Review: There's a utube vid of a child showing how to open this using a flexible credit card against the lid/lock. EASY ! http://www.youtube.com/watch ?v=QyEbLfL_lSU I'm hopeful BEARS aren't watching this vid or carrying credit cards ;)

Review: This product worked as advertised. It is easy to open and holds a lot. I didn't test it in the wilderness to see how it held up against animals, but it worked well to keep food outside of a tent.

Review: Currently, this bear can is allowed for hiking in Yosemite NP, where a bear can is mandatory to get the permission. This bear can has a very good weight to space ratio and is affordable. It's easy to open with the right technique. It's low weight is only beaten by carbon fiber reinforced bear cans that cost $200 and more. Great product.

Review: A sturdy container, and easily holds several days of food plus other odorous items. Fits nicely in my 3800cu pack. I like that I can see through it. Definitely hard to open, but I don't view this a negative; I simply use the back of my knife to press on the latch. I had a chance to try one that had been used for awhile and it was much easier to open. I think the locking mechanism may loosen up over time. Makes an OK seat. ACK had the best price I found. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the BV450, although I wish I didn't need a canister at all.
