best bear canisters

Section Hiker likes the Bear Boxer – Contender Model 101.


I’m still using a clear BEARVAULT BV500. An Ursack. Or no bear vault at all, depending on where I’m hiking. And for how long.

  1. I like the Bearvaults 450 and 500. They are clear so easy to see my oatmeal at the very bottom, and have the best shape. I don’t really like the tabs that keep the vaults from opening. They are hard to use, esp when your hands are cold. But with a Swiss army knife they work ok.
