I've put it through the wringer

Singing, whistling and talking are normally what I do to let the bears know that I am coming. When backpacking solo these are nice to have when I get tired of talking to myself or when my lips are too chapped to whistle.

Jingle Bells, wait wrong season

Strap it to the dog(s) and let them run though the woods. Usually our two idiots make enough noise running around the woods, but the bells make it a little easier to keep track of them and it supposed to keep bears away..... bonus!! I wouldn't want to hang this on my bike bars or pack while I'm riding but we simply strap them around the dog collars and out we go. Haven't lost one yet even though they try. If you have some dogs pick this up and go hiking and if it's the right time of year you can hum jingle bells while dashing through the woods.

I put it on my dog.

Just a forewarning, I have lost probably 3 of these bells, because they're so small. But it puts my mind at ease a little bit when we're in the backcountry. I put one on my backpack and one on my dog's collar so I know where she is at all times and so she's noisy romping around in bear country.

Put it on your friends pack!

I've used it several times

If it's on your pack it gets kinda annoying. If it's on someone else's it's not that annoying. I'm hoping that the bears also find it annoying and doesn't start following us.

This is awesome! Thank you.

Does the job!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I actually purchased this counter assault bear bell to velcro to my dogs collar when we're out on hikes. Not only to help keep any bears away, but it helps me track my brittany spaniel pup as she's following whatever smells he can find while on the trail. The bell provides enough noise and the velcro is heavy duty enough to stay attached to a dog while it's sprinting through the brush. Great product overall.

Does the job

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used these on a recent trip to Glacier NP. I would still recommend giving a loud clap or yell ever now and then while on the trail to alert bears you are there. These did their job.

I've put it through the Ringer

I got this bell to keep tempo with my singing during my hikes. It works similar to a metronome, which keeps the beat so my flow is sick!!! Onetime on the trail, a group of travelers stumbled into my campsite and mentioned that they heard me singing and playing my bell. They told me how great and unique my sound was and then asked me if I wanted to jam with them. We rocked around the campfire all night. I could see through the hearts and souls of complete strangers through the dancing and music being made that night. Those strangers are now close friends of mine and I even met my wife, Moonbeam through one of them. We now have son, Chickpea and he's also learning to play the bell. You never know where life is going to take you. Thanks Counter Assault Bells!!

Its Always Christmas Time

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Everytime Im on the trail, I want to be reminded that Christmas is around the corner. Well, this does the trick! They aren't crazy loud, and they do the job. I haven't seen any bears yet, so they must be doing the trick! I also use one on my mountain bike so people know I'm coming, so thats also super useful.

Refer to the previous reviews. John and Jeff nailed it. Effective, annoying, necessary. You can put one of these on your dog too, who will likely be out ahead and give the bear warning before you would. I also recommend carrying bear spray if you'll be out and about in bear territory.

Noisy, Annoying, Does the Job.

If the bears are anything like me, they'll want to run away from this bell too.

Be Noisy

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

It's a good idea to make noise while moving through bearitory, but what do you do when you don't have a song stuck in your head, and you and your trail buddies run out of things to talk about? You stick a bell on your pack and jingle jangle away. It lets the bears know you're approaching, which is great, because a surprised bear is a dangerous bear.
