For the money, this canister is a good buy. While it is not as light as the Bearikade it is also significantly cheaper. The fact that you can see what is inside is nice. I have both the 450 and the 500 depending on the length of trip. I also have the Ursack and the Bear Boxer Contender. When the agency says you need a hard sided bear canister, the Bear Vault is a tried and true product. ACK's price and free shipping were definitely the best buy I could find on the internet.
Excellent bear canister with easy to open lid. Doubles as a seat on the trail. Best price anywhere!!! Fast delivery!
