the USFS Rangers in the Adirondacks, Garcia is better that the others, but UDAP is good, too. With STP selling these for $20+ less than anyone else, I bought two. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they came with the UDAP nylon carrying bag inside, too.

    it keeps the food safe. one thing, when i first got it the locks were very stiff. I just cranked them about a 100 times with a large screwdriver until they loosened up. Now it works just fine.
  • Bear Proof Container
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by 5’10” Shopper from Virginia on Friday, July 28, 2017
    This arrived a day after our trip so I purchased a clear, more expensive one locally. Personally I like this one better due to the longer more narrow shape. It also feels sturdy as a seat and getting it open is two quick turns with a pocket knife or quarter. The clear one opens by pressing and turning past two notches which you get used to but was a challenge at times. You can't see through the sides like the other one but it comes with a lightweight storage case to strap onto your pack. Sierra's price can't beat. If you need a bear proof container this is a really good deal.
  • Broke on First Use
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by CriaCO from Colorado on Friday, July 14, 2017
    I took this backpacking a couple of days ago for the first time. I opened/closed it the proper way, but by the second day, one side would not close at all. Upon closer inspection, the small 'pipe' that turns to secure the lid had split and was unable to be moved. This is not good, especially if it happened to both sides and you couldn't secure it at all. Or worse, if it split while closed, you may not be able to get it open with your food in it. I did like the product besides this. I will be returning it and not getting a replacement for fear of the same thing happening.

  • “How does this hold up for backpacking? Is weight/space an issue? ”

  • “STEALING your food is actually NOT the issue. I would gladly let any bear have my food in exchange for my being allowed to leave. The protection an outdoor aficionado needs is odor containment. A bear that smells your delicious food will come after it, AND you. Sleeping in your tent.”
    Asked by Lifelong Alaskan from The Greatland on 6/19/2016 6:16:36 PM
    • 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 :)

  • “Capacity says 70 cubic inches - is this right? Similar bear containers that are just slightly larger hold 600-700 cubic inches. Please clarify.”

    • 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
    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
