Very sturdy, hard for me to get into at times so should be bear proof!
Best volume-to-weight ratio of the bear cans. The tab on the top you have to press in to get past the stop is tough with bare hands after a day on the trail; but added pressure from a spoon handle or anything else gets you past it.
