Bought 2 of these. First time out in the BWCA, placed the barrels as instructed. Left alone for no more than 3 hours. Black bear bit through the top of the blue barrel directly under the lid on both barrels and carried them off! It wasn't just a tooth mark either. Tore large holes in each barrel. I can't imagine what a grizzly would have done.... On an up note, we were able to salvage some of the food after we found the barrels. I will be re-evaluating food storage for my next trip.

Well, I can't tell you how good it is for keeping bears out of your food! Hopefully, I'll never know. It was a better price then I found at my usual shopping sights. I like the transparency factor. That saves time from pulling everything out for that one thing you want thats usually buried.

Sometimes a bear canister is required per regs in the area you find yourself in, but even when not legally required, they are a great method of safeguarding your food and anything sweet or aromatic from pests - large and small. This bear vault is excellent. It's secure and a great seat, too. It fits nicely inside most midsize hiking bags, the clear nature of it is helpful for evaluating contents, and the large lid is nice for sitting things in as you sort through the can in the field. I'm a fan, and I think it's worth carrying on longer trips through the backcountry even when the local regs do not necessarily require bear cans.
