Lighter and more compact than other bear resistant food containers, the BearVault BV450 Jaunt bear canister features simple access and volume for a 4-day solo backpacking trip or a weekend trip for 2.

  • Features

    • Specifically designed to be wide, round and slippery to reduce leverage points for entry from bear jaws, claws and paws
    • Weight is low and volume is high, thanks to the durable, polycarbonate construction
    • Screw-on lid is intuitive and secure, and doesn't require extra tools to operate; no need to overtighten; see instructional video on how to properly open and close container
    • Transparent canister is easy to see into and doesn't require you to empty the contents of the container to find specific items
    • Wide opening allows you to reach all the way in to find your tasty treats
    • Strap guides aid in strapping and packing canister to your preference; an ideal place for your can is inside your pack just above your sleeping bag
    • Container doubles as a camp stool, a luxury most backpackers leave behind; close lid fully when using as a stool to preserve the screw-top threads
    • This BearVault model has approval from both the Sierra Interagency Black Bear Group and Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee
    • Stash on the ground or in a niche 100 ft. downwind of camp and cooking site; do not hang; never keep BearVault inside your tent
    • Wipe rim clean of dirt and grime, and clean with mild soap and warm water; use a dry bag with your canister near saltwater; apply food-grade silicone to threads as needed
    • Note: harsh chemicals will destroy the plastic; keep DEET and other strong chemicals away, or double bag it carefully if storing inside
    • When not using, store in a dry, cool place out of UV sun rays
