Fall IS camping season and for those traveling into the back country…well, it never hurts to be prepared. We’ve been adding ton’s of new brands but two in particular might pique theĀ interestĀ of those who want to be ready for traveling in bear country. Of course, we don’t expect anyone to be planning any bear encounters but these products will go a long way to prepare and protect you for the unexpected.

Tested By Bears, Used by Campers
It isn’t often that back country travelers awaken to find a bear rummaging through their food, but when it does happen it can be a real drag. That’s why we’re very excited to announce that Backpacker’s Cache has joined the ACK family just in time for the Fall camping season. Backpacker’s Cache creates a very unique container that not only keeps bears out but is also designed to reduce odors from the 6 days worth of food that can be stored inside.

Sprays We Hope You Never Have to Use
There is a lot to consider when traveling the back country. For those that aim to be prepared for every situation, we’ve added Ruger Pepper Sprays to our website. Of course, these are products that will come in handy only in the most dire of situations, so we really hope you never have to use them – but it’s never a bad idea to carry some with you. The sprays include a general pepper spray as well as one designed specifically as a bear repellent.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to be prepared when traveling in areas known to be populated by bears! – Joseph@ACK
