The smallest bear-resistant food container from BearVault, the light, compact BV425 Sprint bear canister is ideal for overnight trips, shared loads or leaving your lunch at the base while you explore.


  • Specialty polycarbonate construction with other resins is rugged and durable
  • Specifically designed to be wide, round and slippery to reduce leverage points for entry from bear jaws, claws and paws
  • Easily slides into small packs and lies flat against your back for a more comfortable carry
  • Stores 1–2 days of food for most hikers; packs in 4–5 days of calories for ultralight hikers
  • Transparent construction makes it easy to see your food; wide opening allows you to reach all the way in to find your treats
  • Screw-on lid is intuitive, secure and doesn't require extra tools to operate; no need to overtighten—2 clicks and it's closed
  • Doubles as a camp stool, a luxury most backpackers leave behind
  • Quick and convenient ground-level storage means you don't have to skip brushing your teeth or waste time finding a good tree to hang a bear bag
  • This BearVault model has been tested and certified as bear-resistant by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee and is approved for use in most parks and wilderness areas

Made in USA.
