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.

Bought this for our hike on PCT. We had no probs with bears but I loved the canister as I could see through it to find what I wanted without digging. I felt much safer having this to keep both large and small animals out of my food supply.
