“I have used BearVault® on about 8 trips to the Sierras and in Oregon and they have performed flawlessly. In Yosemite and on the JMT they were checked out by bears every night and we had no problem at all. I really like the fact that I can see what is inside.
Thank you for selling such a good product and standing behind it.” – Ward
“I backpacked the Teton Crest trail last summer. I used my BearVault® on the trail and had a black bear try really hard to get into it. He put a lot of deep gashes on the lid but was never able to get into it. The deep gouges are kind of like a souvenir from the trip. I also have another bear canister but I like yours better. They are lighter.
They also don’t get water in them if I forget to turn them upside down and it rains.” – Paula
“We’re fellow San Diegans who are very happy with the BearVault® product. This summer, we had our BearVault® 500 with us in the High Sierra’s. While camping at Badger Lakes Thousand Island Lake and Island Pass, we had a bear visit. The bear pulled out our BearVault® from where it was stashed between a rock and log. We found it about 20 feet away, covered in dust, paw marks, dried drool and a few scratches, but totally intact and secure. Good stuff.
We’re buying more for the Scout Troop.” – Erik, Chrystal & Joe
“Love your products! I was just on a 10 day backpacking trip in Denali National Park.
Here is a photo of a grizzly trying to get into my BV400.
Barely even a scratch on it when he was done. Keep up the great work!” – Zack
