Lightweight and relatively easy to pack into bag. As others mentioned, practice opening it at home first!
Was light and held more than enough of food for two people for two full days. It’s bit tough to open, but I guess that’s exactly the point to keep bears out!
I usually backpack alone, and a rented bear canister took up almost all the room in my 55L pack that wasn't tent or sleeping bag. I wanted something that would still give me some packing flexibility in bear country, so I picked up a Bare Boxer. I've since suggested it to several people on Reddit who are in similar situations as I was. It's nice to have a product with the same performance as the bigger models, but which won't take up most of your pack space.
This can has been great for keeping my pack volume down on quicker solo trips. Perfect for overnights, but has handled three day trips just as well with a little strategic packing. I did put a strip of reflective tape around it to make it easier to find in the dark, but otherwise the size and function was exactly what I was looking for in a bear can.
Used it once so far.What I like about this can is it its weight and design.Intuitive to open and close.Weight is, I think, best in its class.Overall design should withstand a bear encounter.
