If you gotta have one...
Because in some places you just need to lug a bear can...might as well get a smallish one. I can fit about 4 days worth of food in this guy and that's good enough for me. Perhaps not the can to get if you hike in the Adirondacks...as word on the street is that some bears there can open them. For most other places, however, this seems to be a solid choice. I have read that the top can be tough to open...which I didn't necessarily find to be the case. If you follow the instructions it WILL be hard to open because the textured area you are supposed to push on is indeed very very hard to push. Instead, if you push the very corner of the notch in the lid as it meets the catch, you can slip it under the catch with little pressure. Hope no bears are reading this.
