Ok so instead of buying another well known brand I decided to give Yaktrax a shot, what a mistake! While attempting to summit Mt. Marcy on 10/30/10 under blizzard conditions I blew a chain which caused me to lose tractions when I needed it the most, then another chain popped and finally came off my foot and was hangin on the back of my boot. I tried to repair it but under 50mph winds I was unable to. Then trying to get down the ice covered rock without traction was the most dangerous thing I have done in a long time. This could have resulted in a serious accident. Use these only for walking on flat ground Do Not attempt to use these above the treeline even it there is only a little bit of snow and ice. Complete Failure.

I purchased the BV500 and was pretty happy with it. One thing I would add or change is the lid and add more gripping or friction tape in order to grip the lid when pushing in to open it when raining. One more thing I added was reflective tape both red and white strips in order to locate my container at night or in the morning.
Overall great Bear Vault with lot's of room and ez to pack in my Gregory Palisades 80.
