protecting food from bears

Andrew Skurka:

Personally, I own a BearVault BV500 and Ursack Major. I use the BV500 when it’s required, and the Ursack Major in areas with bears and/or mini-bears but without canister regulations.

Buyers guide: Bear canisters || Comparison of volume per weight & cost

Good advice. I do the same.

I’m still using a clear BEARVAULT BV500. Or an Ursack.

The canister is a little better, but bulky.

I hang my Ursack, when I can.

But in areas with bears — and inappropriate trees — tying directly to a tree at eye level works too.  I’ve never had a bear approach my food … though I did once have a mouse get inside the Ursack.
