Verified Buyer Reviewed by aged parent from Colorado on Wednesday, September 21, 2016
Hopefully it will never be used; and hopefully if I ever need it, it will work. I bought it for its unintended use: against possible bear attacks. doesn't have the range or capacity of the big bear sprays, but has 5x the capsicum. The advantage to me is, I can carry it in the sunglass pocket on my (Osprey) hydration pack. If you don't have it with you, or can't get to it, you can't use it, and I carry my pack on any adventure I have in the backcountry.
