The Backpackers Cache Bear Resistant Food Containers are designed to slip into a backpack and hold approximately 6 days of food. They are expert tested (by bears), and have proven very effective in not only reducing odor transmission of the food inside, but also in keeping even the hungriest of bears out of your food supply.

Great product. Easy to use. I realize it is a "Bear" barrel but serves as a mouse, raccoon, possum and camp seat as well. Didn't think I would like it because of the weight but it well be joining me even when I am out of bear country.
This container does the job. Can't imagine a bear being able to get into it or carrying it away, it's hard for me to hang on to! But, it's easy enough to open if you have a coin, knife, or something thin (I use my spoon handle), and just as easy to close and lock. It takes up a bit of space in your pack, but I hike with my hubby so he has it in his pack and I carry other jointly used items, and it works out great. We did a three day backpack trip and had more than enough food for both of us in this thing. I like it!
