BearVault BV500-Journey®


The BV500-Journey® is the gold standard for multi-day adventures, long distance hikers, and aspirational thru hikers. The largest and most spacious of BearVault canisters, BV500s have logged more miles than any other canister. Whether packing a few hearty meals for a group, or counting every ounce of calories to reach your goal, the BV500® is up for the journey, fitting 7 plus days of food.

  • 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
  • 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
  • Screw-on lid is intuitive and secure, and doesn’t require extra tools to operate; no need to overtighten
  • 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
  • Rounded corners allow for smooth packing and removal
  • 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
  • Fits about 7 days of food for one person.
