For those of us over the years who have found the overall size of bear canisters overwhelming for 1 to 3 day trips this is your solution! In other words, weekend warriors, tune in. This is small, easy to use, and handles 2 to 3 days worth of food for one person quite well. Admittedly you’ll need to pack small non bulky food items to get more days worth of capacity out of the design . It’s also perfect for day tripping, for example going to climbing area in bear country and being able to set your food down without being concerned that a bear or squirrel will take off with your goods. Additionally I found this to be excellent for use in my sea kayak. It fits most kayaks easily, though you may need to dry bag the container in the boat as it’s not entirely water proof. If you do short trips into bear country this is a great solution over bringing a larger bear vault or García container, it’s even smaller than the small bear vault. In the era of fast and light this allows you to play it safe, light, and compact all at once. Enjoy.
Thanks to the global issue and living in California - I have no as of yet been able to put a pack on my back, nor have a chance to use my Bare Boxer. I really like mine, I've put trail meals in there to get a feel for what I can fit in there and it'll work fine for my trips. Looking forward to getting out and using it.
The small one was perfect for my 3day/2night backpacking trip in the Olympic National Park. The Park will loan you canisters, but they are so large and bigger than I needed. This fit the bill perfectly. And yes, the rangers were checking permits and your bear canisters in the back country.
Great bear cannister for parks that require it. Good enough to store a weekend's worth of food which is all I need.
Lightweight and relatively easy to pack into bag. As others mentioned, practice opening it at home first!
