The ideal bear-resistant storage for weight conscious, long-distance hikers or group trips, the BearVault BV475 Trek bear canister securely stores 5–6 days of food and fits sideways into most packs.


  • Shorter than the BV500 model, yet light and roomy
  • 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
  • Clear sides make it easy to find your next meal and stay organized; 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
  • Strap guides allow you to secure it to your pack if preferred
  • Rounded corners offer smooth packing and easy removal
  • Doubles as a camp stool
  • 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
